Day One “Faith” (My RODE Reel Competition) 21/04/14

by weslar

I found out about this competition a while ago, planning ideas – it was a time where ideas didn’t flow but stayed put inside my brain. But today the brain let that idea out, I opened ‘Celtx’ so I could relay this information to screen, the ideas flowed – and I started writing.

The flow I found worked because the ideas were becoming instant because I envisioned the story as I was writing, then I remembered the competition asks for an under 5 minute film, so I duplicated the first 2 scenes which I was really happy about and re-wrote segments of the scenes to alter what I had written.

So now I’m left with my two scenes in front of me, I’m happy with them. Extremely satisfied with the first one, but still working on the second. The third and final scene isn’t there but it will be in time. Onto the storyboards, I drew a plan of each shot I specifically want, so that I’m ready when it comes to filming.

The first scene should be filmed this week, which I can not wait to direct.

Hope all goes well.
