Fade out

As we had no dialogue in our main task, I've decided to write the script more as stage directions and a play by play of what is happening as you watch it. We originally did have sounds in main task but as we did not use professional actors, they couldn't take it seriously and we had to cut the sound out, also looking at other peoples work from previous years we thought that sound can sometimes cheapen the look of a film and make it amateur and not professional.


AS a location we decided to change our plan as we tested some shots outside and the lighting wasn't right so therefore we decided to film inside in the corridor where there was a window on one side to natural light was let in. We made sure we were filming during day light so that the natural light was able to come in and not make the shots look too dark. Also the reason why we chose the film here was to try and make it as authentic as possible as the corridor made it clear that we were filming in a school.
This is where we shot the tilt, up down shots of each character, we chose here as it was a blank canvas and the places we chose originally didn't work due to many things such as lighting, not being free and we needed an encloses space that the characters could walk around in their costumes and not offend or get in the way of anyone.

Audience Research

Inspirations to our Main Task

These were some of the inspirations from youtube that we have used to help us with our filming and editing process. I found looking on youtube for films similar to ours and gaining ideas from them and comparing them helped us a lot. I felt like it open our minds to what was possible and which was totally unreasonable, by watching several of the marvel and superhero like films it gave us inspiration for what to do for our main task.

Sound and Foley research

Foley Artist: Foley is the reproduction of everyday sounds for use in film making. hese reproduced sounds can be anything from the swishing of clothing and footsteps to squeaky doors and breaking glass. The best foley art is so well integrated into a film that it goes unnoticed by the audience. It helps to create a sense of reality within a scene. Without these crucial background noises, movies feel unnaturally quiet and uncomfortable. Foley artists look to recreate the realistic ambient sounds that the film portrays. The props and sets of a film do not react the same way acoustically as their real life counterparts. Sound within the film industry: A sound film is a motion picture with synchronized sound, or sound technologically coupled to image, instead of a silent film. Reliable synchronization was difficult to achieve with the early sound-on-disc systems, and amplification and recording quality were also inadequate.

his is the music we used at the beginning of The Package, our preliminary production. We felt that it was perfect for our film because it is eery and sinister, which how we wanted to present Kyle's character.

Prop List & Shot list

The main props we used for our main task was the out fits, as it was a super hero film we tried to use as many props as we had lying around and that we could to make to make it looks the best it could possibly be.
These are some of the masks we used for our actors, different colors were tried to represent each side with the goodies and the badies. The one covered it caution tape was a continuous theme we tried to keep with the 'supergood' having them all having a certain thing with the tape on it to show a sign of that they were united and together as one.
This outfit was for 'Blue bolt' played by Sophie Marie Clegg, her character was one of the goodies and we used red lipstick to try and insinuate her feminine side and red lipstick can also try to represent sexuality, her outfit consisted of the 'blue bolt' top which we thought tied in well for her name and small gold shorts again quite a fun color choice. This outfit was trying to represent bright, pure look, her makeup was kept very subtle and pure trying to portray her innocence but with the red lipstick contrasting this maybe showing a different side to her.
This outfit was for 'Black ice' who was played by Bella, we tried to keep it very simple and dark and mysterious, all makeup used was black and her hair being dark added to this to give it a negative effect. The caution tape appears again with one of the badies going across her body and the tight leotard showed a harsh, stern effect which was meant to represent that she would take no messing and was serious in her appearance.
This was the props we used for 'Beefinator' who was played by Kyle the outfit was kept very simple with no top so he was shirtless, showing his torso which was muscly to show his strength as one of the badies, again the mask has caution tape on it which represents he is in the 'bad' team, the black tights we just kept simple to try and look skin tight and make him look as muscly as possible.
Alex Lister played the intimidator and his outfit was very similar to Kyle's just not including the mask but instead of the mask he had the caution tape round his wrists, again to show off his body we decided to go with no top this insinuated his muscly torso and made him and Kyle look tough together, representing strength with badies.
Lastly Alex Scholes who played the 'golden man' we decided to keep the props for his outfit again quite bright and make him stick out as he was the leader of the good team, with bright red as the cape and gold tights this is quite a unique look. In our survey it was shown that red is mostly associated with goodies so that why we bring in the red in his cape and with Sophie's lipstick to try and get a common theme.
