Group work, preparation and filming shots
Regardless of the pressure of time and schedule, we still kept the atmosphere (away from filming) as friendly and relaxed as possible. If we all felt comfortable with eachother, then we were able to perform to the best of our ability. Also, to prevent a tense and perhaps grouchy atmosphere and thus preventing an enthusiastic mood.
This picture demonstrates the relaxed atmosphere that we worked under and the general fun we had doing it. If you enjoy working on something, then you have ambition to make it as good as you can. This was the approach that we took on the filming day.
This shot clearly established how and why we decided to show James infront of the beautiful scenery behind. However, a less attractive public bin beside him was not easy to miss - so we had to be very creative with our shot in order to try and capture as little of the bin as possible.
Here is a picture I took of the equiptment that we carried around that day, it includes a bag full of the make-up, costume and refreshments (as it was a long morning) as well as the big black case that protected the camera, which was quite heavy. It took at least 7 minutes for us to set up our camera and tripod, whenever we moved location (which, as shown by the music video itself) was a lot.
