OUR FIRST DAY OF FILMING!!
After spending an hour or so on that we headed back towards the deserted house, our main shooting location. This is where at first I had to lay down in the bath and have the fake blood applied to my dress, hands and the sides of the bath to make it look like a crime scene. Some other bathroom appliences such as the sink got slightly splattered in blood which aroused more creativity for us later.
We tried to take as many shots from as many different angles as possible to make sure that we wouldn't lack footage when editing. considering we wanted many different shots just like in 'se7en' it was probably the most sensible thing to do. We had close ups to create more dramatic suspense of my bloody hand with blood dripping from my finger-tips hopefully encouriging the audience to feel more thrill.
For our last few shots I had yet again (bare footed I must add) walked back to the forest and to take a few more shots of the trees, we had a wonderful point of view shot of spinning watching the tree tops. It's a truly excellent shot and if edited in the right way can be made into a great part of the opening. We also took an extreme close up of a flower, a forest violet that we thought the light was shinning beautifully on, hoping that we can somehow manage to be creative enough in our editing to pull the image into out production.
Over all I believe we had a FREEZING, yet very productive day in filming and I can truly say thuroughly enjoyed ourselves!
