The day panned out as so:
- 11 AM: Wardrobe shopping at Target
- 12 PM: Set up of lights, camera, acquiring of props
- 1 PM: First filming installment with Look 1.
- 1:30 - 3 PM: Break
- 3:30 PM: Second filming installment with Look 2 and 3.
- 4 PM: Wrap-up.
I did encounter a few problems with the shoot. The first is technical: the camera battery consistently died upon filming. This was, thankfully, fixed later on during the day before the second installment of filming. Secondly, I didn't factor in the time and patience needed while filming with children, especially a 12 month old. It was near impossible to direct Willa and keep her interest in the setting around here. I also needed to factor in nap-time, as Willa performed her best after waking up from a nap.
In the end, I did come out with some great shots. I can't wait to play around with the film and see if I can manage to put together my original storyboard. I may outsource the editing to my sister who is a multimedia producer. This will hopefully give the film a more professional outlook!
