Learning Diary Week 7 – 14/03/14
In our second production day, the set design team went into the studio to think about the arrangement of desks and chairs for the show, as well as the lighting. We decided that we would have gel lights on each side of the set, with different colours to represent each team. We also went out to get more for the set. As we managed to get some free posters last week, we decided to think about buying some props and more posters using the money donated by the class for the budget (everyone has given £1).
During the lunch break, I went to o2 Academy as I thought we might be able to get some free posters from them of past gigs that had been on there. As there were not any members of staff available to check, I then went back later that afternoon when the rest of the group went to buy props. I was given several A3 posters as well as A5 flyers and postcards that I think will look good on the set. Also, as all of the posters we got last week were for urban music, these will give the set some diversity in the range of music.
At the end of the day the class tried to do a run through of the show with everybody in the roles they are appointed for in the first take of our assessment. As I will not have a role for this take I was a guest on the show. Unfortunately, due to the VTs not being ready and the Presenter being unclear on the structure, we were unable to film past the first round. We have planned to meet up during the week to try and film at least one whole run-through before our assessment.
