Film Opening - UK Shoot 2
For the second half of our filming here in the UK we focused on the exterior scenes. This took almost two hours to plan and film on the day although these scenes only appear for a few seconds of film. The shoot went smoothly and we were satisfied with the end result which will appear in the final cut, although we did face a problem when filming shots of the car driving past, as it had to be going at the right speed. This took several takes because the car was often going too fast, and we didn't want to risk reducing the film quality by slowing the footage down. Fortunately we went to a very quiet street during the afternoon at a time of day when it wouldn't be so busy, so we were lucky to get as many takes as we wanted or needed.
