Final Update 05/02/2012
 
It has been a long time since I have posted any thing on here. But since my last post we have now finally finished our video and coursework. Our final video can be seen on our homepage and also on the Film page under Planning. It has been a great  experience creating this product and we are all very happy with the final out come. We had a few problems along the way but we got there in the end. I would just like to say thank you to everyone who has helped us along the way and throughout the
 
Been a while 03/27/2012
 
Its been a while since my last post and a lot had happened.
The other week we filmed and edited the 10 second fight scene along with some stylistic footage to fill in some gaps. 
Last week we filmed Holly and Conor again to finish off the intro/prescene along with adding in extra shots to incorporate a flashback argument between the two.
The ancillary texts i.e. the artwork, consisting of the Digipak and the magazine advert are not all complete and uploaded to our ancillary texts page.
The music video itself is  now pretty much completed, perhaps a couple of tweaks here and there to finish it off.
The evaluations have all been written and the evaluative films/voice overs are underway.

Looks like we are on track and managing time well. 
Nearly there now!
 
Nearly there 03/20/2012
 
So we filmed some shots on thursday to fill in the gaps. We are not just refining and tweaking parts of the film in editing. The evaluations are underway and so we are now nearly finished. 
 
Weebly Update 02/29/2012
 
Okay so after some feedback from my teacher about the website I have been updating it, adding information about analysis of other products, more in depth discussions about what we have done and some extra research into the artist. I've also transferred most of the info from our powerpoint which we did originally for the planning before we decided to make this website for it, so now all our planning is dependent on our Weebly.
We will also be adding a rough cut of the ending of the film.
 
Bar Scene Done 02/18/2012
 
So on Thursday we all went to the rugby club to use the bar for filming. Thanks to Richard Cebreiro for letting us use it. The filming went well we got there about 11 and and finished up around 4. Was very productive and the footage looks great. Thanks to our extras: JJ, Ben and Ryan also Amy and Beth. 
 
Ready To Go 02/15/2012
 
Today Sean and I went to the Purley John Fisher Rugby football club to do a recce for tomorrows scheduled filming. The bar looks great and seems like a perfect place for the scene. The only problem was on of the shutters on the bar was stuck but hopefully we'll get that sorted for tomorrows filming. 
 
Progress 02/14/2012
 
Hi its Mark, today I have been updating the website with the additions of some of the print work we have done. The Front cover of the digipak is pretty much complete along with the magazine advert. The back cover is almost finish and the inside panels are a work in progress.
In terms of filming we had planned to film today but due problems organising location this has changes to thursday and this will be to film the bar scene in the film. 
 
Bad luck 02/06/2012
 
Unfortunately, we have been unable to film today due to heavy snow over the weekend. We had originally planned a weekly filming schedule in which we organised the production of different scenes including cast, location and props. However, weather conditions has delayed our plans as we had planned to film an exterior outdoors scene which has been ruined by snow. 
For now, we're getting minor tasks finished in anticipation for our next possibility of filming. 
 
Printwork 01/18/2012
 
Recently we have discussed and developed our ideas for the album cover of Stay Too Long, with each member of the team providing a different concept for the album and drawing their design. The most popular design was my idea of having the back of our protagonists head, with a bar code imprinted on his neck to represent the commercialisation and subsequent de-humanisational consequences of his fame. 
 
 
We are currently evaluating our planning such as our Microsoft Powerpoint presentation and indeed, our Weebly site for marking by Mr O'Brien. After this we need to develop our album digi-pack cover ideas as well as planning a schedule for filming later this week and next week.
