Wight News has been on hold for a while now as the weather has turned for the worse. While the weather was good we managed to get one outdoor scene done but we couldn’t get the last one done in time.
The last one was supposed to be filmed at a football match with friends but we never were able to organize it. Now the weather is wet, cold and windy we have to wait until next year when the weather gets a little better.
The outdoor scene that we managed to get done was a very tedious but a good laugh. We filmed it at a friend’s balcony/garden thing at their house while they were on holiday. For the scene we used a handheld microphone for the Anna and Luke while David took on the role of being a sound man. I mounted the main microphone on to the camera for any background noise that we would need.
Hopefully we’ll have this film done by mid 2012.
‘Wight News’ will be a comedy news sketch set where we live on the Isle of Wight. We’ve been working on the studio scenes, which are done and look pretty good. Only 2 more main scenes now have to be done now – the weather and the sports which I’m in! There will be little mini scenes as well that will be used as footage for the news headlines.
For the studio scenes, I had Luke and David sitting at their anchor desk with their ‘papers’ and laptops, with the Rode Stereo Videomic above them on a stand connected to a portable audio device. This mean’t I needed the clapperboard so I could sync the footage with the audio. The scene was lit by two halogen lights on separate stands pointed up on to the ceiling. The ceiling acted as a deflector and gave a nice soft light on to the ‘anchormen’.
We filmed over 1 and a half hours worth of footage for only 5 mins worth of scenes!
