I am wanting the film to be an ammeter, rough feeling with the real material. This can be archived though “hand held” filming. This gives the viewer an opportunity to experience real life feel to the story line, I think that people will enjoy and get into it if they are able to relate to it, and by filming this way this can be archived. A number of modern films have tried this idea and they have been really successful i.e. Cloverfield, which is based on an “end of the world” storyline in New York, very much like Godzilla. This film is completely film with a hand held camera. This makes concept of filming completely different. It was the first time that a large filming production company to back an idea like this, a number of leading people in the filming industry have raised negative opinions about this because they said if the idea “catched” on then it would ruin whole filming industry because lots of small filming company’s would be able to for the first time make “well Know” successful films and this would pull done the professional filming companies as a whole.
We as a group have gone into great detail about this idea and fallowing this genre we all thought it was a good idea, however I think that if there is too much hand held filming, it will make the film go too far into the amateur cycle. Consequently we don’t have a big budget and this will have a knock on effect with the being successful. In my opinion Cloverfields was only successful because it at a lot of money throne behind it and they were able to do wonders with the Special effects i.e. building falling down and fire everywhere. We don’t have this, so I have suggested that we do a bit of both (half a trailer with Shaky camerawork, hand held filming and the other half done professionally, old school good quality). This remix should bring in both sides of an audience spectrum and make our film successful and well know. Our policy of using shaky camerawork will suggest unprepared, unrehearsed filming of reality, and can provide a sense of dynamics, immersion, instability or nervousness.
