Day 4 - The second day of filming covers the second section of the day; from lunch until the evening. As the process of filming is time-consuming, it might be necessary to film the whole day.

Day 5 -  An extra filming day, if needed. 

 

EDITING

At this stage I will return home and edit the video we filmed into a short film, between 5 and 10 minutes long, which is basically like a day in your life.

 

VOICE OVER

When the film is ready, I will return and show it to you. You will then be asked to describe what is happening in the film, as you are it, which I will record. You can have as many attempts as you need to record the voice-over as it might be difficult to recall all the information the first time through the film. If you are not happy with the film, for example if you feel it is not accurate, or you do not want something that was filmed to be seen by other people, the I will re-edit it

A DAY

(Working method for producing participatory moving image portraits)

 

FILMING

Day 1 – On this day you will be asked to keep a diary describing what happens during that particular day. There is no right or wrong answer and it is your decision what you want to write down. I will not be with you and nothing will be filmed.

Day 2 – The next day, I will meet with you and discuss what you have written down the previous day. The diary will be used to plan a film about the day the diary was written. Over the following two days, you will then be asked to act out that day, to act in a film about yourself.

Day 2 - In order to plan this day, we will design a 'storyboard' together and sketch out how the film will be made. For example, which locations will be used for filming, in these locations, where the camera will be and where you will be, etc.

Day 3 - On the first day of filming we will start to film in the early morning, and film the first section of the day; what happened before lunch. The storyboard designed the day before will make it clear what needs to be filmed.
