Change of tack

After reviewing my footage of the town development so far it fails in the following ways:

1) images are not as steady as I thought – some shots are OK – should have used a tripod
2) not much is happening in them – it will not make an exciting film unless you like diggers
3) it is not a time lapse film as I have got different footage from different angles
4) no flow or purpose to the footage – I need to think about the overall purpose of the film

A change in tack and focus is needed and this is what I have done so far…

1) purchased a steady cam rig for my cameras to make the shots smooth and to take a portable tripod/monopod with me next time
2) emailed Bicester council to see if I need a permit to film interviews in the town centre and to see if I can interview some councillors
3) emailed Bicester Local History Society for information and to see if I can interview some of the members
4) emailed my cousin (who is in the film business) for advice and inspiration
