Second filming shoot for lip sync

Today we filmed the lip syncing for our music video and our set location was a wooded area just off Burley St. We tried to capture the idea that Dan was passing his time of grief by secluding himself to the wood, so we framed him from different angles singing in different places amongst the trees. It went ok but Alice and I struggled to collaborate camera work with directing Dan, so at times both of us were using cameras (steady cam/free hand/tripod) and we accidently got in eachothers shots, whilst Dan occasionaly struggled with the concepts..

However on the whole we covered everything we think; the only problem was that we had more time to film than we had tape to film with, so before we were ready to stop we were forced too by the technical difficulties of tape and camera battery.

Luckily the weather was on our side and we had no trouble with wind or rain, and we got some great moments when the light shone through the trees creating some great back lighting. The only down side to this was the reflection off the lense, which sometimes limited the visibility of Dan in the Mid close ups.
