We will not be using people as actors but instead a yam, patato, squash, kumara and a worm. We will move and make the the vegetables talk with our hands and using a green screan, animating the class room on the computers in later. It is comedy style and will be slightly poorly made to add to this. The film is going fairly short because there is limited dialogue and we dont want it to drag on and become boring.
So far we have yet to make any changes to the story board, but we have to the way that we will actually producde the short film. We originally planned on take a sequnce of photo frames to make them talk, we now are just going to use a green screan and edit in the class room later.
The key audience that we will aim to be targeting is males and females aged 14-18 roughly, even though it may seem like a semi childesh story line the humour and scenario will be set for a teenage audince and they should be able to relate. It should be rather humorous to teenagers
The character that i have chose to analyse in episode number 8 (Out of gas) is captain Malcom Reynolds played by Nathan Fillion, he is the captain of the space ship Serenity and one of the most important characters of the television show in my opinion. At the start of this episode captain Malcom Reynolds suffers quite a bad wound to his stomach causing him to loose a fair amount of blood, he is lying on the floor of the cargo room while they use a large range of camera shots to show his pain and near loss off consciousness, this is when the episode changes slightly now going to a series of flash blacks and flash forwards. When the flash backs start i feel that the setting of inside the lonely space ship serenity is fairly important to get the feeling of his loneliness and despair at this time. In this episode the director (David Solomen) used a series of flash forwards and flash backs to show a more kind of longer story of how the crew came together in a much shorter amount of time so he used flash forwards/flash backs to display this. I personally thought that it worked quite well to display this. The episode closes with, the most remote flashback, in which Malcom Reynolds is still contemplating which ship to buy. The used-vehicle salesman says “You buy this ship, treat her proper, she’ll be with you the rest of your life… Son. Hey, son, you hear a word I been saying?” Malcom has not, he has turned his back on the salesman and the flashy yellow rocket-like vehicle he is trying to sell, and is staring instead at the final and most important member of his crew the broken-down Firefly-class transport, abandoned at the edge of the lot…
