Bag Retro Sketch - The Book
my crew and I didn't have any experience of film as a medium, and
are more experienced with theatre, we decided to approach producing
the sketch using theatrical methods. We decided to make a Book.
Book in theatrical productions is a document kept by the stage manager
that details EVERYTHING you could possibly need to know in order
to put on a show. It includes information on set, cast, rehearsal
dates, costume and also details the script and where people stand
and move to during the various scenes (this is known as "blocking").
the images below to see our Book.
The first image shows the
initial introduction to the characters that I gave them before
the first read through (after they had been given footage of the
show as well) just to set the mood for each character.
The second image shows my
page of things to consider when filming in terms of giving sufficient
time for the special effects, etc.
The third image are notes
to Norma (T. Bag). James (T. Shirt) had some notes as well, but
I haven't included these in the scan for some reason. Actor's
don't really like to get notes as it suggests that they are doing
something wrong. The notes I gave, however, were mostly to do
with performing in front of a camera, though, which none of us
were used to.
This is the camera plot
and final scene breakdown used by the camera.
These are props
used in the sketch.
