Here are some test shots we did in the woods for our film opening - The Promise.
The shots we did are in the following order;
- Establishing shot of the setting
- Tracking shot to show the little girl starting to walk further away from the mother and playing
- The girl is seen being happy ad playing whilst hiding behind a tree from her mother
- Establishing shot/Point of view shot of the mother showing the girl has gone
- Girl backing fearfully into a tree
- Handheld shot of the mother walking towards the coat (we have decided that when filming the real thing, we will also use a wide shot to show that it is the mother walking towards the coat to be clear to the audience.
