Ancillary Tasks

To reveal the process of creating and developing our ancillary tasks - poster and magazine review, we overlayed a narration of all 3 members in the group and imported pictures to match our narration.  We filmed ourselves speaking then imported the video to Adobe Premier Pro where we unlinked the audio and video, deleted the video line and embedded the imported pictures into the sequence.

Storyboard Animatic

After we created a shooting script we decided to create a storyboard (despite our artistic failings) to visually represent the shots we hope to achieve in our film. We then took photos of the individual storyboard pictures and uploaded them to the computer. Then using 'Adobe Premier Pro' we put all the photos into an animatic then downloaded non-copyright music from 'freesounds.com'. We decided to use harmonica and electric guitar style blues music as it is typical of the gambling genre and something we may wish to use in our actual film.

Film Name - 'Face Down'

After much deliberation we have decided upon our poker film's title as 'Face Down'. This has dual meaning as it combines the meta language of Texas Hold-em Poker with the cards being deal 'face down'. Additionally, the term 'face down' can connote being miserable and your luck running out which echoes the themes we wish to express in our film. Also when your face is down you are avoiding conflict and around the poker table Sean (main character) will be inexperienced and most likely reflect the title in his facial expressions.
