Day 48: Shot List Work: On the Tents!

Today I keep working on the shot list. What’s sort-of-a-challenge is figuring out how to shoot the tent scenes. I don’t know how big the tents are going to be: the bigger they are, the easier it is to get different kinds of shots but the more unrealistic it is. On the other hand, the smaller they are then the more difficult it is to get shots but the more realistic it is. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing: I could easily use a small tent and the limited camera angles in an attempt to create tension by how confined the characters are. It’s a trade-off and ultimately the shot list will have to be modified based on how large the tents are. Which also depends on the budget and the money we spend on them.
