In the film studio
It is fairly safe to film in here. We could trip over any of the wiring, or get electrocuted by any loose wiring. It is suitable to film as we need a place that has a white/black background to film a close-up of the performer singing. It would create an atmosphere of loneliness which it adapts from the song. It contains good power sources and lighting which would prove useful. We will be able to utilise professional equipment. It is a very safe place as we will be under supervision.
In central London
We will be filming one masters on a small narrow side street. This is safe as no cars pass by. It is ideal as it would have low key natural lighting and there will be no risks in filming here.
Another masters would be on an empty road. There could be a few potential risks i.e. any equipment being stolen, not being mindful of a car approaching, but we will be filming here when the road is empty so it shouldn’t be much of a problem. This is ideal as we want to have a masters of the performer walking on a road whilst singing. It could create an impression of him moving away from the person he’s singing about in the song.
We may face sound issues as it is a public place and the noise pollution could affect hearing ability of the performer. The population of people there could also affect filming as members of the public could bump into the performer while we’re filming. The weather conditions may affect filming as well as the equipment isn’t waterproof and if it rains the equipment could be damaged, however we’ll only film if the forecast states it’ll be sunny.
Golden Jubilee Bridges
There is no traffic on this bridge so we won’t have that as an issue. There are however train lines but we’ll keep to walking on the pavements whilst filming. Again since it’s a public bridge, performing could be hindered as again people could be bumping into our performer. As is the same as filming around the London eye, sound could be a problem as well as since it’s a public place it could be quite noisy and we may not be able to hear each other, or our performer may not be able to hear the music he’s meant to be performing to.
