Filming Sample Scene - Plan

Today we are going to plan our sample scene and filming schedule, we would have preferred to have filmed over the weekend, however to due work commitments and difficulties finding free cast members we had to push filming the scene back to today. We have sat down and planned our idea and decided on the scene we are going to film for our sample, we have decided to film what we would like to be the first scene of our music video consisting between the timings of  0:15 to approximately 1:00. 
Our scene is going to focus on the lead member of  our band, memorising on his past relationship with a girl, so we are also going to try and film some flashbacks to go in the scene. 

The locations we will hopefully be using consist of the park in Ilkley and a house. 
We will be filming these scenes in order to help us experiment with the black and white effect to see if this effect would work all the way through or just when signifying flashbacks to the audience. As we are filming after school we could have some issues with lighting outside with the nights becoming darker earlier , so if this happens we may just have to film the scene in a different location inside for the flashback.

MA- Ideas for Cast

We have decided that we want to have a 4-man boy band even though originally NSYNC were a 5-piece. For the narrative side of the video we want to use a boy and girl.

For the boys we want them to be around our age, this is mainly because they are the easiest age group for us to get hold of whilst the age of the original NSYNC was 20-30 at the time of the video they all looked pretty young.
For the narrative we want to use the lead member of the band as the 'boyfriend'. One idea we have is to use my brother and his real life girlfriend as 'boyfriend' and 'girlfriend'.

Tyrone and Bronte
For the boyband cast we want to use my brother and 2 additional members, we have had some ideas of this but non have been confirmed so far.
