Typography Exercise #1
movie poster #2
Book cover finale, w/front and back close ups.x
Presented idea for film. Decided to write the narrative about a kung-fu paraody starting with an arguement between two people.
I decided to mock and satire kung fu films from the 70s, using my film as an explotation of these themes and genre.
I began to plan my film, I wrote a script and drew a vauge storyboard to create a paradigm for my film. I knew that most of the ideas and plot would be improvised during filming, so I didn’t spend to much time on this.

Started planning film. Recruited actors ‘Alex Arrowsmith’ and crew member ‘Harriet Clugston’.
20th December 2013
Sourced music and design for my film. I created a draft for my poster (http://24.media.tumblr.com/ebf3a99fe48186dd96dfaeab8f992e20/tumblr_mzvo0acd5i1skipago1_1280.jpg). I used these as a good brainstorm for how I wanted my film to look. I sat and listened to a lot of peroid music from when these films were made, 1970’s funk/disco scene. I settled on Issac Hayes.
3rd January 2014
I began to film the first scene as a draft, to see what it would come out like. Because I wanted a lot of this film to be improvised and feel it out with the people involved I decided to film in chronological order. Filming went well.
After a small break, we were ready to film. Got the first scene done with Alex. Happened in first take. Well happy with it.
rough works for my book cover project yo!
