4D-(Assignment 3) Final 4D Project- Make A Film Trailer- “RE_________”

TRAILER:

https://vimeo.com/192417398

It starts off with Kevin waking up in the hospital. This is the exposition shot for the entire trailer; the present, where Kevin was in a comatose for the past two years. His parents were happy that he was awake.

However, through checks with the nurse, she deduced that Kevin could not remember anything before two years ago. As he continues to survey where he was, he drifted off to sleep.

He was awoken by a flick on the face by his girlfriend, Ariel. Confused, he went off with her, after being told that they would be celebrating his 21st together. Still unaware of what was going on, they continued their date. Ariel handed him his present hidden in his wallet, telling him to open it when he gets back home.

The realisation Kevin happens when he drops his wallet, that he has lived through this timeline before. However, he doesn’t seem to know the tragedy that would happen. With snippets of him realising the tragedy, he wakes up, calling Ariel’s name. It ends of with him forcing himself to sleep, trying to get back to the past.

Outline: A guy who woke up from a two-year coma, with no memory of what caused him to land in his demise, finds himself being able to travel to and fro from his past when he sleeps.

Going back in time to find out what happened to him.

STORY SYNOPSIS:

This story revolves around a guy who just woken up from two-year coma, with no recollection of what happened before he landed in the hospital. However, he soon was transported back into the past, specifically his 21st birthday, as soon as he falls asleep in the hospital bed.

CHALLENGES:

The biggest challenge we face is to find cast. Firstly we try really hard not to find friends in adm because many of them have assignment to rush and we felt really bad about it. Secondly, it is exam period soon:) Next would be location and props, we have quite a huge amount of hospital scene in our trailer, so we had to really think of where to film and where to get the props:) Initially,  we wanted to “kop” the changing curtains the models used from our foundation drawing classroom, or even filming inside the classroom, but there are classes going on and matching the cast time and the classtime and our time everything just don’t match sometime. But it’s ok! we have Hui Min’s hall who actually legit look like TTS Hospital C Class after setting up! and with her “Sor Da Pia” and tupperware everything make sense! haha:) In terms of technical aspect, time constrain was the bigger issue for us, because even though we might have our time nicely plan on when to film and where to film, we have to really take note of the cast time and how to plan our filming progress according to the best time to suits everyone. As well as having all the other assignment pilling up, it is even harder for us to cope with filming editing and meeting up for discussion! Hence, Skype became our best friend!

Something I’m super proud off

The amazing Schedule we created for the filming day! OH MY GOD!:)

FINAL THOUGHTS:

whatsapp-image-2016-11-12-at-3-10-16-am

Thanks to this two girl I really had a wonderful time doing this project. I am relatively new to film, to film editing software to camera and many more. Instead of being irritated with my lack of knowledge in film, two of them didn’t hesitate to guide me along and they taught me many many new things. Like what log sheet is, how to write the log sheet. And how the film industry works. I felt really bad of not been able to give useful suggestion in how to make the trailer better, but both of them took my advice and think through it, which I really really appreciate. Despite how tired we are, we just try our very best to wake each other up to discuss through skype and to jot everything down nicely! All the sinful breakfast we have, mac, xiao long bao. GOSH! But I’m super super proud of the group! Also! I am really grateful for the cast members help! despite having assignment to cope as well as upcoming exams, they still agree to help us and were so on point on acting! Overall, I am really happy of what we have produce and I believe all our hardwork paid off! Love you girls!!!!
