Production Diary - Pins & Needles

We are into the final leg of post production. Jake is working hard on the final edit after a shuffle around and the new addition of a voice over, Pins & Needles is slowly piecing together after a stressful couple of weeks.

A few of our shots have to be re-filmed as soon as possible, hopefully today or tomorrow. Today Sadie and I are trying to push our R&D files to get the completed and ready for submission this Thursday, when hopefully Pins & Needles itself will also be wrapped up and ready to show the world.

Today we’re off out to shoot out interview at Pete Who Tattoos, I’ve just completed putting together my appearence release forms and my location release forms to be signed.

We’ll be shooting on two Canon 60D cameras and doing sound on our Tascam.

Earlier in the week we headed out to the Chesterfield market in search of people who are not tattooed to gather some footage of the opposing opinion. Jake is already well underway editing what we have so far, the market footage and the filler footage we previously shot with Sasha at the studio and it’s coming together beautifully!

We have booked the studio for the 1st and 8th or March and we are currently booking models and friends of ours to discuss why tattooing should be considered an art and why it needs to cease being shunned.

I’ll keep you posted on progress! Hopefully I’ll get a few pictures to share today!

We're all aware of the lack of female presence in horror, read this article.

This Wednesday I went to see speak to Pete “Who” Tattoo and discuss my ideas the process we’d be going through during our interviews and whilst the crew and I were filming. He’s really enthused about the idea and excited to work with Sadie, Jake and I. He’s also recommended friends of his who are also happy to be interviewed and filmed.

I had a good look around the studio and this Wednesday I will risk assess, recce and get my permissions from Pete. I also booked in for a sneaky tattoo! So it would be brilliant if I could take Sadie and Jake along to film the process, it’s make for a great credits sequence.

After spending a grand total of five hours faffing around with converting files and finding footage we thought were lost forever, Sasha and myself have almost completed getting all our footage together ready for editing the Pregnant Pause video we’re putting together. Thought I did take a nice picture of our editing keyboards…

So when I got home, with a head ache from staring at a screen for too long, it turns out the father is back from home and it’s time to get some food shopping in whilst I can, so I went along. Why is it, that middle aged mothers have to browse the full supermarket, as oppose to simply pick up what they need? By the time we had finished it was pushing 9PM! So in my dreadful and defeated food I gave in to my lover, bad food.

Looks beautiful, no? KFC is like that man or woman that you always want but know you shouldn’t have because no good will come from it.
I get home, my younger brother has kindly put my little one to bed and she’s sleeping like an angel and I’m faced with washing and ironing that needs doing, a shower that needs to be had, clothes and food and other such prepared for Dallas for tomorrow so this is another night I’ve not done any work.
Tomorrow, HOPEFULLY, I’ll be in college all afternoon doing some personal work whilst I have chance and I’ll be glancing over this shoulder to see how Pregnant Pause is coming along.

This is a little general college work and personal post haha. I really really need to get some kip, so I’m going to get myself in bed and do a sleep.
