direction

Monday 13th July 2009

The Director is most definitely David from the trio. Mr D V C himself (see links page!) After some discussion with the trio, David draws out the storyboards and a shooting schedule, and on the day of filming makes things work to plan. Well almost. A difficult job - there've been occasional mistakes and forgotten shots, or time has pressured us, but then these things affect all directors and David has always kept things rolling along.

Scenes often have to be shot with the effects in mind - for example in the control room (shewn above with David directing) the central column was to be replaced with an effect...

 

The shot above is not the final effect but it helps us think ahead. David's job on filming days is to keep this sort of thing in mind whilst ensuring the actors and everyone else stay focussed...
Here's a typical storyboard...
And below here's David directing Tony for a gantry scene...
