12/03/12 - Today we edited our new footage. prier to this we had to re film our classroom scene. but we found that we had to re film our dream scene as well because it was shot outside on two different days where the weather was sunny on one day and cloudy on the other. we finally decided to film the dream indoors to cancel out making this mistake again.

06/03/12 - today we continued with the editing of the class room scene. We came across some technical difficulties as the computers in the background were flashing constantly and it was taking effect away from the acting.

This is a nike basketball advertisement and one of our inspirations for are title sequence as it is a montage.

02/03/12 - Today we recorded the rest of our footage. this was the dream scene where i was filmed taking an array of basketball shots from different angles. We got a lot of good footage but also a lot of bad footage that we will have to discard. But overall we have enough good footage to finish off our project.  
29/02/12 - Today we worked on the draft sketches for the titles. We thought doing all of the titles in orange would be sensible as orange would be affiliated with basketball.
27/02/12 - Today me and george looked back at the clips to see if we need more footage for the classroom scene. also jake worked on the call sheet this helped us distinguish how much time scenes took up.

9/2/12 - Today we finished typing up our 25 Word pitch, Mood Board and folly and sound research.

8/2/12 - Today me and george went out to take pictures for our location recce and risk assessment. we took pictures of an outdoor basketball court an indoor basketball court and a class room as these are the places we plan on filming in. unfortunately it was snowing we considered this when we made our risk assessment as me and George were slipping trying to taking pictures so playing basketball on a day like that would be foolish.

This is a video of Michael Jordan one of the greatest ever basketball players on earth and more importantly one of Poor Little Daniel's hero's. 

This link is one of the inspirations for Poor Little Daniel my title sequence task. Poor Little Daniel is an underdog story and in my opinion the Rocky series and this scene particularly portray that theme the best. Also this montage sequence is much like the one i would like to create for my  for title sequence.
