The Clip Club

Primary after-school club in East London, UK – we watch, talk about, shoot and edit short films and clips

Reflection on last week and draft storyline

Nimbus is back!! We are very pleased to say that Nimbus has been relieved of SATS booster classes and we all welcome him back to the club. As last week was a bit of a shambles… we discuss that and then read the last post describing the things that went wrong. We all decide that working in this way simply won’t do … Some mention that people had been too hyper, distracted, impatient, wandering off, that there wasn’t enough structure and planning. The whole effort to seemed lack teamwork and a sense of independence and needed a new focussed and determined mindset.

We go through a proposed storyline that Michelle had knocked together from various ideas that had been suggested thus far. See below. It could all change but two groups go off with a shot list and get on with shooting by themselves with ipads. We ditch the camcorder and the tripod. And teamwork seems to have been restored.

We’re limited by what shots we’re able to film because Clara hasn’t got the right dress on in terms of continuity…. She will bring it next week. One group films empty corridors and the playground – these are clips to set the scene and start the film. The other group films Duel 2 leaving the library and then pretending to run away from the Clone. Interestingly they decide to film the same scene simultaneously from a different angle – with another ipad.

Please be thinking how we can end this sequel!
