Today 3 members of our group, James, Ghanshyam & Thomas, went up to London, Southbank, to film our establishing shots of the iconic landmarks. Shooting went well, the weather was perfect and so was the lighting. We managed to film the majority of the shots on our storyboard with relative ease. Some of the shots came out blurry but we made sure that we filmed each shot at least 2/3 times.
There was one issue with the Houses of Parliament show however. We didn't know beforehand that there was construction work on the Houses of Parliament. This meant that we couldn't get the shot we wanted to get originally and meant we had to improvise and change the shot when we got there. We weren't able to find out when this construction was due to be finished so we will have to go back at a later date and re-film the shot regardless. We managed to film in all the locations we wanted to including; the Houses of Parliament, Mi6 building and the River Thames. We also filmed our time lapse shot in Trafalgar Square with relative ease.
