The crew came down to our beach location at Lee Point once again, this time to film the start of the band scenes with Sam Korn and do a few small tidy up tasks by shooting one of Maddison's walking shots at 50fps so we could get some proper slow motion happening on it for the final.

The singing scenes, of course involve lip synching to the actual track that will be used for the video so the easiest thing to do is shoot them all at standard framerate (in this case 25fps) with the music playing on a digital device.  Luckily this can all be done on a budget of next to nothing, well, technically nothing if you already have the gear and don't count the minute amount of electricity required to charge a portable MP3 player and speaker system.

The complete simplicity and portability of the system is beautiful.  All it takes is someone to hold the speakers and player with a free hand so that the singer can hear it and later we can synchronise the video tracks manually with any marker or even just by eye to the audio.  It may not be overly high tech, and I imagine it would quite possibly be laughed at by a pro sound engineer, but for our purposes it is more than adequate and was tried and tested with great results on the demo we shot before principal photography actually started.

The X-10 rig is off to a promising start but it still needs some tweaks to help dampen the camera movement more before our next day of filming,  we will be taking any spare time opportunity to adjust and tension the setup till we get it better!

We had Ben Gannon join the crew today to help out with a bit of lighting and gear carrying, he has probably gone away with doubts in his mind about the reliability of some of our equipment. After nearly a full 20 minutes of wrestling with one of our bigger reflectors with the help of our DOP they still had not succeeded in getting the beast back into its cage! Admittedly I have my moments trying to wrangle them back in sometimes also. Today my excuse was I had my hands full with the Glidecam rig, hope they believed me!

A big thanks to our friend Jess Lai who jumped right in to do our BTS camera work for the set, there's some great material in there for the BTS compilation.
