Filming Our Preliminary Task

We used a CCTV shot to set the scene at the start, consisting of the poker table and players. We then shot the protagonist which was Ashley Firth, looking at his phone. Following this was a close-up of the phone, before filming Ashley departing out of the room. When Ashley left the room, there was a close up of the handle and then filmed him walking down the corridor. After this there were many takes in the toilets, where the drug dealer(Arjan Boyall) stood still as Ashley walked in. The camera then moved to a point of view shot of the dealer looking at me, before the camera angled down to our hands and saw the dealings happened. The clip then concluded with a CCTV shot of the dealer departing out of the toilet, leaving suspense.
