We did some filming at the train station as planned on Friday, however we still did not manage to capture all the shots that we wanted. As the train station was very busy between 7:30 and 8:30am due to it being rush hour, they did not want us to film then due to health and safety reasons. Nevertheless, we were allowed to film a bit later on in the morning and as we had planned our shots much more carefully this time, we managed to capture some successful footage. Also, as we filmed at 9am, the train station was much busier this time than last time; hence there were more people about on the train station platform, helping to create verisimilitude. However, although we did manage to capture some footage we still did not capture all of it, and are going to have to re visit the train station another time to film the rest of that scene. The ghost shot in particular (where Lucas walks towards the train door and Grace, reflecting how he has two options to choose from) is one which we need to capture, and we couldn’t film it on Friday due to the fact there were too many people on the train platform. Furthermore, due to not being able to film at 7:30am, we were unable to film our time lapse shot, so we will have to capture that another time too.
The train station scene has been the only one so far where we have encountered difficulties, probably owing to the fact that the setting is a very public place and there are health and safety risks to consider too. We have not reviewed our footage which we captured on Friday yet, but hopefully it will be of good quality and we will have a large selection of shots to choose from when we come to editing.
