An actor/s may forget their costume.
We may disagree on decisions on how to produce our film.
We may not be able to find a roof that we can throw a brick off.
The dog might not to what it is told and make it difficult for filming.
We may not be able to get our actors out of school for filming.
The strategies I will try to overcome the Weaknesses and Threats from the SWOT analysis that may be obstacles to my production process are that we will have to film scenes inside if the weather is bad (rainy), if we have to change something for filming because it is too difficult or something goes wrong, we will have to update our concept so that it matches. We will have to make sure everyone turns up on time when we are filming, if they are sick or have a reasonably good excuse, we can do nothing about that and will have to work around it i.e if an actor is missing we will film another scene, if the director is missing, the rest of the group will have to step up and become the director for the day. At the end of the day, if we can’t decide on something, it comes down to the director, they are in charge of the whole film, however, if it has something to do with editing, then the editor has the final say and the same goes with the camera person. If we cannot get our actors out of school for a certain amount of time, then we will have to look for knew actors or another time to film. We will have to plan our time wisely to ensure we get everything done on time, we have to be organised and make sure we are on target each lesson. It is very simple to use the editing program, Chevelle can use it and can teach the others as well, if we get stuck we can ask other people in the class or the teacher for help. We will be shown how to use the camera and tripod properly.
The film is doable if we plan our time wisely and are organised. Some of it may be quite hard to film e.g. if the dog does not do what it is ment to. But we are able to accomplish this as we can use treats and the owner will be with us to guide the dog. We will keep trying till we get it right and we can even keep filming the dog untill we get our desired footage.
The actors will provide their own costumes, as they are just wearing everyday clothes. The only props we need is a dog and a brick. We will be provided with a friends dog that we can use and we can access a brick from home, or we can ask the groundsman at school, if we have to we can always buy one form Bunnings.
All our shots are quite basic. E.g. tracking shot, close up, high shot, low shots, so we ar eable to complete these.
