From our idea we initially thought of filming in a few places that represent isolation, a few places that represent confinement and then the a series of locations showing the actor leaving his house and arriving at a bridge.
Our first brain storm brought up the following places
- Joel's House
- The Street outside Joel's house
- Otley Bridge
- A series of locations within Joel's House such as under his stairs and under the covers on his bed.
- Ilkley Moor
- Malham Cove
- Leeds Carpark
- Bluebell woods
We narrowed the locations down only slightly in the end by removing Ilkley Moor.
Joel's Bed - Joel's House - Burley
This location will be used for some of the confiement shots, we intend on having Joel under the bed sheets panicing and then they will be a shot of him bursting up from under the sheets, this shot will be linked with a similar shot at one of the locations.
Joel's Cupboard - Joel's House - Burley
The cupboard will be used for the same purpose as the bed but in a different location.
Street - Burley
The street will be used for the shot of Joel leaving his house as well as walking down the sheet, the camera will follow him and then they will be a upward shot of the telephone lines.
Bridge - Otley
The shots at the Bridge will be the opening and closing scene, its a iconic location for us because it emulates the location used in the Greatest Hits album art. It will feature shots of the cars going past and the distance behind the bridge.
Bluebell Woods -Ilkley
Bluebell Woods is probably our most puzzling location, it is meant to represent the mix between confinement of the trees and the isolation of being on your own in the middle of nowhere. We intend of using snorri cam shots here as well as some long shots.
Car park - Leeds
The car park in Leeds is very similar to the woods location minus the idea of confinement, its a very isolated open area. We intend of doing the same shots as we did in the woods here as well as get a few shots of the trains in the background.
Malham Cove - Malham
Malham Cove location is meant to be a contrast to the industrial nature of a lot of the other scenes, its a very scenic location with great view which will be the perfect backdrop for some shots.
