Begin

 


W

hat to do

Film any interesting / fantasy sequence you like but you must say to camera, “Begin” and another version saying “Begin the journey.”

 

 

Where will this be used?

It will feature in one of our, ‘Begin the journey’ trailers.

 

Versions

You can record different versions. You can be angry, sexy or mysterious, in fact anything that takes your fancy.

 

You can include your friends, workmates and family but do try to get one of just you doing it alone, (don’t take that the wrong way).

 

You can dress up, get into cosplay outfits, wear fantasy make-up or just be yourself. (Don’t wear anything that infringes copyright, so no wearing your Spidy outfit even though you love to wear it and look good in webs).

 

You can dance. You can sing. You can be deadly serious. Try to create at least one version that is quite serious.

 

Do I have to be a professional actor or presenter?

Nope.  We want you, being you, being more than you, having fun with it, giving it your all.

 

I’m a professional. I’m not sure my agent will approve of me mixing it up with fans

Tell your agent to deal with it. This is the new frontier. These are your worldwide fans and they are a force to be reckoned with. Love the team and the team will love you. Manage your own career. Take action. Call the shots.

 

Technical stuff

Avoid wearing glasses.

Leave a five second gap between the two phrases.

You can shoot this on your IPAD, a RED, a CANON 5D, in fact any camera or tablet that can generate a hi-def 1280 x 720 output.

 

What the FARNARKLE is a 1280 x 720 output?

Not sure what a 1280 x 720 output is or how to get it? No problem. Contact me, Nathan Macdonald of FATBOY FILMS with your questions. I love questions.

Some important considerations for your shoot

  • You can make a few versions
  • Leave a 5 second gap between, ‘Begin’ and ‘Begin the journey’
  • Have as much fun as you want but try create one version of, ‘Begin the journey’ that is more serious
  • If using a tablet, ensure it’s horizontal, NOT vertical
  • Make sure we can see and hear you
  • Ensure the camera is steady, (that is unless you have a cameraman with a really cool idea)
  • Avoid background noises such as planes, trains, cars, children, (unless they are part of your plan)
  • Avoid echo. Shooting in a monastery looks great but….
