Abbington park Park Location Report For the storyline of the video some of the filming is going to be shot in Abington park, Northampton. Abington Park is located at postcode NN3 3HN.  http://www.northampton.gov.uk/abingtonpark  is approximately 250,000 square metres (500m x 500m).  The outdoor filming will take place in an area approximately 10m x10m with plenty of room to put up equipment such as tripods, in a position with a pond in the background and near trees.  Depending on the amount of equipment we have to carry and how heavy the equipment we might need to use a suitcase or trolley on wheels to carry the equipment to where we will be filming. We need to worry about people wanting to walk where we are filming.  If we choose carefully locations that are far enough away from footpaths we should not inconvenience other users of the park. The lighting we hope to use natural daylight.  The cameras used will automatically adjust  to the light conditions available.  We might take some sheets of white card to act as reflectors when filming the actors faces to reduce shadows and to naturally illuminate the face of the actors. We do not believe we need permission to film in Abington Park, especially as we only want to film our actors, not any other members of the public. The Park stays open from 9:00 to 5:00pm.  The times we want to avoid filming is not earlier than 9:30 am because of the pedestrian and road traffic with people returning from dropping children off from school and the last of the morning rush hour.  We want to finish filming no later than 3:00pm because the light will start to fade, the pedestrian and road traffic noise will be starting to build up.

Scotts bedroom 

the location of the bedroom is in 49 Drywell court Standens Barn nn3 9tp the. the size of the area that we will be using to film will be difficult to film as the area is smaller than required. there will be other students in the area filming and acting for the video. the lighting for the video will be natural lighting because we will be filming round about mid day so the natural light will be at its brightest. the busiest time to film will not affect the video recording because you won’t have people coming in and out the room at variance times of the day. there no access issues because we will have keys to the house so we can get in easily with out causing any disruptions.
