As Georgie was not available for this shoot, we decided to get mid shots and close ups of the DJs with Gavin and Eugene.
We allowed ourselves a lot of time to set up as this was our first time setting up for the performance scene. As we expected, it took a long time to hang up the giant playing cards and get the lights in the right position. This is because we had three people and five cards to spotlight, and before hanging the cards the technician had to attach wires to the lighting rigs for us. We also had to stick the cards to the DJ desks, arrange the equipment on top, and move them into position. However, when we had finished creating the set we were very pleased with the result.
We took several photos of our set up to make sure that we get the cards and the desks in the right place next time we shoot performance scenes.
The boys were easy to prepare for screen, as they only needed to put on their costumes and apply minimal make-up (foundation, powder, darkened eyebrows), which we did for them. Once they were ready, we played our song on the speakers and got them to practice acting like a DJ to get them in to character and feeling enthusiastic.
However, we felt that Gavin and Eugene played their roles well and in this respect, the shoot was a success.
