Amongst a list of beneficial properties that we were looking for (i.e. being based in or around London) there are two which are absolutely essential - it must be large enough to house our set;
it must be sound proofed due to the film being so dialogue heavy.
Which we end up using remains to be decided however what has been is how long we are there for. In a previous blog I talked about creating a story board which of course gives you a rudimentary shot list.
Michael and I looked over this shot list and guesstimated that the whole shoot should take about three days which we have budgeted for. But you can't rely on guesstimates, so with that in mind we have begun script lining.
"Script lining" is a very appropriate name for a process by which you draw lines all over your script. Their purpose is to mark which sections of the script require which shots.
