The main things that I need to plan for my film are the locations and my timing, so choosing the best time for when I can film my movie. I need to film it when the college is empty and quiet. This is going to be so that I won’t get interrupted and so that I can film the areas I want to film and not get anybody in the shot.
The plans for the voice over came from the types of tv shows and movies I watch. I believe that the Voice Over can be an even better way to tell a story then using actors.
Finding my voice actor was actually an easy thing to do as I asked the male members of the class if one of them wouldn’t mind doing it. Then Jack came over and asked if he could read for the role, I auditioned him and then we went into the A/V room and recorded.
The voice over is as follows,
So I guess I need to tell you what happened? The honest answer is, I haven't got a clue. I came in, just for the day. But now I'm stuck here. They were meant to be here. I tried looking. I search d and I searched. But they were gone. No-one else was here. It took me a while to realize something, I came in a visitor. But now I'm trapped here a prisoner."
We recorded the voice over in three different emotions, each take more emotive then the last.
The idea for a voice over came from the types of TV shows and Movies that I watch. I’m a huge fan of the voice over and think it’s a great way of telling a story. Television shows such as Grey’s Anatomy, Everybody Hates Chris, Desperate Housewives use this as a way to advance the story, while the TV series Criminal Minds use this to use quotes to sum up what has happened in the episode.
Here are a few examples of voice overs being used in shows.
GREY’S ANATOMY – voice over, being provided by the main character, Meredith Grey as portrayed by Ellen Pompeo.

CRIMINAL MINDS – a quote that sums up what’s happened in the episode, provided by main character, Arron Hotchner as portrayed by Thomas Gibson.

And the last example is the voice over from the hit series, Law and Order:

As well as using a voice over to dedicate episodes to people.
