I've never performed a duologue for camera before so this experience was totally new. me and Brandon when we had originally got the script had made notes on almost every line about the kind of camera angels and shots we wanted to use. however on the day we realise we were perhaps a bit ambitious with all of these shots that we hadn't had experience doing before so we chose to just do a normal front camera and an over the shoulder shot for a few lines to catch my reaction to a few lines we both agreed had an impact. "The camera wants to see the full range and reach of your physicality" I think this quote is very true which is why we decided on very basic and wide angles.

Whilst filming it was easy for me to act for camera. I think I can switch between the two acting styles pretty easy due to the fact that I've acted for both before. I got into the swing of my lines and character and I really tried to portray all of the heighted and loud emotions without being to big (as if I was on the stage)

overall this experience was a good one to have and I'm proud of my final product, I remembered all my lines and really got into my character.
