    For pre-production so far, my group and I have finished our proposal and treatment. Right now, we are working on our script and soon we will be working on our shot list. I am the cinematographer, Nadine is the director, Aaliyah is the script writer, and Isaac is the Editor and Sound Designer. Our short film will be about speed dating. Instead of having a usual, boy and girl relationship, we figured that we would twist it around a little, so we decided to have a girl and girl relationship (bisexuals). Basically, the girls break up in the beggining because Crystal (Me) cheats on Amber (Nadine). Then Crystal finds a newspaper add on speed dating and decides to go to it so she has her options open. During the speed dating she finds someone who she relates to and whom she can see herself happy with, when the blindfold comes off, she finds out that it was Amber the whole time. 

    My film group is very productive. We actually collaborate and give one another ideas. We can communicate effectively and work well together. I believe, at this point, that our film will come out great.

    Speed dating

    When people search high and low for their significant other without any help, often times they can not. Thus, turning to the term that has been going on for what seems like a long time, speed dating. According to google, speed dating is an organized social activity in which people seeking romantic relationships have a series of short conversations with potential partners in order to determine whether there is a mutual interest. 

    This topic interested me because there are many relationships that do not last in society now-a-days. Also, I’ve been very curious to know if when speed dating, the two people foreshadows what their lives will be before they make their decision whether or not they want to be with the person in front of them. 

    The target audience of my film is adolescents and adults. These two group ages are those who start to date or have been through relationships in the past. Basically, these two groups have experience with the film’s purpose. 

    In my film I will have multiple people acting for me as the speed daters. Basically all these actors/actresses have to do is move from seat to seat and meet up with a different person every 1 minute. While they are doing this, I will be on one person the whole time. I will be showing what this one person foreshadows for their future as they move from person to person. In the end of the film, the person that they chose to be their other half will turn out to not be the person they thought they were. 

    The purpose for this film is to make sure it is what you want before you grab it.
