Tournage Jour 3

The first group met at a rooftop terrace, which belonged to our main actress’s dad’s workplace and he kindly granted us the possibility to shoot there. The terrace was an amazing location, given that we had a breathtaking view from up high over Berlin.

Team one met at 12 a.m. (so we got to sleep in) and soon after, started filming our two protagonists, Teresa and Charlotte, enjoying themselves and messing around. We used this opportunity to establish their relationship and intimate friendship. That day, we managed to capture some great sensations. We experimented with close-ups of the food we brought along, and filming the wind playing in Teresa’s hair. Of course, we also made use of the great view and ended up with some nice footage of that incredible location. We also played around with the idea of translating that sense of hight into pictures. The rooftop shoot was good fun and we rewarded ourselves with some pizza afterwards!

A couple of people also sat down to look through all the footage we already had, so that we could get an idea of what kind of scenes were still needed in order to tell our story the way we wanted to. Watching what we had already done, also helped to figure out at what places we might need to include some more sensations, seeing as this is the overaching theme.

Another small team walked around down on the street and tried to find some more impressions and sensations.

The second group met up at 4 p.m. at the same location we had already filmed at the previous day (the one with the toilet). After having looked through all of the footage, we knew that we had to shoot a few more scenes there. Hence, the second group tried to capture some more impressions of their surroundings and filmed Teresa leaving the toilet and running out of the club, so that the transition to the next scene outside would be smoother. That day, it didn’t get quite as late as on Friday and we were able to wrap it up at about 7 p.m.

All in all, filming was heaps of fun and we all had a great experience. We especially enjoyed experimenting with what could be done and playing around with the camera and capturing all sorts of different pictures. It was very interesting to see how emotions and sensations could be conveyed through the medium film and we got a lot out of these three days!

Now, we can’t wait to see the final result! Even though, unfortunately, we will probably not be able to present our finished movie in Paris (due to the pandemic), we still hope that you are as excited to finally see all the films of every school as we are! We’re looking forward to it!

Tournage Jour 2

Friday was the second day of shooting. It started at 12 am in the apartment of one of the main actresses. A smaller team worked there together on the first film scenes. The main location was just the kitchen, with the stove playing a special role. After many recordings, cooking mountains of spaghetti and a lot of past time, a good recording was made and we filmed sensory perceptions that were particularly important and striking in this scene. There was a lot of experimentation so that the kitchen was in a mess and looked as if it had been turned upside down. There was a lot to laugh about and shooting these scenes was both exhausting but also fun for the whole team. However, we had to clear up the mess afterwards :/. When all the shots for the place were filmed and we were relieved that things went well over time, we ate the spaghetti together and the plan for the rest of the day was discussed.

After a failed and much too stressful subway shoot, we ran to our teacher who was already waiting at the raw area. There the way to the party should be recorded. After we felt like walking down the same stairs 30 times to shoot this for the way to the party, we started to freeze slowly. But it was just the beginning. Next the scene in front of the club was shot from a Million perspectives. Everybody in our course- except the cameraman- had to stand in front oft he lens because we had to make it look like an open and lively club, which of course was not the case in reality. After that everybody thought “now it`s only the final scene“, because it was already 8 o`clock pm. But then the teachers gave us a new task: We had to record some sensory perceptions of the area – it was bitter cold… And also during the shooting of the final scene it didn`t get warmer.
After we finished filming all the group scenes and impressions at the raw-space we decided to start filming the end scene of our movie. We picked a small group for this since it was already really dark and cold outside. In the end-scene one of the main characters had to sit outside in the cold, without a jacket. Obviously she was freezing so we even had a blanket-person on our team who started throwing a blanket around her every time the camera was turned off. Even though this shoot was definitely exhausting, it was really fun at the same time and we were all laughing a lot. After we finished shooting the end-scene we warmed up in a cafe for a bit and then a small group went to the train to shoot a train-scene. At this point it was almost midnight and we were all tired and cold but we still tried to make the best out of it and I think it worked out pretty good. Afterwards I think we all just went home and fell asleep right away.

Tournage Jour 1

We met at school on Thursday, March 12th at 10:00 a.m. to plan our shoot. First we got the script and made the last changes. We also discussed when and where we wanted to shoot and then created a shooting schedule for who would do what for the day.

Afterwards we did a casting with various acting exercises to choose the most suitable actors for the film. Our choice ultimately fell on Teresa and Charlotte, but the other candidates also got a small supporting role and they are seen as friends in the film.
In order to finally start shooting, we divided ourselves into two groups. One group immediately drove to a youth club to shoot our key scene on the club toilet, while a smaller second group explored the area nearby to find places that would be suitable for the last scene.

The toilet is reminiscent of the typical Berlin club scene and thus fits well into our film, which is about young Berliners who like to party in the clubs and bars of Berlin. The toilet has great relevance for our film, because here, the turning point takes place with the disappointment of our protagonist. We chose this place because toilets are mainly associated with disgust. It is dark and dirty and forms a perfect contrast to the idyllic situation on the beautiful, sunny outdoor roof terrace, as well as to the cosy apartment kitchen. To illustrate Teresa’s feelings after the disappointing response on the toilet, the sensations we filmed in this place help us. As mesy and chaotic as the club’s toilet looks, Teresa’s thoughts and feelings are also uncertain and in emotional chaos.
At 7:00 p.m. the whole team met again in the youth club, where we were until 9:00 p.m. to discuss our next shooting days with Mr. Etter and Mrs. Krewani.

 

Wir haben uns am Donnerstag, den 12.3.20, um 10 Uhr in der Schule getroffen um unseren Dreh zu planen. Zuerst haben wir das Drehbuch bekommen und an diesem noch letzte Änderungen vorgenommen. Außerdem haben wir besprochen, wann und wo wir drehen möchten und dann einen Drehplan erstellt, wer welche Aufgabe für den Drehtag übernimmt.

Anschließend haben wir ein Casting mit verschiedenen schauspielerischen Übungen gemacht, um die geeignetsten Schauspieler für den Film zu wählen. Unsere Wahl ist schließlich auf Teresa und Charlotte gefallen, wobei die anderen Kandidaten ebenfalls alle eine kleine Nebenrolle bekommen haben und als Freunde im Film zu sehen sind.
Um dann endlich mit dem Dreh beginnen zu können, haben wir uns in zwei Gruppen eingeteilt. Eine Gruppe ist sofort zur erstem Drehort, der Toilette eines Jugendtreffs, gefahren, um unsere Schlüsselszene auf der Clubtoilette zu drehen, während eine kleinere zweite Gruppe die Umgebung erkundet hat, um Orte zu finden, die geeignet wären für die letzte Szene. Die Toilette erinnert an die typische Berliner Clubszene und passt damit auch gut in unseren Film, bei dem es um Jugendliche Berliner, die gerne in Berliner Clubs und Bars feiern geht. Die Toilette hat große Relevanz für unseren Film, da hier mit der Enttäuschung unserer Protagonistin auch der Wendepunkt stattfindet. Wir haben diesen Ort gewählt, weil man Toiletten vor allem mit Ekel verbindet. Sie ist schmutzig, dunkel, verdreckt und stickig und bildet einen perfekten Kontrast zur idyllischen Situation auf der schönen, sonnigen Dachterrasse im Freien, sowie zu der gemütlichen Wohnungsküche. Um Teresas Gefühlslage nach der enttäuschenden Antwort auf der Toilette zu verdeutlichen, helfen uns die Empfindungen die wir an diesem Ort gedreht haben. So zerstört und unordentlich wie die Toilette des Clubs aussieht sind quasi auch Teresas Gedanken und Gefühle.

Um 19 Uhr hat sich dann das ganze Team in dem Jugendtreff wiedergetroffen, wo wir bis 21 Uhr waren um noch unsere nächsten Drehtage mit Herrn Etter und Frau Krewani zu besprechen.

Hey everyone! My name is Teresa Kaup, I am 15 years old and currently attending the 11th grade at Katholische Schule Liebfrauen. I took this video of the train, that i take everyday, on my way home from school. Other than school I associate many parts of my daily life with public transportation, like my weekly drawing course, going to the gym, babysitting or meeting up with friends in my free time. I chose to film this situation, because i like how you can really experience the diversity of Berlin and it´s people, by simply taking the subway. I´m very interested in all forms of art, especially drawing, design and film, which is why I chose this class in the first place.
