Coursework film

The coursework idea that I am going to be filming an my group of three is a zombie film that takes inspiration from films such as "Dawn of the Dead" and...  The first shot of the film is an extreme close up of the main character's (Jack Hanson) eye as he tries to barricade himself from the zombies, which leads to a flashback of before the attack.

Swede Task

For this task we had to create a "swede" of a film, of our choice. Our group used "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" which is one of my favourite films. We had to take the aspects of the film and change it so it would be humorous. Therefore, using bananas as guns, and silly costumes was the way forward! We then added the films soundtrack and added a few sound effects to make it all fit together and look better.

A swede is picking a film and recreating it on a zero budget. Therefore there is no need for high budget actors or special effects, its just a small budget and a camcorder, and you are set!. Jack Black created the "swede" in the film Be Kind Rewind (Michael Gondry, 2008), this introduced sweding to the public and made it popular.
