Entry Nine – Pre-Production Recce Shots and Shot List

Promotional Video

My promotional video will not use a standard storyboard due to the chaotic nature of working in retail and the uncertainty of how shots are going to fall.  My shot list is a list of requirements that my finished project will need.  In order to maintain a level of realism I will attempt to follow Iceland through a single day from early morning into the night following several of the workers and what they are doing.  When one worker finishes their shift, I will move to another one.  My aim is to tell a story through visual means with no audio other than the musical track in the background and with minimal text.  I would compare it to a fly on the wall style of documentary.  I also want the promotional video to be fast paced so I will be looking to infuse different elements of picture in picture transitions into the video.
