The script for the Gattaca project should focus on simple, concentrated dialogue. Think about the pacing of the phrase between the Flight Director and Jerome when the Director said, “You keep your work station so clean, Jerome”
There should be slow, deliberate lines. Please review some of the scenes of the film to match the styling. Allow for more silence than actual speaking. Body language, facial expressions, and pauses between back and forth conversation should create the mood of the scene.
The project will be filmed in class with the artificial lights. Filming may occur off campus as long as artificial lighting is used to create dramatic lighting. If this is the case, please speak with Mr. Crouch about your idea.
Regarding the visuals; plan on a lighting demonstration on Monday, 2/27. To come prepared, plan the clothes to shoot using solid colors, preferably dark neutrals like black or grey. The background will either be black, grey, or white. The lighting will be fairly dramatic with strong highlights and shadows. Artificial lights will need to be used. Set the correct color balance before filming.
