As we're reaching the time for us to finish the filming aspect of this project, Hayden and I have planned out the rest of our filming schedule.
For the next part of filming, we are completing our T.V. show scene some time at the end of the week, possibly in the weekend. This is where Hayden and I will take the roles of two sports broadcasters, reporting the injury of the athlete, whom which we have now named, Steve Bayless. We didn't actually plan on being a part of the film at first, but then we decided that it was okay for the simple scene of sports broadcasting.
What we've done is we've created a script for our broadcasting, with the script showing exactly what we will be saying when we report the news. Here it is:
H: We just received news regarding the top high school track and field prospect in the country; Steve Bayless.
F: Apparently he’s experienced an undisclosed injury while practicing.
H: Bayless is a very talented athlete and holds scholarships from many major colleges and universities.
F: As a senior in high school, Bayless holds the record for the fastest 400m in the country and placed first in his state championship. Nationally, Steve Bayless is the number one ranked recruit in the country in terms of track and field.
H: as we’ve said before, the injury is still undisclosed. In the past, there have been many talented high school athletes who have experienced severe injuries that’ve derailed their careers.
F: and with him being a senior, it’s possible that these scholarships may be rescinded
H: it certainly isnt a good sign that no one knows what the injury is yet, as it could be a simple hamstring pull or something even more devastating.
F: we can only hope that the injury isn’t too severe as Steve Bayless is a very talented runner with a bright future ahead of him and we wish him luck on his path to redemption.
We plan on memorizing the scripts, but not exactly word-for-word, as sports broadcasters usually have scripts in front of them to base their news off of and such, so we will have the scripts in front of us and look to it a couple of times.
As for the rest of our filming. we plan on having the scene where the athlete is actually watching the sports film on the weekend too, possibly the beginning of next week at the latest. Our editing will be done shortly after that, with the completion of the film production being the day after.
I also found out that there was another group meeting coming tomorrow. More updates coming soon!
