We have created a table showing our availability times to narrow down when we can film and when we can't. The boxes in red show that we cannot film at these times due to work, therefore we will have to work around this situation.

We're currently making a plan of when and where we're going to film as we all know it has been postponed due to the weather! That's inexcusable now as we must film! :) I'll upload the plan as soon as we're done, hopefully we will break it down to a more thorough plan showing which shots we will use, too. We need to know each others availablities because of work, so we will make a table showing the times we can film as well.

I'm currently working on a questionnaire on what the audience would like to see from our short film. Our target audience will mostly be people of a similar age to ours (16-20). We believe this is the best age range to apply our short film too as we know more about what people this age like, as obviously, we are in this age group.

For further research I have looked in more depth at Charlie Chaplin to get a better insight as to why his Silent Films were so important and how he became so iconic.
Slapstick comedy can be seen in more modern films as well such as Frank Coraci's The Water Boy, Dennis Dugan's Happy Gilmore and the franchise of comedy films Scary Movie. Although cinema has evolved to a more professional standard with there now being colour and sound, it is obvious that Charlie Chaplin was the reason why so many filmmakers create products based around a comic nature, all down to Chaplin's revolutionary ideas, thus making him an extremely significant figure.
