So currently I have been put into a group of 3 and we have written up a shot list and are producing a storyboard to plan out each individual shot that will feature in the finished exercise. We decided to order the shots so to make the best use of the time. So any shots that are roughly in the same area or pointed in the same direction are grouped up in the list.

Wide shot Looking at door from inside room as Thomas opens the door
