The original plan was to get permission to film on-site at RMIT Brunswick Campus; however due to several layers of approval needed, I've decided to go with my backup plan which is to film Heartree in a local park.

Completed a range of activities in preparation for filming Heartree over Weeks 10-11, including:

  • Scouting suitable trees at local parks
  • Test set up of installation to plan camera shots and angles
  • Taking measurements of the tree to cut wires and ropes to length
  • Checking the weather forecast for a suitable non-rainy day for filming
  • Planning how to run Heartree purely via laptop battery power (and preparing a backup laptop just in case)
  • Writing step-by-step instructions on how to set up Heartree
  • Storyboarding which shots I need to get as much footage as possible
  • Liaising and planning with my filmmaker and friend helping out on the day
