Yes! we’ve filmed at last Monday. we felt the kindness of all the staffs and the old people here. The process were smooth. all the scenes that we want to are already in our tapes. and the personal interview i think is quite good due to the interviewee talks naturally, and the story about her is touched. however, we met troubles when we used the gear.this is because we did not familiar enough. furthermore, the frames that we take are seems a sort of common. maybe, it is also caused by skilled problems and it would be better if we could use more different angles. In the next step, we will more focus on post production by utilizing the Final cut pro.Hope our project can be better!

We were gone to the nursing house for the first time at last couple weeks, and understand the real conditions/details of that centre. we found it is really a nice place for old people to live and enjoy their rest of life. good environment /equipments and security systems that insure their personal safety and high level of life qualities. however, i feel some nice views there that quite proper to be the personal interview place. ex: gardens/ lobby with very unique ornament. and yes, there are two people will become to our mainly interviewees.we will ask some questions that around their life /experience but avoid sensitives.we still aim to explore some attractive points to make our documentary interesting. Cantonese will be the main language in our project and then we add English subtitles.
However, we will get start to shoot on Next Monday, it is also a date for mid-autumn Festival, which is so Chinese style and quite benefit for our film theme. so i believe it would become a nice experience both for us and the old people who live in that nursing house.

The video that i upload is actually an Ad about Sony Camera. This is not a real documentary example but i really fond of the way of narrative here. an senior man come to the original place to recall the first encounter with his wife then all the important moments about their life just like a camera lens that began to replay. A camera can bring all the memories back when we were get aging. All the scenes/ images that you cherished could stay real and appearing in front of one’s eyes. The lens here are ingenious cause when the his wife came to his mind, the appearance of young were really faced to him. all the memories between them are followed and go through. Background music here is very touching. I know This is only a creative idea for the Ads but really attract me a lot. let me feel that humans life are just like a documentary, all the stories can only play once then the replay button is your memories.

If we had to explain our documentary in one word, The word is Sunset.
Yes, our documentary mainly focus on aged people and middle age people particular the people migrated from China. we are going to interview some middle-aged people who live in nursing house. we aims to capture their real life situation/explore the reasons why they are willing to stay at AU in their later life. some further questions may involved in our documentary:
* generally narrative the life in the care centre
* the reason why they are here
* how do these aged people interactive with their children
* introduce their daily activity
* what’s their hope or thoughts in their later life
* the mentality compare with the life between Au and their hometown
* what they have found or feeling in the care centre
of course face-to face interview is just one simple form. probably a little bit boring. We could just use the voice beyond the image to present the story that he/she tells. and also,we might think about some normal questions like use one word/short sentences to describe their feeling of living at AU, we could interview many aged people same Q then edit like a montage. the image here might looks full.
In terms of sound, we might select Chinese traditional songs as one of background music. Due to we probably make our documentary at the day of Mid-Autumn Festival so that we could use one that represent the related moon. mid-autumn festival always stand for an emotion of homesick, so it might appropriate to our topic more or less.
above things are just some added tips based on our draft. however, we will develop the further details in terms of the different parts.
