The location took place in one of our members’ house which gave us plenty of time to focus on blocking shots. According to the storyboard, we planned for a 1-day shooting, but due to the rain, we needed to take 2 days for the production instead. We had 3 main source lights. Since the film takes place at night, we needed to sacrifice 1 light for the window light. We use the blind window and the outdoor tree leaves to cast a shadow onto the wall and shelf to create night and frightening mood. We didn't want to use a typical ghost, so we came up with the random ancient text design we painted on our ghost guy. The contrast of black and white paint really delivers a scary skin texture that somehow defines a mysterious characteristic of a non-typical ghost we’d say. With full control of our scene lights and settings, we can shoot the same scene in both days. Visual effects (we use After Effects) really plays a big role in the ghost game, which pulls out surprises and unusualness.
