Hurrah – the scene by scene is now coming together for me as i read and re-read these blog posts. Of course the narrative can be broken up at some point so the audience pulls the story together.
1. Shots of preparation beforehand – people waiting to have their go and being led to the track. Their desire and anticipation to get on the track.
2. Building up speed on and off the track
the ground outside – this is when we can hear a single voice – it will help focus the mind.
3. Gesturing on the track – looking behind
4. Back to the track and seeing overtaking on the track
Link to future – talk of hope, image of person practising on their bike at home or people walking about touching the track, view from a moving train, the moving sky.
5. Repeat 2, 3, 4 until the brain (audience) gets it with an *interlinking segment
6. End (link end shot to the beginning)
Same sound of shoes on track but not seeing that – seeing something else e.g. bikes lined up in corridor –
*Note: The film will be cyclical and episodic in nature – aim for three short loops – with three different voices – all essentially saying the same thing but through a different voice and different images – with an interlinking segment e.g. coach giving a chat of encouragement and the whistle and the coach watching.
The archive and/ or non-velodrome shots will carry a single voice to make it easy to focus in on what is being said there.
The film is the journey archive.
