Planning: Location

When choosing a location for our film, we knew we wanted somewhere easily accessible with all the equipment we will be carrying, as well is within walking distance of our homes.

We had many options for the location of our scenes in the woodlands, such as

  • Norsey Woods (Billericay)
  • Mill Meadows (Billericay)
  • Sweyne Park (Rayleigh)
  • Rayleigh Mount (Rayleigh)
  • Memorial Park (Wickford)

We narrowed it down to these options as they were around the areas that all the members of out group currently lived in.

However we decided that we would chose Rayleigh Mount as our location to film in.

This was because it was within walking distance from the train station for members of the group (including me) who didn’t live in Rayleigh to be able to get to and was also in walking distance to the house we had chosen to film at later that day.

We knew we wanted a woodland location for our film as we wanted to give an isolated, eery atmosphere that is created in a lot of real horror media products. After visiting the location, we have decided firmly for now this is where we will film the majority of our scenes on the 15th and 22nd of January.
