As a group we have many ideas for our documentary and we are developing them all. There are three ideas to choose from and now it all depends on the location permits. I have sent an email to the headteacher of Betty Layward Primary School where my mother works but I have not received a reply yet.
From my treatment it looks like the documentary about my mother would be more about the school and kids than herself so I started to think about how to make it more personal. Firstly we decided that it would be better if we film the interview in polish. This would reinforce the idea of being an immigrant and teaching the young minds of Britain in English. One other idea involves using pictures from my mums past and see her grow up in front of our eyes just as the kids will soon. Here is a test of that idea that i created in AF, it still need tweaking and possibly repositioning and timing:
I was thinking of the interview starting this way and then morphing into Dorota’s face as she is interviewed, however its all up for discussion.
