Pins & Needles
A statement about the film
Pins & Needles is a documentary about female tattooist in the Plymouth area. The documentary has been produced, filmed and edited by Emily Woodridge, the film was created with no funding.
Click here for Pins & Needles main site
I decided to make the main site on facebook as I feel this is where most of the public will see the final piece. Facebook is a very good advertising space as people are on it 24/7.
The running time of the film is 4:44 I feel this is a good time for the film as it isn’t too short to make the audience want more and it isn’t too long for the audience to get bored.

A statement about you
The reason I became a Filmmaker is because I enjoy educating people. I myself enjoy the feeling of watching something and feel as if I have come out being more knowledgeable about a subject after watching something, and this is what I want to achieve with my films.
Obviously, my preferred style of film making is Documentary. Documentary is about real things, you can manipulate things but it will also be the truth. It will always be fact, it can’t be something made up. And that why I enjoy Documentary, I can educate people.

This is a documentary on female tattooist in Hong Kong, this film has been made for a few News Companies. You can tell this is more corporate than what I am going for as the voice over is very similar to what you get on News pieces, it gives the film a more formal feel.

I want my documentary to start with a quote. I think a piece of information/ writing shown to a audience makes them think straight away. It makes an audience interested in what’s coming next.

"There are very few jobs that actually require a penis or vagina. All other jobs should be open to everybody." - Florynce Kennedy
This is the quote I want to use. I feel that it represents what I am trying to say perfectly. The person who said this quote is an activist and feminist, so it goes well with what I am trying to say that woman can do exactly the same as men.

Virtual Budget

I were doing this int he real world, not a college project, I would have to come up with a budget for the documentary.

Not to discuss budget with anyone…could be tricky if someone is funding your film.. for your first film you will have no funding, personal, or otherwise, and it is possible to make a movie for almost no money, drawing up a hypothetical budget is an excellent exercise… help pervent you from being ripped off in the future… best to set up your budget using a computer spreadsheet.. not complex… names of items, their price list, what expect to pay and what you actually paid.

Everything cost money and I will be looking into all the pieces that cost. There are many different departments in a production that could be used. Obviously because I am doing a documentary I won’t need certain departments such as arts department, SFX department, props department, model making department, hair and make up, costume and wardrobe department.
