Director's Notes

Clinics "Birthday"

I wasn't able to find a lot of ref. images that accurately reflect the way I want to shoot this but I'm really excited about the location and I'm confident it will look amazing! 

Shot Structure

  1. Wide establishing shot showing tree and birthday party. "Push In"
  2. Medium shot of Kid swinging stick at pinata
  3. Ground up shot. Camera is on the ground pointing straight up at the pinata. Candy falls on the lens as children converge.
  4. Close up of children laughing/smiling

I want to shoot this in the morning but this really depends on the sun and location. Obviously a beautiful sky is critical for this shot.

There are lots of different shapes, sizes and color options for pinatas. I prefer to use one of these three shapes. Also I would like to find one with pastel colors and stay away from primary colors if possible. I'd love to hear what you guys prefer.

I think these fiesta paper fans are cool. I'm looking for ways to make the space more dimensional and give myself objects to move through and past. A combination of these fans and balloons will add hits of color and give the space more parallax as the camera moves. Let me know your thoughts.
