Welcome to the blog of Rasam Production's Asa Newmarch (The Cinematographer), charting the evolution of the opening to the new feature film "Test Drive", jointly produced with Sam Pollock (The Director) and Rob Shaw (The Producer). You'll be able to see the final cut on YouTube [will be linked on a future day] as well as various short videos and vod/podcasts right here on this blog! Enjoy, and please feel free to comment/add suggestions!

We were given just 5 lessons to: pitch an idea for a 30-60sec opening sequence; form groups having voted on the favourites; storyboard; shoot; edit; present and semiotically deconstruct. Exposition has to be primarily provided through mise-en-scene + shot selection; only 17 words of dialogue were permitted.
