After visiting FACT to speak to the manager of The Garden cafe, they asked me to email what I would require to them, which I did immediately. They seemed supportive of the project but time is running out and I haven’t heard back from them yet so I am going to contact more coffee shops and look for an alternative location in case this one falls through.
When looking at the closing times of cafes, many of them tend to close early on Sundays and since the sunlight lasts until much later at this time of year, I would like to use the hours from around 4pm-9pm to film. I am confident that if I did this over two days, I would be able to get all the footage I needed.
The other shots could be done in one day with the studio in the college being used as the press-junket setting.
