AIM: Within this page the reader will be provided with shots of my films location and an explanation of why I chose this location, where it is and what I think it adds to the mise en scene of my film. They will also be provided with an explanation as to why I chose this particular location.
My film's location is at the back of a council estate in Shepherds bush. I chose this location because I felt that it represented the background of my characters well. In addition I researched that gangster films are generally set in large cities. Furthermore, the estate is run down and looks authentic. Lastly, there was lots of open space which would allow me to film easily and give my actors freedom to roam around during the scene if they felt necessary. I think the location makes the mise en scene of my film seem real and raw rather than made up for my film, thus adding realism to my film.
