I spent two evenings during my pre-production period, in Sefton Park, completing a location Recce and practicing with the logistics of shooting squirrels.
I learned that as my research suggests, the squirrels can be lured with feed to get them to act in a manor that makes filming them effective.
I also gained practice on filming with the cannon 70D, this helped to develop my technical skills.
As well as this, i gained lots of cutaway shots that can be used in my final documentary.
The recces also served as research into the surrounding wildlife in the park, which adds to the narrative of my film.
