29th May- Freshfields 2nd production.

On the 29th May I had arranged with my contributor, and booked out kit, to travel to Freshfields to shoot my last interview and remainder of cutaway shots.
The day started drizzling with rain, and by the time we made it to Formby train station it was pouring down.
I had real worries the kit was going to get ruined, and the quality of the footage would have been poor in the rain in the forest.
My risk assessments had warned of likelihood of rain causing issues, but as it had been very fine weather the days leading up to the shoot, I forgot to check.
This was a severe mistake I made, as I was unable to shoot.
This has left me behind in my schedule, which was already stretched after difficulties setting dates with contributors.
In future I will always check the weather ahead of time, and frequently leading up to shoots.
will also take measures in the future to plan for possible communication issues.
have created a new schedule for my raining week before the deadline to ensure I have time to complete my edit, and capture the remaining footage.
The importance of scheduling, time keeping and communication is great.
