I imaged where we are going to film and how I need to act in this film before we really start filming. The places we want are a small room with a table and an alley way, and I drew a storyboard for representing how my film will unfold, shot by shot. Here is my storyboard:
 Choosing Location
Choosing location is a very important thing when you making a film, and it took me about 2 weeks to find a very long and narrow alley way. After I finished filming in the alley way, I found this alley way is exactly what I am looking for.
I did not use any plugin to make a fake rain. The day I went out shooting was a rainy day. All the water droplets and poundings you see in the film are real.
I wore the ring on right hand during filming the first scene, and I intentionally wore the ring on left hand in the final scene. The reason I did this because I am trying to show the audience what kind of changes does the protagonist have when the different personality dominate the body, not only his clothes, but also the position of his ring.
I bought a fake club and a bottle of fake blood online, and I did use them properly in the film.
For showing the difference when the different personality dominate the protagonist’s body, I asked for help with make up. This make up below shows what the protagonist looks like when the bad personality dominate the body.
 Spotlight Use
When I editing my film, I used spotlight properly, which effectively created a dark and gloomy atmosphere in the room. Here is the difference:
I am currently studying in a media foundation course. Modules that I have on this course include subjects, such as film, media theory, journalism, marketing an advertisement. Every term subjects swop, so from September until now I’ve done only film and media theory.
In this section you can find out my film analysis, which I have done as a part of course work. Moreover, in this section you also can find 2 advert analysis and 1 film poster analysis, which I produced on my own during this term. Here is the link to Media Analysis.
As a part of film and media course works, I have produced a film analysis of ‘Phone Booth’.

SPLIT is a 2017 thriller short film which directed by Ruiyang Zhang (filmed by Jiayue Wang and voiced by Shelcia Rita).
The protagonist is a good and righteous male character, he finds out the mysterious evil male character’s address with a woman’s help. After the protagonist hangs up the phone and leaves the room, he goes to the place that mysterious man lives, he finds that place is actually a dark and horrific alleyway. He has the courage to walk in because he has to find out that mysterious man. When the protagonist almost goes through the whole alleyway, suddenly he is hit and falls to the ground by a man who wears a black hooded coat. When the protagonist wakes up, he finds he is still in the room which is same as the room at the beginning, and he wears the same black hooded coat as that mysterious man wears. The woman who helped the protagonist at the beginning calls him again, she finds the protagonist’s voice and attitude are totally different compared the beginning. The truth is that mysterious man is actually a personality in the protagonist’s mind, and this evil man’s personality dominates the protagonist’s body after he hit and killed the righteous personality. The protagonist is a schizophrenia patient. Everything is happening in his mind, includes that alleyway, and that is why he wakes up in the room rather than the dark alleyway, because he never left that room.
The short film SPLIT uses a variety of shot size (from long shots to extreme close-up) and camera angles to represent different scene, plenty of tracking shots shows how the protagonist searches the alleyway and low key lighting represents the dark, horrific and mysterious atmosphere.
