We drew a story board of the different steps that we would take in filming our opening sequence:

We also drew out a single shot of the interviews we are going to do. We made sure we set the correct mise-en-scene for each interview:
This is for the interview with Vicki who own Glo Sun Rooms, the mise en scene shows posters and leaflets advertising special offers, the interview will take place in the actual salon.

This is for the interview with Sarah Fenlon. She used to use sun beds until her relative was diagnosed with skin cancer. This will be set in her work place, a hairdressers. The mise-en-scene will show towels, shampoos, conditioners, sink, etc.

This interview is of Lana Quilty,a student who tans to go on nights out. She will be in the common room at her college, behind her there will be pictures of her and her friends on nights out.

The interview with Joe Deer was to be in his office and so the mise-en-scene would consist of office ware such as computers, pens, etc. 

As Mrs Battle is a teacher she was also going to be in her office and so the mise-en-scene will be similar to that of Joe Deer. There will be a computer, books, files, etc.

Our interview with Nicky is going to be set in a consultation room, there is likely to be medical equipment and a computer.

We had to design a set of question for each of our interviewees:
