R+P Post 16: Casting, costumes, hair and make-up

Before shooting we had already planned what our actors would wear in order to portray them in such a way that it would get the desired reaction from the audience.

It is important to note that make up was not necessary for any actors involved as that would have disrupted with the image we were attempting to portray; that is a very gritty, real story.

The test shoot helped us amend our key decisions concerning costume. For example, our antagonist wore his hood indoors which did not make sense to the audience as there was no threat indoors for him to be hiding from. Therefore, we amended his costume to where he wouldn't wear his hood indoors. Additionally, our news anchor was wearing a bright floral shirt in our test shoot which looked very unprofessional and therefore unrealistic for a news anchor and so we changed it to a more simple plain, smart shirt.
