During the day I took on the role of cool kid 5. This involved some dancing, running about and acting moody to the character.

When I wasn't in front of the camera I was:
- On the clapper board
- This was very important as it marks in the shots and take, this process is important as it makes the process of editing much easier as it is a quick signifier of the shot.

- Cable Bashing
- Cable bashing is important as it is a way to ensure the camera operator doesn't trip on the wires of the camera when it is handheld.
- Supporting the actors performing
- This was very important as it meant energy was always high and no one felt really embarrassed when they were performing in front of the camera by themselves.
