Hello ... today I was asked if I could film our local council's Young Mayor election process. They want me to produce a short piece of film showing young poeple casting their votes, and the subsequent vote count. This will be played on a loop during the announcement of the winning candidate.
My question is .... how can I make this look exciting and dramatic to try and build tension? I'm thinking I can most likely get some good close ups of vote cards being filled in and posted, some nice establishing shots of the schools where the voting is taking place, and create some graphics using photos of the 52 (!) candidates.
Does anyone have any suggestions of shots to look out for, or methods of editing to liven the whole thing up?
