How it turned out New Section (22/03/16)
Allergic Reaction to makeup - Mollie
I got Mollie to use her own makeup as she uses it every day so this will reduce if not eliminate the chances of an allergic reaction.
She was absolutely fine, she had no reaction to the makeup I used whatsoever.
Allergic Reaction to makeup Nazarena
I used a small patch of makeup on her neck to test if there would be irritation in order to use this. I also have hypo-allergic makeup that she will be using this will reduce irritation.
She did go rather red; however she seemed to find it okay. There was no damage done.
Allergic Reaction to makeup – Liam
I used a small patch of makeup on his neck to test if there would be irritation in order to use this. I waited 48 hours before I knew he would be not allergic. I also have hypo-allergic makeup that he will be using this will reduce irritation.
He wasn’t allergic so he was fine.
Ink Poisoning for the Sharpie
I applied the sharpie myself making sure there weren’t excessive amounts on her face, or even to ensure it didn’t go into her mouth. I double checked online
She was fine, although there were mild stains on her upper lip for a day after.
possible methods for removing the sharpie pen from her lips – this included nail varnish remover upon many other things.
Poisoned from the nail varnish remover
I would have to apply it myself and ensure that the nail polish remover didn’t get into her blood stream/into cracks in her lips / gums. I also have my health and safety badge which allows me to perform certain operations in that case.
I ended up just using makeup wipes; I felt it too risky to use the remover.
Drowning in the bath scenes
I will make sure that Mollie can swim and I will have a constant supervision for these scenes. I will also make sure she isn't too tired or ill at all before filming. I will also make sure I have my CPR mouth guard with me when doing these scenes just in case I may have to perform CPR on her.
Mollie was absolutely fine. There was no issue with drowning whatsoever
Impaired sight from the use of the torch in the face.
I may use tracing paper in order to thin the glare from the torch, this will allow for the actors to be able to look to the camera.
I used the tracing paper with Mollie because she seemed to not like the glare; I didn’t use it for
the other two actors though.
Tripping in the dark
Because it’s in the dark I must ensure that I shine a light on the back, as it’s in my garden I will be able to shine a light from my lounge out of the windows to show the path on my garden.
I fell over however none of my actors did literally ‘break a leg’.
I also have a pair of crutches available for if they happen to break or sprain their ankles etc. Falling off the swings
There is a good chance that either Nazarena or Liam may fall off the swings when doing this. At first I will start off using individual shots of each so we always have one person on standby to catch or help the other. When they will be both on the swings at the same time I must just focus on watching their hands and reducing how high they go so the impact of falling would be reduced.
We were fine; we didn’t have issues with the swings at all. They were fairly wet so it could have easily ended up with the pair slipping off.
Falling off the see saw
I will be doing this part, so I will make sure that I hold onto the safety bars whilst I perform on it.
It went fine. There were no issues with the see-saw.
Suffocation from the rabbit mask
I will test the rabbit mask myself and if need be I will cut another hole in the mask to make sure it is easy to breath in. There are already two holes in the mask however it may be necessary to make another.
Liam managed okay; I cut a little slit in the back of the mask to make sure he could definitely breathe okay.
Falling off the TV - Mollie
I will have to make sure that the TV is completely dry and does not have a slippery surface entering and on top of the bench to make sure she won’t fall. I also have a washing line that I attached to her And told her to grab if she felt like she was going to fall.
She slipped a bit but she didn’t fall off the TV at all.
Falling off the TV – Nazarena
As I am only getting her to sit on top of the TV unlike Mollie who needed to lay down, she is at less risk. I will make sure nothing is slippery when getting on and off the TV
She managed to do this shot fine.
Falling off the bench – Liam
As I am getting him to stomp on to the TV on top of the bench there is a very likely chance that he may fall off due to losing balance.
It didn’t rain the day before so the bench and TV were completely dry.
I will make sure the bench is completely dry and non-slippery, I will also make sure that the TV is dry too as if it is wet his foot may slip and he will fall. Salmonella from the raw egg
It depends A person infected with Salmonella usually has a fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhoea beginning 12 to 72 hours after consuming a contaminated food or beverage. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most persons recover without antibiotic treatment. However, the diarrhoea can be severe, and the person may be ill enough to require hospitalization.
Keeping eggs adequately refrigerated prevents any Salmonella present in the eggs from growing to higher numbers, so eggs should be refrigerated until they are needed. I will need to make sure that she spits all of the egg out if any should go into her mouth and make sure she doesn’t swallow any of it. I must make sure the egg is cracked open there and then to make sure it isn't open to the air for a substantial amount of time. I will also have a towel and wipes on standby to make sure I get it off her face quickly and promptly.
She was fine, I did the procedures I spoke about before and she didn’t swallow any so the risk was reduced.
Fire from the lighting
I am using my iPhone and a handheld torch for my lighting; therefore the chances are significantly reduced. However if there were to be a fire it would be very easy to control as my filming it outside. I will make sure that if the phone becomes hot I take a break until it cools down, likewise with the torch, I will take out the batteries if it becomes hot.
My phone became heated so I made small intervals to allow it to cool.
Injury when smashing the TV
I will make sure Liam wears safety goggles and make sure that I stand away and Nazarena (who will help with lighting) will be at least 1.5 metres away. We will also be wearing safety goggles and fully clothes to make sure glass doesn’t fly out at us.
We did have flying glass however, it was controlled and Liam worked out where to hit the glass in order to get it to not travel towards any of us.
Liam will also be stood behind the TV, so I must make sure he doesn’t lean over the TV as the chances of getting hit by the glass will be improved.
Choking on the food – Liam
I will make sure I have my health and safety book with me when filming these food scenes. I will be using jelly and bread. I will make sure that Liam is spitting the food out rather than swallowing it. I will also make sure that he doesn’t have a chesty cough beforehand which may increase the risk.
He made sure he spat out all of the food so there was no choking of any sort.
