Style of the movie
A Hard Day's Night movie was produced for United Artists (UA) using the style of a cinema verite, in black-and-white and the production lasted for 16 weeks. It was produced with a budget of $500,000 (£200,000), which was considered low at that time. Originally, the movie itself was something of a minor consideration to UA, whose main interest was in being capable of releasing the recording album in the United States earlier than Capitol Records, the American EMI associate who had initially shot at releasing Beatles song in the country, spreading to issuing their stuff.
Production of the movie
Not like most movie productions, A Hard Day's Night was produced in close to chronological order. Filming was started on the 2nd of March 1964 at a station in Marylebone, London. The Beatles had united with Equity, the actors' union, only that day morning. The primary week of filming was performed on a train touring between Minehead and London. On the 10th of March, scenes in the company of Ringo were shot in Head pub at Turk in Twickenham, and over the subsequent week different interior scenes were shot at Twickenham Studios. From 23rd March to 30th March, filming stirred to the Scala Theatre, and on 31st March, show footage was shot there, even though the group imitated to backing tracks. The last scene was filmed on the 24th of April 1964 in West Ealing in London, where Ringo, helpfully drops his coat over lakes, for a woman to step in, only to see that the final lake is really a big hole in the road.
