As a group, we all had the same ideas on what angles we should use for our video. On the first project filming was super easy, but when it came to the editing, I struggled. At first I thought it`d be easy but it`s actually so difficult and complicated.
I think my favorite shot was the close up shot because I felt like it helped capture all of the emotion. My least favorite shot was the wide shot just because I didn`t really like the way mine turned out for the commercial. Learning all these shots has taught me that cinematography is very complicated because there`s so many different angles that need to be used in order to make a good film.
Our plot was a wife catches her spouse cheating, goes to a coffee shop and a stranger makes her day. It was really hard to work with a script because we couldn`t remember our lines. i think the close up shots were the best because it caught the most emotion.
When it comes to making films in this class, my biggest barrier is remembering the steps. A way i`m trying to overcome this is asking for help in hopes that I can remember sooner or later. I think one of my biggest ah-ha moments was when i finally remembered how to actually get started when it came to editing my films.
Filming in the studio was pretty cool. i liked how all the special lighting made the video look more professional. For the montage we decided to make it more of like a time frame kinda. we decided to cut parts of liam running from place in hopes to show he was in a rush to get to the bathroom
in the film, 'The Conjuring' i was on edge because the movie was scary. i remember the music getting really eerie, which scared me even more. as a film maker i think id have an easier time making people laugh.
