Describe the process of creating your one-shot and multi-shot films... How did you work as a group to develop what shots should be taken? How are you approaching the editing process? What have been some successes and hurdles in these first projects? How do you feel your views on film have changed now that you've had a taste of the work involved?
The one shot story was a little bit challenging because it was my hole groups first time doing something like that and my camera man took a while to find out how to use the camera. Another difficulty we faced was we couldn't stop laughing and even in the final cut we had some smiles because again it was are first time doing this. After done shooting the video we had to edit and at first we thought one person was editing for all of us but then we realized we all had to make are own edits. At first i was really bad at editing and didn't know what to do but then i learn with the paper and i think i'm good at it. Now i think i really like video production after the first project. Im really looking forward to do more.
Reflect on the process of creating your TV Show Pilot: 1) Provide a logline (plot in a single sentence) for your original CJ6: Screenplay. 2) Connect what you designed for CJ7: costume(s) to the story you created - why did you design what you designed based on the story? 3) Tell, too, about the TV Show Pilot you filmed and edited with your group... 3a) what was it like to work with a script and 3b) what types of shot(s) do you feel brought the show to life most?

My story is about is about a dad addicted to candy some of the lines are,'' go home little Bobby''and '' aye, you got the stuff''.
Its connected to my drawing because my guy looks like a old man that wants candy but has a child that doesn't want him to do that.
It was Kelvins story because we thought it was the best we didn't finish all of it but i think we have enough to edit a fairly decent video.
It was easy because we have everything in our hands
I guess wide shots because it give you an idea where they are.
Consider the shots and camera movements we've defined, shot, and edited. Which is your favorite from those you captured for your commercial and why? Also, which is your least favorite shot/camera move and why? What has learning about all these shots/moves taught you about cinematography?
my favorite was the 3/4 shot because i like how it got only 3/4 of my body and we made the scene funny, also it was one of the easiest shots to film. it was full body shot because it was awkward to film because i didn't know which part of my body he was filming. It taught me that it is difficult and and easy.
Share your ups and downs of film making on your blog, and how you plan to continue to grow in the second half of the class. Do this by writing about your two biggest psychological barriers when it comes to making films? For each, provide an example of the barrier you encountered this term as well as a solution you plan to initiate in the second term to overcome this barrier. Then finish off the entry by recalling the biggest success or an ah-ha moment that you've had this term. Provide details about what made it a great moment for you and how you felt you grew from the experience.
I like film making but it can also be a pain in the butt because it usually fun when you film the videos but when you're done its a little hard to edit and some times presenting is a little embarrassing but its still kind of fun. I plan to grow by trying harder to edit and do better effects. As I said my two biggest barriers are editing and presenting and ill fix that by getting better at editing and trying harder to have confidence. One moment that was like an ah-ha moment was when i was looking how to cut and i kept trying and trying but it didn't work then i finally did it and i was like"ah-ha", and it felt good because i did something by my self.
Describe your experience shooting this project in the film studio with the added lighting elements. How do you feel the studio time affected your final product quality? Additionally, how did you approach the montage portion of your film. Describe what you chose to cut together and what effect you hope for it to have on your audience as a part of your "Flash Forward" film.
It was a great experience when we filmed with the lights because every thing looks professional and it effected are video by making the cop seen more vibrant. So it turned into a flashback by Micheal talking about her abuse and it turns into her thinking when she was abused and it turns to her flashback of how she got abused then goes back into present day to answer a question. This i think will make the audience surprised and maybe uncomfortable.
Hitchcock is know as the Master of Suspense. Recall in detail a time when you felt a film had you most on edge--- either scared, excited, distressed, or passionate. What do you remember from the film itself (text, lighting, sound, set-up) that you believe made it truly effective? As a film maker yourself, what emotions do you think you'd be best at effecting in your audience and how do you imagine you would go about doing it?
One of the movies I watched that left me in suspense is the movie "The Conjuring" which is a horror film and i'd never know when something would pop out and scare me half way to deaths door. The thing that made it truly effective is that its dark and you can here every little noise until it becomes loud then silent then something comes from the shadows and kill you. i would do a comedic suspense. So basically there in a scary moment and when the scary thing pops out its just something funny.
Braidon is the best actor. In every story/video we do she always wants to be in them and hes in all of them and i personally think hes a great actor and one of the best in our group. He is always trying to better himself in all the work he does and thriving to be the best in the class
So my thoughts on my first video were that i was still not good at editing so i just messed around with the editing and it actually worked out. My acting wasn't good and I didn't like that but it just made the video fun and goofy. My overall opinion in this class is that its awesome and amazing and I love it. The people here are so fun and creative and we record and edit and we can see are own cool project. The teacher is cool and fun and I love recording with my friends and i'm going to really miss this class.
