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?
We thought of the idea then shot it, we had a lot of failed attempts but we made it work.
I have been getting better at editing and remembering what to do.
I have been getting my work done but sometimes i don't even realize I have work to do.
My feelings have changed because it is a lot of hard work.
You deserve the Best Actor award because the way you acted in the films was completely amazing. Keep up the great work.
My favorite shot was the high angle shot because it looked like you were looming over what they were doing in the commercial. My least favorite shot was the close up because it seemed kind of awkward being that close. It has taught me that there is many ways and not just one one way to hold and use a cammera.
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 have liked film making it is pretty fun but I have sometimes not had enough or the right kind of footage and i have to work my way around that. One psychological barrier is that sometimes you have a vision in your head but you just cant do it because of your artistic skill or you just can't put it together. Another one is that you can get caught in yes men that tell you everything you do is amazing and they don't give you constructive criticism. This leads you to not improving your filming. My moment was when I was editing the second time and I was like, "I don't need to call the teacher every 20 seconds". It felt amazing to know thta you are improving at something.
Best Director for being great at directing and coordinating our group.
It was pretty cool to film in the studio. It felt like we were doing something that was challenging but fun at the same time. The lighting made Tommy look great in the shot. It made he scene look awesome. The editing went pretty well there was a slight mess up but I made up for it.
u did very good at editing and u did the most work out of the group, ur basically the leader of the group
I liked showing my music video because it was my best work by far and I spent a lot of time on it. The class overall has been really fun and was really a good way to learn film. It was my favorite class of the semester by far.
