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 process of creating my one and multi shot story consisted of:
filming the original one shot, editing that, turning it in in the span of two days, after the one shot story my filming group proceeded to film multiple angle (about 10 or so) after that we pick the ones we would use individually edited it and turned it in. I am approaching this with the knowledge i already have of editing, in Washington my cousin had me edit his film class movies for about $125 a movie. My successes have been connecting my takes and making them one solid take. My views on film haven't changed since I've been editing for awhile, i do however think adobe after effects is better than what i used to use.
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 shot would have to be the pan because it could be combined with so many other shots, My least favorite is the obscure shot i think its called, when you spin the camera, because its the least usable in many scenes. Learning theses shots taught me that there is many different ways to shoot a shot.
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?
The plot was a bully bulling and someone stopping him. The costume design fit Poncho Western because hes a rich kid that bullies poorer kids. working with a script is weird because you cant hold it but you need it. i feel all the shots helped
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.
The experience is weird but also cool its a lot more fun than going out on the quad and filming. I feel the time in the studio bettered the final product of my film. I chose to use superimposition to do my montage.
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?
the most suspense iv'e felt watching a movie was Scream in the bathroom scene. I remember that the antagonist was a killer who wore a mask, i remember the sound effects were scary and iconic. id best effect the audience in a comedic way.

Best Director:You got this because you knew the shots to take and the right angles
