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 scene is the close-up of Ilya putting his thumb up. My least favorite is the tracking shot of me running to Ilya. It taught me that there is alot of things about cinematography.
Reflect on the process of creating a 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 and character(s)?
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? Our plot is about two people who play different games coming together. I designed a t-shirt and cargo pants with un matches shoes. My group members are me, jack, nick, cooper, ilya. I feel the close ups brought the shot to life because it look funny.
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:
1) What are 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.
2) 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. My ups were a lot not really downs even though i came late into production I learned pretty quick some of my downs was actually doing the work i'm really lazy. I plan on trying to do the work if I can do that I think I will do fine in the long run. Well some of my barriers was that when we had to go on our own and do the work must people just goofed off and I was just trying to get done. Also I really didn't like what the film was about I think it was stupid. I plan on trying to get everyone focused so we can get our work done and do better films. My biggest moment of the term when he showed our film and it was so stupid I put my face in my jacket. I grew by not looking at it being embarrassing and looking at a laugh moment.
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.
My experiences shooting this project was fun Because the lighting was great and once we got done we took some pictures. I like the studio time and I feel like it helped us get our work done. I didn't know what to do for my montage but then I got an idea im just going to use the edits of him making the ball in the hoop. I hope that it will have a big affect on the audience and see why I did that.
