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 making our films were simple and timeless. As a group we talked about every shot and agreed on what shots to use for our project. I'm approaching with confidence. In the first project everything went well, no problems. My views on film have changed because i am now more comfortable with a camera.
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 was when we were annoying Ilya. His facial expressions were the best. My least favorite was when i was laying on the ground. The ground was hot during the time and my skin was heating up. These shots taught me how to transitions shots and how to angle the camera.
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.
Shooting in the studio felt more professional than filming outside. It affected our video in a good way. Everything came out nicer and clearer. Approaching the montage was cool with cooper, but not really because he isn't the smartest.
