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 look at all the good one and the select them all. Then move then to after affects. We cut out the bad part. My first success is that filming is not that hard and I would always thing filming and editing would be hard but once you get the hang of it, its easy. My views have change.
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 was the full shot because it shows more detail. My least favorite shot was the extreme close-up because its to close to the character. All the shots I learn taught me a lot about cinematography. I didn't even know some of those shots.
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 shots we did are Establishing shot, insert shot, reaction shot, freeze frame, superimposition, point-of-view shot, reverse angle shot, slow disclosure shot, fast-motion shot, and slow-motion shot. It was easier to work with a script because we didn't have to make stuff up and that with take a lot of time.
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 ah-ha moments is when I got to see other films from the students in my class and other classes. My experience in this is learning how to make and edit a film. I didn't think I would like this class but it was actually fun this term hope the do more films then anything else in the this class.
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 lighting made it look more realistic. The time in the studio was fine but some people take a little over 20 min to film because there can be a lot of mistakes.
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?
What I remembered from the film is the lighting it was good. The emotion that I would do best is funny because when you are laugh your happy and not sad or scared.
