How do filmmakers develop and convey stories within the mise-en-scène? - - 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? It was fun filming in our groups and how we had cool ideas to share and try out. I really like editing now that im getting the hang of it. I like film its not boring at all and it gets you used to being in front of 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?
I liked the full body shot because it made the commercial funny.
I dont like the low angle shot because it was the hardest.
It showed me what it takes to make good advertisement.
Reflect on the process of creating a TV Show Pilot: Provide the logline for your original screenplay and connect your costume designs and ad campaign to the story you created... why did you design what you designed based on the story? Tell, too, about the TV Show Pilot you filmed and edited with your group... what was it like to work with a script and what types of shot(s) do you feel brought the show to life most?
"Who did it and why", I put regular clothing someone would wear at night to relax or are wearing something just to run to the liquor store to buy snacks. i did that because it was late at night when the three brothers got their house robbed. all in one night. my grouped dressed lazy.
What are some of your biggest psychological barriers when it comes to making films? Share your ups and downs of filmmaking on your blog, and how you plan to continue to grow in the second half of the 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 cu together and what effect you hope for it to have on your audience. It looks really good with all the lighting. Since our film was about people getting murdered we added a red gel to give like a violent color. so its kinda cool. I want people to get confused and have to think about who died first to last.
Soon, you'll be pitching an idea for a feature film in this class. What genre do you think you'll focus your creativity on? Why are you drawn to this genre? What do you find most interesting about this genre? What would you hope others would get from your work if you were to create films in this genre?
The genre i would like to focus on is thriller. I always liked watching movies with thriller because it draws me to watch it.
There is a movie called seven and i loved it because how crazy that movie was and the ending was the best part. I want people to enjoy watching it.
Describe your most recent shoot recording a music video. Which song did you choose and what type of concept or mixture of concepts did you capture. Describe what you the final product looks like and how you'd define it in regard to "documentary," "low concept," &/or "high concept." What are you most proud of with this project?
We chose fire burning by Sean Kingston and it was a high concept song. The final concept was a high concept because there was no story with characters it was just dancing through the whole video. I am really proud of the dances we made up in the end.
