This week we learned how to edit our One shot story. It was one of the most frustrating things I have ever tried to complete, but in the end i figured out how it all works and I felt accomplished completing the project, it may not be the best thing ever but throughout time I'm sure ill get better. My favorite part of the week is working on the career catalog. I like it because we are studying on how and what a director does and that is my dream job.
I'm glad you're seeing connections to your goals with the work we're doing and proud of your perseverance with the editing endeavor. Lots of bits and pieces in the art we call film. What specific goal(s) do you have for the next project that might aid in lessening your frustration?
The specific goals I had for this week was to open up and not be to shy to ask questions when i need help with something involving the project. The more I ask the better I understand.
This week was a lot easier than last week. I completed all most of my work and i had less of a struggle with the film editing. One standard I felt like I did this week was A2.7 I felt like I did that one because we created original work on our creative writing journal number three this week. We used our skill to write an extended ending of something we saw based off of our own perspective. The creative journal will continue being my favorite thing to do in class.
The most frustrating thing about after affects is the text box no matter how hard i try to place is in a certain spot is manages to mess up every time. The most helpful is knowing what all the keys on the keyboard can do because it can make the shot stop or get cut it helps a lot. My biggest success would have to be the commercial I proved to myself that all the past projects were hard but practice makes perfect and i was able to make it quick. This program will help in my future because is getting me used to using a computer in general knowing how future is getting more involved with devices rather then paper your able to learn a lot. It could help both careers journalism and directing.
Film is a unique language because not only do you get to hear the tone of there voice but you are able to view the the emotions and movements of how each actor feels about what exactly they are trying to say. Also because its easier to understand if you can't tell how the actor feels by his action then you can hear in the tone of his voice.
After watching Metropolis I have come to actually like the color of black and white films. I think it makes the movie more intense and entertaining.
Understanding montage is amazing because now every little scene that shows I see why it has more of a meaning to it with the dramatics and the message its sending out.
I'm applying it to my own film making by using the texts in the middle of my movie to explain whats going on.
Over the term I have improved by editing better with slow motion fast motion everything we see is put into my creativity.
how much do you think this class will really help you with your career choice?
History has made a huge impact on how films are made today. Film Noir for example is used a lot.The fact that the films today are better with seductive woman and crime and dark shadows is huge it brings more of an audience from all ages. When i go to the movies now I realize that it does take a lot of work to create each scene and it makes me so excited to hopefully be apart of creating a film myself.
You are the best director and to be honest even though we don't like the ideas we try to have fun with what we have and we try our best to go with it but sometime there kinda embarrassing.
Best director because you are a really good director. Good job.
After the college presentation it really got me excited for starting my career. I am going to do about 2-3 summer programs for The Academy of San Francisco and NYU. I am still a junior so I have a whole year to still get ready but you have to start early for your dreams to come true. (Blog Reflection 10)
My studio experiences were quite interesting I never thought that lighting and noise was so important. Also the cameras were insanely DIFFICULT to work with technology is very annoying. Working in the studio is very different from working outside.I would rather choose to work outside than in the studio i feel like the outside lighting looks more natural for the characters.
One movie moment I will always remember was in the film "Friday Night Lights". The director had a creative idea to make the main team lose the championship.Most movies end with the team to over come challenges and win. This will always be a memorable movie because reality can always be added to a film without even realizing it
My music video was the hardest thing i ever worked on in my life. My group was probably the reason but we still got through it. My music video was ended up being low concept. The music video is supposed to describe the song by being "upside down". It creates the theme by using emotions.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
