Prelim Montage

 

This is my rough montage of a student discretely passing notes around the school, I based it on a story board I created which guided the construction of my montage. Tho not the best work ever made it turned out fairly good thanks to good use of cinematography, video editing (Particularly in terms of shot length and speed) with  and sound editing which I effectively used to condense one whole day into a few minutes.

Pros:

  • Editing flowed well.
  • Scene went well with the chosen music.
  • Good use of composition.

Cons:

  • Needs more kinds of shots.
  • Some cuts are quite weak.
  • Meaning can be lost at times.

Prelim Continuity Task

  • I have used the following camera techniques…use of symmetry, close ups, extreme close ups, mid shots two shots, match on action, shot reverse shot and over the shoulder shots.
  • I used these techniques to create a sense of/that… the two characters have an awkward and straining relationship where one person is cleanly more invested than the other..
  • I have learnt to use the following continuity editing rules… the 180% rule, the shot reverse shot, eye-line match and match on action.
  • I used these rules to… keep the flow of the scene as well as keep everything consistent so the scene makes sense and does not jar viewers.
  • I have learnt to use the following tools/techniques in Premiere Pro…cutting tools and general continuity editing to cut from one thing to another in a way and at a time that makes narrative sense and does not break the pace of the scene.
  • I used these tools to…cut shots at the right place and time to make the scene play smoothly without taking out the audience.
  • If I was to do this project again I would do some things differently,…such as picking a better location with more space to get a wider and variety of shots and distances.
