School montage

Using the story board shown below i have drawn within each box how a shot will be shown. This is used to allow the shot to run more smoothly.
(insert story board )
Here I have filmed a montage of a typical school day.

Using the assessment criteria I have made sure I have followed the following 3 points:

  1.  Holding a steady shot – To ensure my shots were steady I used a tri-pod in every shot, this also enabled me to do different type of shots from different heights and angles.
  2. Framing a shot – making sure my model was the main focus and central of most shots. Also when she walk up and past on the left that she also enters the next shot from the left to keep the consistency their.
  3. Shooting a variety of different shot distances – trying to get different distances, using long shots to show the scene and surrounding area and close ups to show the emotion of the model.

Strengths 

  • Transitions flow effectively.
  • different uses of shots and heights
  • Steady framed shots

Weaknesses 

  • Speed up the shots and the transitions of cutting speeds- resulting in more shots being shown, for example could include lunch.
  • More close ups to show the emotion of the school day

This tasks has enabled me to learn more skills on premier pro, such as including sound on a shot ( school bell ) also i was able to zoom in to a particular shot to create more suspension ( zooming in to clock ). This will result in being bale to work on premier pro a lot quicker and add in more effective skills next time.

Finalising the preliminary task and evaluation questions

 

Here is my product meeting agenda and a plan of which type of shots I would like to include.

Click on agenda to see full image.

Here I have used a new editing app called adobe premiere pro and I used a short script and created an video of different uses of camera angles.

  • In my video I have used different camera angles in my video such as a low angle medium close up, close-up, extreme close-up, medium shot and a medium long shot and a track. Finishing with an long shot when leaving the room.
  • I used these techniques to create a sense of the atmosphere and the scene and how the people emotions were expressed at these times. For example, I used a close up on point when Patrice was walking out of the room as it showed he felt dreadful that she felt the present wasn’t wanted. The track was used to follow the actor out of the door efficiently with little movement.
  • I have learnt to use the following continuity editing rules, to improve my videoing skill techniques, such as the 180 degree rule where you do not cross over the line of action between two people or events interacting on the screen, allowing the conversation to flow smoothly and make more sense to a viewer. Also, shot reverse shot where I was able to get the reactions to the lines being said.
  • I used these rules to interact conversations and allow them to flow efficiently whilst being able to see the point of view/ reaction of the other person without words being said.
  • I have learnt to use the following tools/techniques in Premiere Pro including: marking in and marking out of a clip, use of a marker to add clips on to one another effectively.
  • I used these tools to enable my video to run smoothly, marking in and marking out meant there was no jumps between the clips adding on, use of the marker also meant I could move to the exact point to find where it was exact same movement in both clip so the clips joint onto one another.
  • If I was to do this project again I would do some things differently, I would record more clips so had plenty of angles to film at. And I would’ve done the track shot more than once.
