So we’ve decided on the story idea written by Vanessa which can be found here. It’s a simple idea but I think our group can translate it well into a short film. The film only has two main characters so casting shouldn’t be too much of a headache. The only thing we must keep in mind when we’re having auditions is to look for actors that can convey a lot of emotion through their facial expressions.

And so today Robin talked about the different roles in film-making.
There’s the producer/production company who is basically in charge of overseeing the production of the film, from pre-production to post-production.
Finance Team, Production Manager
In charge of the film’s vision, storytelling, creative decisions, communicates with the actors and interpret the script with the actors.
Director of Photography
In charge of the image. Ideally working together with the Director. Lighting and Exposure decided by them.
Roles DOP, Cam Operator, Cam Assist[Focus Puller, Grip, Best boy/Girl]
The sound designer creates the aural conception of the film, working with the supervising sound editor.
Roles : Recordist, Boom Swinger
We were to decide within our group on whose going to do what. So Basically Benji’s going to be the director, Manal’s both the producer and in charge of sound. Vickie’s in charge of production design and lighting. And I’m the DOP and camera operator. I’m pretty sure that everyone will do their part to the best of their abilities, I know I will try!
I’m quite excited actually, I have to start watching lots of films in order to get inspiration for my role as the DOP.
A number of things were discussed and learned in class today. KONY 2012 is one of them.
Couple of points from the discussion:
KONY 2012 -
- Has no problems in drawing attention to itself because that’s what it’s set out to do in the first place.
- It is a collection of bits, sometime random, more often not.
- It utilises home video (for this it’s connected to things that we’re studying now. A lot of different bits that make a whole singular piece.
Apart from going through the KONY video, we learn how to embed Vimeo videos to our IM blogs. I was kinda stumped on how to do this before class. But I know how to do it now!
Seth talks about how we might need to change the way we communicate our practice; the roughness is part of the work, but it’s not and issue.
