I think if I think I'll end up thinking too hard
Boys, boys, boys. I thought having these two tech savvy heads was going to play to my advantage. Well, it would, if both of them actually managed to be at a group meeting at the same time, for the whole time!
So this morning Mike and I touched base with our parts of the essay, and [...]
What an awesome surprise!
Today we sadly had our last class for FilmTv and also our self and peer assessments, but more importantly our rough cut presentations. I never look forward to having to grade myself, and dreaded having to grade my group members even more. However, for this subject, I feel really confident about the [...]
So in the editing session i did the other day, I just about finished the cutting of shots part of our rough cut.
One thing that is regrettably made clear a little bit more for each edit session, is that we really should have filmed a few more shots from varied angles.
Emily and I watched [...]
“This is not what I signed up for…”
Thankfully I didn’t find myself saying that.
On the whole, I don’t actually think there was a substantial difference between the theory we did and our practical film shoot. The practice shoots and all the equipment sessions we had during class definitely prepared us well for our [...]
Straight after our final Integrated Media class, Daniel and I decided to track down Mike (who was somewhere in RMIT) since he naughtily hadn’t come to class!
In the brief group meeting we had, we constructed our plan of attack for our essay and even managed to start writing a bit of it.
We thought the [...]
Wow, the end of Integrated Media has now arrived! … Well, for lectures and classes at least. And like the many media subjects before it, this last tute was spent doing our participation self-assessments.
As part of this, we had to create a graph illustrating the rise (or fall) of our progressive learning. I think having [...]
Myself and Wennie spent some time before class doing some editing, so having our tute conveniently in the editing suites enabled us to continue on doin’ our thang.
Today’s editing session brought on a wave of realization and learning upon me. It has taken up until this day in the editing suite, as I’m trying to [...]
Complexity does not come from building complex shapes…
Korsakow is not a branching tree structure.
The less something narrates, the more possibilities of connections it has. We are applying the same logic to film making in a Korsakow film. Like Lego bricks, as individual fragments they don’t have much to say, but because of being able to [...]
Sound mixing & Colour grading
choose a scene…
analyse the rhythm
the talking over (interrupting)
- To elongate/compress time, you must avoid cutting on action
audio levels monitoring
adio keyframe to 100th of a frame
peaking at -6 to -10
- When person A is talking, cut to person B before person A [...]
“I’m the Director for God sake!”
Ok, so I didn’t actually find myself being that pretentious to have that phrase come out of my mouth, but I was the director for our short film, indeed.
As the director, I did find myself feeling a large sense of responsibility and as if everything was up to me, specifically [...]
