Not sure if this is the right place to put this, but here’s a short little video I did for my cinema/ television production class. The only guideline for the project was that you had to edit by cutting on the actions. A lot of people basically did a “how to” kind of thing. I however, took a more…. unique, approach. It’s not perfect, there’s some lighting issues and some awkward edits towards the end. Overall though, I don’t think it turned out too bad.
Let me know what you think.
Can I embed on here?
I guess I can…
Fun times. The best thing about it is that it cuts well together. Good coverage. I’ll save you the “Why do you include a close-up of the water glass?” style breakdown, because it sort of looks like the purpose of the project was to block things out.
The aspect ratio is a bit off, probably related to your choice of export codex. I do not know what you recorded on but if it was card media, you should match the export codex to that card’s native media; if it was a tape, the problem could also be from digitizing the footage in a codex outside the footage’s native settings. Something to play around with.
I was confused when exporting it of what setting to use, so i asked one of the lab aides and she helped me. Once I watched it though, it was clearly stretched >.< I’ll probably re-export it at some point.
I am sorry for asking this but Polaris, do you expect someone else to post from your account? I mean, seeing that “—PolarisDiB” at the end of your post is really getting on my nerves. I can hardly focus on what you have written in your post unless its extremely long.
I am not a film maker but whenever I think of performing a task with hands, I think of Bresson. His camera usually dwells in the lower half of the body and the way he shoots the hands is so methodical. I was strangely reminded of the scene in A Man Escaped where the prisoner makes the rope in his prison cell while watching your video.
well thank you. that’s quite nice.
