Cutting back the Introductions

 

Some feedback from my classmates and friends after watching my current Rough cut was that the introductions drag on a little to long. I definitely see this now.

Current Rough Cut of Introductions.

 

If I want to make a 15 minute piece, it will definitely have to be shorter than my current one of 3 minutes. And that’s just with 3 people at the moment and I still have 1 or 2 more people to interview, if I continue with how I’m introducing the interviewee’s now the opening part will be around 5 minutes!

So my plan over the next week is to try and edit down the opening of the documentary to around 1-2 minutes and find away of connecting everyone together in a nice cohesive manor.!

 

Giving a hand

It’s been a busy few days of the easter holidays so far, I was a little ahead on my own project so I offered a helping hand to two of my class mates Stephen and Naomi. I had told Naomi I’d help her when I recommended my friend Niamh for the role in her short film. I had the role of Director of Photography/Camera Op for both Stephen and Naomi’s films. We filmed all of Naomi’s on Monday and Tuesday this week, bearing the crazy weather conditions and yesterday I helped Stephen shoot a portion of his project.

Here’s some pictures from both shoots:

It was pretty fun, but now it’s time to get my head stuck back into my project.

As I don’t have my last two Interviews till the 2nd week in April, my plan over the next week is to begin editing together the 3 Interviews I already have filmed. I will do another post this week about how I’m editing and a little insight into what my workflow is like.
