Removal (main project)

Preliminary Exercise

Tuesday, October 6, 2009


The point of the activity was to create a short 6-shot video clip which displayed some vital techniques used in filmmaking.

I believe our shot displayed some techniques well, such as using both wide and close-up shots to show the accident.

I would definitely re-shoot the terrible laughing shot that completely disorientates the viewer and was a complete accident. I would also make each shot lo0nger, to give the audience more time to see what is going on.

From doing this activity, I learned several vital filming techniques such as the 180 degree rule, match-on-action and the 30 degree rule.
