KingdomBound Preview


Watch the video
This would be the preview of the project I am working on for admissons. The only reason this made it onto my blog is so they can see it because i am going to be off campus. It is not the final edit. It is not even close to the final edit so no bagging on my video skills unless its the shady camera work. The end. Music used by permission. thehungr

Well

Well I guess you could call today the first real class type thing I've done on the project so far. Today we went through the footage I shot on sat. at graduation. I was pleasantly surprised that it was somewhat good. It was kind of like reading a book. You know how to read a book but if someone explains to you what it takes to go into the reading of the book its super intense. and...i stink at metaphors.

I was never really taught how to video tape. I mean I took a class in high school and shot video for a year with my church. That would be the class I called tech services for my teacher in because he couldn't figure out how to turn the editing system on. Oh yeah and I taught my teacher about DI boxes in that class to. Joke. Casablanca Avio. Ha. Anyway it was really interesting to have my professor analyze what I shot in real language. Its one thing to have an eye for something and another to know why it looks good.

Anytime a professor beat boxes to illustrate a point..you know its going to be a good go at something (in his defense he's working on a big project and thus not getting a whole lot of sleep.) This is going to be extremely challenging and stretching but at least its going to be fun! And when I say challenging and stretching I mean in a good way. The only way to be able to snowboard black diamonds is to start on squares and fall trying.

Production Meeting

Well- we had our first production meeting today. We being my professor and I. It was great fun only to say that hey-let meet tomorrow at nine. Funny. I think the best part of the meeting was when he had to slide his notes under his office door because Houghton hadn't issued him keys yet. Go Houghton so typical.

Its coming to my attention that this project is going to stretch my knowledge of film and how it is done. I'm scared, nervous and excited all at the same time. Its going to be great haha.

In other news I spent the afternoon looking for transitions that I have on the G5 because Curt left them there. My favorite transition lately has been a thing called vapor across its really neat and it excites me because I just got it and installed it!!!! woot. I am really far far to excited about this. I'm a dork.

First Day

Wow-I guess this project is underway!

The first day of shooting started sat. at graduation. I realized I'm already am going to learn a ton! The day started off with what I assume will be typical...a production meeting to discuss shots etc. Definitely way more artistic than I'm used to. There is something a bit different from shooting kids puking than there is trying to get a good promo shot. I'm going to be learning so much. I'm really excited.
