THE PRELIMINARY; THEN TO NOW

T H E

S K I L L S The planning for Exit 24, the thriller opening (Left downwards) is far more extensive the for M.P.D, the preliminary exercise. This is because most obviously the research for the final piece was more important than the preliminar y, but also because from the preliminary I had learnt that when going on set it’s best to have a clear idea on what you are doing and why you are doing it because when on a limited time frame it’s best not to waste time on set trying to decide what type of shot you want, or what the actors motivation in for a particular scene. The animated storyboards (below) were featured in both films however the second one created for the thriller opening actually featured pictures from location, making filming that little bit easer because I knew where the camera needed to be and how the video should be edited.

E D U L C N O C TO I have learnt how to use new programs such as final cut pro and soundtrack pro as well as new equipment. My editing skills have been pushed to the max and my directorial thinking has been expanded. Never have I had to plan so much for such a shot amount of time and in that way, the course of creating these two openings has encouraged me to be innovative about my approach to filmmaking. My time management skills have improved form their previous high standard so much that when I have a task now I feel like the terminator. Also by being challenged by teachers and the course to use different programs and the technological media around me has made me more aware of all the interesting (and sometimes wacky) ways I can optimize what little knowledge I may have and work on expanding it. It has been a productive and influential process and I feel the work my team and I produced was at our best. J
