Experiment with Green Screen

Summary: What I did was use one of David So’s youtube video and the Shia LaBeouf inspirational green screen video and combine it to make this video. I use the link at the bottom to tell me how to use the green screen. In this video I try to match Shia Labeoulf’s voice and the music in the back ground so like it’s saying something. I also tried to change David So’s video so I wouldn’t copy  it. And lastly, I added Shia Labeoulf face into the video so that my teacher would know that I can use the green screen

Film Storytelling Project

Summary:

What my team did is that me made a film about a certain serious person I know. The video is called “Fast and Serious” the title kinda explains itself of what the video is about. My team only had 3 weeks to do this project which included storyboard making, shot list creating, filming , and editing and blogging. I  made a film about person that is serious but he hasn’t figured it out that, so his friend helps him figured it out with flashbacks from the past times he got all serious.

Film:

Evidence:

  1. From 0:52 to 1:00 We wanted a dark spot so it would feel tense.
  2. From 1:27 to 1:28 I added a punching sound it was probably the best punching sound I could find.
  3. From 1:42 to 1:43 There was a light on the left side of the face.
  4. From 1:42 to 1:46 Nghia edited the video so that it went back and fourth. It was an easy job but it was my first time I did something like that.
  5. From 2:07 to 2:10 Our cameraman used a POV of Nghia facing up. And poured the snack on a piece of paper. It was a cool camera angle to do.
  6. Through out the video, we used the natural lighting to light up one side of the face, we had to find a window that would do this.

What I learned : I learned that film making is a difficult and long process. This film was very difficult to remember what you want on the film and film scene technique that is wanted. How I problem solved it was by having to scene shot list with me and having my camera man, Adam Findlay,to help me figure it out. Another problem was myself from laughing to much, I problem solved it by looking at the middle of the actor’s, Nghia Tran, face. Also, one last problem was the editing, the transition wanted and parts that I need to get rid of was rather a complex problem, my team solved with their skills that they learned in other areas that involved film making
