Film Festival was the biggest thing probably. Otherwise not much.
Enrique Project- It’s been hectic with Instantly Involved and everything, but we just filmed Thursday and were filming tomorrow! After the festival, I have a whole new perspective on audio and acting. I realized that a lot of the project lacks in those areas. Now I am going to focus more on trying to get the lines how I want them, and use my external mic a lot more. We don’t have scripts past this point, so that’s my next job.
DMA internship- going great! Recorded men’s volleyball and women’s lacrosse and I’m doing soccer on Monday. I also edited for the first time too, so that was cool. They use FCPX so there is no difference for me. The video is not on their page yet, but will post a link to it in when it comes up here.
Summer Camp prep- As you can see from my Movie Camp post, I have advertised a lot. Granted a lot of the fliers are probably ripped down by now. I have made no other planning though, which is kind of worrisome
applying for internships and classes- Switched my classes! I’m NOT doing stagecraft anymore. I switched TA to Peer Tutor (basically the same thing) and Peer Tutor counts as a practical art, so I no longer have to take stagecraft. Now I’m taking PE. So it all cool now
PSA for Orchestra- no new ones yet. I’ll email him now lol
Video/Film Class- Just basic videos after the festival. Continuity Magic (Larsen spelled it with a J hahaha) where we did like split screens and stuff. Then we did a cutting on action video, where I did another chase scene. I also filmed Enrique Project during 7th period.
Film Festivals and Events- Eye light 2016! So I said it in my other post, but I won best trailer and suspense film. The film festival itself was really good. I missed the red carpet (thanks Ryan), but still had time to buy tickets and stuff. I had to get in my tux, but went open collar. When I got there, I was kind of waiting around a lot until someone from the press came to interview me. They were just standard questions. I can’t find the article yet, but ill add a link if I can.I walked into the theater and it was awesome. It was a full sized theater. Not like a makeshift mini one, but bigger than some theaters I’ve seen Hollywood films in. Mrs. Larsen was in the booth managing the different videos on the screen, and the first student film to play was a clip named “Best Trailer” and then Ryan and Lev showed up on the screen, and it was my trailer that played. From there on, I was happy. The first 7 films were pretty bad, with terrible cutting on action and dialogue, and then mine came and it was all glitchy, which was really annoying! It was played again at the end though (after voting for peoples choice 😦 may I add). The films got better and better as the festival went on, and I knew that I couldn’t win any of the other awards. But my film wasn’t for the festival, and it just couldn’t compete. I got certificates at the end and also and internship with a small studio, which was cool.
All in all it was a great experience! Oh and Directing Change results came back and I didn’t win anything. The quality of the videos from what I saw were a lot better than last year.
Social Media Videos- I might get a new phone camera app, so I’ll make better ones there with like pull focus and stuff.
Other News- No new news really. Life is sorta boring, all the interesting stuff has to do with friends or I already mentioned it.
Not a lot, see you in 3 weeks.
