The green screen clinic was one of the two long clinics, the other long clinic was adobe premiere pro. The reason they use the type of green colour is because we have no traces of that kind of colour in our skin so it won’t clash, or you could use a blue colour if you are wearing green. at the end we got to crop shia LaBeaouf into a drone video i will show you that in my video.
This is meant to be the hardest clinic. It is so advanced that film makers use it, adobe premiere pro is an editing software. It is a hard thing for our computers to run so put your battery on best performance and plug it in so that it makes running adobe premiere pro smoother. I will explain all of what i learnt in the video so it will be a bit longer.
I missed the day the class did this clinic but luckily Ben H and Will S volunteered to help me catch up which was kind of them, In this clinic i learnt that zoom cameras are meant to pick up audio in front of it not behind it. there is a different way to turn the mic on compared to normal cameras you need to lift it up, you also need to lift it up when charging or else it wont charge. i will explain some other stuff in the video.
Royalty free music is music that is copyright free, copyright is when a song or something else has been made and the person who made it doesn’t want it to be used by another person. we talked about a game that has copied a dance and a song that has copied a tune. in the video i will talk about a website you can use and what we did in that lesson.
The school provides 2 types of wireless mics, the lapel and wireless hand held. There are 2 of each mic because they are very expensive. When you get the lapel there are 2 cases one is named the transmitter and the other is receiver. i will explain what they are in the video, i will also talk about the hand held.
In the shotgun mic clinic, we learnt that normal camcorders aren’t meant for great sound quality, but the shotgun mics are. The faults of a shotgun mic are that is extremely sensitive to wind, it also can be very annoying in hallways because it picks up tiny sounds bouncing of the wall.
In the audio booths clinic we learnt about the rules. There was lots of rules so i will tell you about them in the video. We also learnt a little bit about the schedule that we will be using in term 2. The schedule is about how long you can stay in the booths you put your name in one of the ten minute slots then you are booked for that time. We manly use it in term 2 because that’s when we do our films.
In this clinic we learnt that 60% of your time is spent planning 10% production and 30% editing. A story board is like a visual of what your thinking. A shot list is a list of every shot, how long it takes and the audio. Remember that it has to be very detailed so if someone picks it up they should see what you are trying to achieve.
when you are presenting your piece to camera you need to:
- put the camera to eye line
- use the notes you take
- use a storyboard or script (script can take longer)
At the end we chose a tongue twister and said it to a camera. i will show you the video of me saying the tongue twister in the video below
In this clinic we learnt 6 rules of photography, i will tell you what they mean in the video.
- Rule of thirds.
- balancing elements.
- leading lines
- view points
After learning what they meant we got put into pairs. Each pair got a camera, our goal was to take one picture representing each rule.
