short film

Redland Green School Prom 2018

Last year for our year 10 sports dinner, I made a short fun video with some friends which went down really well on youtube. As a result, for this years year 11 prom I did the same thing and we made another short skit.

Similarly to last year, I filmed simply on my phone as it is more convenient and worked well as this year we did not end up having much time to film as we were in such a rush to get there but overall I am happy with the fun short video. Take a look! 

Have you seen last years video?

Extra Hours - Leo Molyneux Short Film

- The initial idea - 

had had this idea a few weeks ago from speaking to my friend (Leo M) in a PE video as we thought up this cool idea and had not been able to get the idea out of my head since. I kept getting new ideas for shots and wanted to shoot it as soon as possible.

I had quite a few things to get sorted such as timings, gear, lighting and a venue. Whilst it took me a while to find a venue which was cheap, had the right light and was available, I eventually managed to book out Ashton court Sports Center Sports Hall which ended up being perfect and just what I was looking for,

I and Leo are good friends and we actually ended up thinking up this idea during a PE lesson. Leo is a County U15's basketball player and is a very talented basketball player. It was fun to think up these cool shots and plan out each move. I had created a shot list mentally and knew how I wanted each shot to roughly look when we got to film. 

- Editing and Filming -

Quick Tip! 

When shooting video, using a skateboard can help simulate smooth slider shots but id possible, use soft long board wheels for better results!. 

Most of the shots were filmed with the Sigma 20mm ART which I hired so get some really nice wide shots on the shoot. I also used a simple caddie and skateboard to try and get the most stable shots possible and then when in post, stabilised the footage where I could. In post, my job was tough, as finding the right music and timing it all together, 

 . Whilst I am fairly new to video and still have much to learn, overall, I am very happy with how the shoot turned out and I can't wait to perhaps start a project from this or continue to experiment with video and see what I can create.
