Lights… Camera… In-Action…

Raptors in the kitchenHi everyone. Here’s a primer for next week’s shenanigans.

As mentioned, you will be filming your ‘scene-stealers‘ (and mahoosive thanks to Ms Lynch of Blairgowrie HS for sharing the idea!) so you’d better be prepared/ready… here’s how:

  1. Choose a scene from a film you will recreate…
  2. Find the script (10 Great Websites to Download Movie Scripts) or transcribe the scene/sequence you have chosen
  3. Look closely at the use of cameras (shots, angles, motion), and also any deliberate lighting effects
  4. Storyboard your own version
  5. Film (you can use your phone(s)/Eng. Dept. iPads/DSLR), but don’t get too hung up on the quality at the moment… it is recreating the shots that is the focus
  6. Edit (using any software you can get access to, like Windows Movie Maker in school, or YouTube editor online)
  7. Get ready for the premiere!

We’ll be working on 1, 2 and 3 in class on Monday, but you can jump straight to 4/5 if you do some preparation between now and then. 🙂

As ever, leave a comment if you have any questions.
