First Video Assignment

Video Project 1

Mr. Mitchell

Make a 3-5 minute-movie that showcases the camera shots and skills you have learned in Video Production the first two weeks. Do not go over five minutes in length.

Videos must be creative and original.
All shots must be white balanced.
Story must have a beginning, middle, end and contain dialogue.
All shots must be in focus.
All shots must be steady with proper headroom.
You must have at least one six shot sequence. I will explain this in class.
You must include the Rule of Thirds, Leading the Subject, and Framing where appropriate.
You can work with one other person on this project, but you each need to edit your own version of the video.
When you are done with your project you will upload your video to MiniDv tape and we will have an in-class screening day.

The following shots must be used at least once to receive an A grade :
CU, MCU, MS, LS, ELS, Steady Trucking, Steady Panning, POV, Steady Dolly, and Heads in Tails Out.

Extra Credit Shots:
Selective Focus
Rack Focus
Zoom In and Dolly Out

The answer is Elf of course. I said that to a long bearded gentleman while I was on vacation. He laughed (luckily).
