New arty project

Just started planning a new arty project which i have previously mentioned.

 

Currently i have a shot list and I’m compiling a mood board for said project. I also have a list of cast and crew involved and have been brushing up on tutorials for post-production. Hopefully talking to prospective actors next week then the wheels will start turning on the production process.

Foundation Degree – What i’m doing at the moment

Completed my Foundation Degree. Finished with a Merit which I more than happy with.

I am now planning some arty projects which i have had on hold for a while so hopefully more to come from them soon.

 

In other news last week i attended a student film premiere in Lichfield, Which was to showcase the student films of the Foundation Degree and the BSc in Film production.

Both films were great the first was a very original time travel story which was very well done considering i have been informed of the problems during production. The second was a modern day remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 film Rear Window and was expertly done. The latter has actually inspired me to revisit old films and since have been watching some old Grace Kelly films.

Hopefully i will be filming in the next few weeks as soon as i’ve sorted some actors and locations.

Colour Correcting/pushing RGB curves.

So when i filmed the latest video for the shave doctor i knew i would have to do some colour correcting.

The space we were filming in was small so there was no room for lighting. The only lighting were the florescent tube lighting of the room we were filming in.

 

This left massive dark patches on the footage which made the whole shot look too dark as the background happened to be black.

I added RGB curves to said clip in the edit and spent about 20 minutes tweeking the settings till i was happy with the footage.

The end outcome is exactly what i wanted, the footage looks natural and well lit.

This is definitely the most i’ve pushed RGB curves with footage and its paid off.

Shave Doctor Tutorial Video/Delivering footage.

Today i filmed what will be the third video i’ve done for The Shave Doctor.

 

This video was a single camera tutorial consisting of the shave doctor performing a cutthroat shave on a client.

The video will hopefully be up by the end of the week.

 

After filming i attended a meeting with a newer client of which i cannot name as the videos i am shooting for them are for a new project. The footage i delivered was from the monkey forest which i filmed Saturday. The footage was well received and i will be filming for them again tomorrow.
