The idea behind my film blog was to give an honest account of my progress during the early phases of my movie making career. This includes hanging out my dirty laundry for all to see. Including any film experiments – good or bad!
I’ve just been messing with some still images I took a few weeks back. I’ve added music, narration, titles and appropriate transitions to try to give an emotional feel. The idea was to give me the chance to play with editing and colours using Pinnacle Liquid and Adobe Photoshop. The project gives me a good example of how influential music and subtle image movement can be in a movie.
I’m sure I’ll look back at this in the non-too distant future and wonder what I was thinking at the time. Right now though it’s another step in the right direction and pushes me into picking up the camera and filming more!! The more I film and edit, the more I learn. I need to identify my style and perfect it!
Wish me luck – I’m filming a family wedding in August. Thought this would be an excellent opportunity to learn some hands on skills – on the fly! Mind you, when I get enough time to stop and think about what I’m about to let myself in for, my knees shake.
Other news – my You Tube music video project is back on. It’s been very difficult working with the 50+ dancers that I was going to use for the project so I decided to down scale. The project has a slightly different mechanic now but so much easier to manage. This means there’s a very good chance it will get made very soon. Watch this space!
I’ve just moved house recently and keeping the blog up to date has been very difficult. However, fingers crossed, we’re all settled in now and I can upload regular updates on my progress as an aspiring writer and director.
Thanks for visiting!
