New York Film Academy 3rd day
Till one today we had Open Pre-Production Time. Which means you have to make sure everything is set for the Mise-en Scene for this weekend. I also worked on the script and storyboard for my Mise-en Scene.
Hands on camera #3 Griffith Park (Ed Timpe)
For hands on camera today we had to do a camera test in Griffith park. I was partnered up with Favour from Nigeria and Andrew from Russia. Favour is great to work with but Andrew is another story. He is a really nice guy but he doesn't speak English. So you have to explain things over and over and over and over. Which took away a lot of time for us to practice. And I don't think it is his fault but I do think NYFA is to blame for not making sure everybody is at the same level in English when it comes to classes. Besides that being a little frustrating I also got stung by a bee. Man that hurts as hell! I won though because the bee is dead and I survived! YaY!!
Hands on Camera #4 (Ed Timpe)
After having dinner with Ike, Chris and Thomas (who thank God! asked me to be in their crew. This is essential for the projects you shoot outside of school like the Mise-en Scene where you need to work in crews) we headed back to NYFA for or Hands on Camera Class where we learned about lighting. It got a little frustrating because we couldn't get it going for a while plus we were all pretty tired from the shoot that afternoon in the hot burning sun. But during the break Chris, Ike, Ed and I had a great conversation about how Hollywood is changing and how big companies are filing for bankruptcy. And the development or maybe even revolution Canon created when "accidentally" adding the Film feature to the DSLR's. Ed is a great teacher and a fun guy to have conversations with.
Well that's it for today. It's late and I'm exhausted. See Ya'll!
