New York Film Academy 9th day
This morning we had to check in our camera and lights. We also had to turn in our film so it can be processed. I though my nerves would be calm by now but I just keep worrying about if I did everything right. I'll just have to wait and see I guess. Digital is so much less stressful then film :D
Director's Craft #4 (Josh Adler)
In class we talked about how our shoot day went and if we had any trouble. Josh was a little late because he was stuck in traffic after voting. But he wasn't the only one who was late. A lot of classmates didn't wait until the last minute to turn in their stuff. But contrary to what I did when in college in Holland I was here very early. The things you learn/would do different when you grow up ;)
We watched some more shorts and debated why the director made certain choices. We also learned about some rules you have to keep in mind when shooting. Like breaking the line and the 33 degree rule. Look em up if you want to know what their all about.
Hands on camera #6 - Screen/shoot lighting ex. (Ed Timpe)
With Ed we talked about our projects as well and we talked about what we can expect on the Universal lot for our project that we'll be shooting on the Universal lot in Europe. Too bad the NY lot is not available because they'll be shooting the new Spiderman movie there. Can't wait to get on the lot! Have to come up with something to shoot though,… It either has to be an exchange or a chase. I think I'm going for the exchange.
Writing #2 (Sharri Hefner)
We saw a few more shorts and talked about the story that was told in those shorts. We were told about antagonists and protagonists and the character arcs. We did a few in class assignments. Which I kinda hate because you have very little time and the class was so late in the day and my brain is on stand by at that time. So it makes it a little harder to come up with stories etc. But still I learned a lot.
