Bumping this thread
I recently finished Certificate III in Film and Television at TAFE here in Australia, and my TAFE class has put up some of our stuff to youtube, so you guys should check it out if you wanna kill some time lol.
All of these videos were done for an assignment that was basically constructed around learning how to light and shoot a simple short scene of two people talking. So most of them are pretty short, and some of them were purely made up on the spot, without even a script or any prior planning. We were just given the assignment, a basic storyboard and off we went.
You might see a few of them titled "The Meeting" and "The Alternative". "The Meeting" is basically a scene that's done outside so we could learn how to light during exterior scenes using scrims and reflectors. Unfortunately we had to reshoot our "Meetings" so many times, due to stuff being over-exposed, out of focus, and what not lol, which caused most of us to ignore putting much effort into lighting our exterior shots haha. These ones were the ones done on the spot, with no script or anything.
"The Alternatives" is more or less the same kind of thing, but its set before or after "The Meetings", but we to shoot it inside to do interior lighting, specifically a 3-point lighting set up (which involves a key light, fill light, and back light). Most of the Alternatives are better than our Meetings because our Alternatives were done AFTER our Meetings, which meant we had more of an idea of what we were doing lol. Surprisingly, this assignment really taught me a lot about when shooting a scene of two people talking; namely how to get enough footage to edit the film seamlessly. Anywho, thats pretty much all you need to know I think...http://www.youtube.com/user/TravkoreProductions#p/u
The two videos which I directed and camera operated are Battle of Minds and a Battle of Minds 2. Battle of Minds is actually the second one, my "Alternative", which I think is shot much better, and a big improvement over the first one.
I also "star" in a couple of the videos on there lol. The Mother of All Destiny's has me acting in it, its totally silly and fun. I looked like hell that day, my casting decision was short notice lol. I'm also in the "Kori's Super Awesome Gig" videos, playing myself (Kori)
. Yes, I mumble and what not, leave me alone >.>
So yeah, check 'em out
