Personal Reflections of my video projects
In the news package project I learned a lot of different interviewing techniques. I learned that I should make questions that get be long, and very good responses. I learned, about how to frame a shot, using the rule of thirds, and putting my subject in the right corner. I learned when trying to set up my shot for the interview, I should give my subject nose room. I learned about sequences for shooting B Roll. For my interview and B roll my partner and I took B roll, and interviewed a student in AP Studio Art, Rachel. My partner and I had some trouble getting the interview together, because the class were doing installation, which basically means they had to leave the classroom. My partner and I learned how to work around it. We included Rachel in our B roll with a sequence. I also, learned the importance of testing my materials before I leave the classroom, because that called for some difficulty. I had to redo my interview, at first because I did not frame the subject properly, but I learned from it and now have improved on shooting techniques. The editing process was not as easy. I had to find my best sound bites from my interview,and I had to use B Roll. I learned how to create sound bridges while editing, and I learned the importance of natural sounds. I really enjoyed the project and had fun conducting the interviews with my friend Max.
