Directing Short Films/Operating Camera
DIRECTING SHORT FILMS I intend to continue shooting short films throughout the quarter in order to develop directing techniques. My current projects have helped me refine my process and I'd like to continue this through further practice. These projects will explore the stages of bringing script to screen, as I break down scripts, create shot lists, storyboards, and setup plans, shoot and edit my short films. I will also focus on expanding my ability to work with actors and on refining lighting skills. OPERATING CAMERA The other side of this ongoing project involves familiarizing myself with the cameras. The JVC DV-500 and DV-700 cameras are similar to what the pros are using these days. Therefore, skill on these cameras will be invaluable, and the video they take is of excellent quality. I plan to tape my Drama 212 (stage lighting) class projects in order to get more experience with these cameras.
