The I. Grant
'The I. Grant' is a 6-mins experimental short film with 4 seperate parts integrated together, each of which is approximately 1mins30sec. 'The I. Grant'-- the Influence Grant, is a grant for college students in the 'Sea City' whom believe they have found their goals and need financial support. The only rule of the grant is that the applicants must present to the grant committee how a bad experience had influenced them and how they turned the negative into positive. This is a 6-mins story about 4 college students' goals and influences. The major scenes will be taken in Gas-work park, U-district, and some indoor shots. My script doesn't have a lot of lines. I decide to focus on learning video-photography, how to operate a MiniDV, how to bring scripts into scenes, use scenes and images to communicate meanings instead of explicit wordings, and how to edit a short video using Final Cut Pro. Also, background music will be a key component of the short film, so maybe it turns out will be more like a MTV with some lite dialogue.
