One thing I absolutely wanted to revise was the rape scene I envisioned for my film. I was unsure how to approach it seeing as it's a sensitive issue. To me, it felt unecessary to even include something of the sort in a revised film however I wanted to at least find ways to portray rape in a film without seeing the act. This will enable me to begin fuelling ideas for a refined and realistic film.
My first tutorial for this unit was based on the feedback given to me for unit 6. I received generally okay comments but more so a well worded detailed critique on the elements used within the entirety of my outcomes. My final outcome was definitely what I described to be at the start of the project which generally set me back. I also spent a lot of time explaining myself as aposed to showcasing the film as you would in a film festival. My hinderance with actors schedules was definitely something that could have been avoided by setting a definitive schedule for filming as opposed to working here or there. The setbacks were ultimately outwaying the positive outcome and I was beginning think about avoided the project all together. My tutor suggested I revisit the idea and refine it as I had so much time, effort and research put towards the project that it would be a shame to let go of it that quickly. She was completely right! With that, I decided to go back to square one and think about alternatives to situations that previously occured with Unit 6.
Learning how to do things ON MY OWN
Attain skills a camera man usually has incase I he cannot shoot on certain days
- A frequent problem I had was scheduling with the camera man so an aim of mine is to have full capability of using equipment for long periods of time.
- Again, scheduling with actors was a huge issue so being able to create something which could reflect the main idea, just without actors. A piece my tutor suggest I view was of a classmate who created a video piece that surrounds the theme of identity.
Buy equipment to attach to a rig so I'm able to record dialogue without the use of an extra person/boom pole.
