- We worked on understanding and practicing the special roles of interviews.
- We discussed lighting, sound, camera position, and being interviewer and interviewee.
- We practiced syncing up audio in iMovie so that we can use off-camera, better audio.
- Remember, so much goes in to getting good interview material. Setup is huge, as well as knowing all the different roles in such an endeavor.
- Remember that part of your job is to make sure your subject is represented as best as possible.
- You can use 'spikes' in your audio tracks to help sync up audio.
- Using a tool to get off camera audio (best is your phone or a mic of some kind), capture audio of yourself or someone else reciting a poem or some other dramatic reading (consider something original if you are feeling inclined).
- Work to put together a narrative story for this project (think of storyboarding to get the best work).
- Keep the project under 3 minutes (as much as possible), and make sure your video shots represent the tone of the dramatic audio reading.
- Consider using any other sound effects, etc to make your work even better.
- Your Rough Draft is due on Tuesday (or at least your storyboard), and I may be able to give another week to those of you who are taking this very seriously and looking to use this for submission or other purposes.
