Interview Composition

BLOG POST:

The between the two is that a host or reporter stays out of sight of the camera. Host/Reporter asks questions about the person who is being interview. The interview or the person in the camera is the one that answers the questions, the person does not look directly to the camera, the person look to the reporter which could be standing the left or right of the camera without being seen. The background of the interview should be a place that describes the topic of the interview or the characteristic of the person. Never shoot of a background that does not have much details to it that describes the video. Look room is the surrounding of the shoots/video, the space between the camera and the interview or the host.

The most important of making video and make it a success and look entertaining to the viewer is that you gotta put a lot of details to make it look interesting for the viewer. It also has to do with the shoots, taking some good shots for the video is like the most important thing of the interview. Background audio must be also good so that the viewer watch the whole video instead of watching it for 10sec and leave.

Under The Blood Red Sun

This film was filmed by Director, Mr. Tim Savage and Associate Producer, Mrs. Mardi Savage.
Both of them was inspired to make a film about the attack on Pearl Harbor on Hawaii. This film took them almost 10 years to achieve and be ready to publish on public or sell it to make some money. Finding some people to be in the film or help them film, get some equipments like camera. Finding the characters wasn't a problem for them, only the character of the Japanese young boy that It was hard to find the person that fits for this character from the book. This attack was against the Japanese, they attack the U.S territory which was Hawaii. There were many mix people from different country like the main character which was the young boy, this boy was a Japanese. His fisher dad was arrested and taken into this place were many more people were there, then they were sent to the other island. Grandpa also got taken away from them for some reason, maybe because he was Japanese

One question I asked was about the characters, It wasn't that easy finding the character of the Japanese kid, I guess he's the main character. As of what I heard from mrs. Mardi, they've spent 10 years looking for the right character that match the book's character. With the other characters, most of them was easy to find, about 3-4 months for these characters.

Cinemagraph



Cinemagraph is an animated GIF video clip that give illusion to mess with your brain. Cinemagraph is not very difficult to make once you understand how it works and how to make it look very good. Basically it is an looped video with some editing include to it to get the cinemagraph action. You well have to take video shots and choose from one of them, a very nice one to get this cinemagraph look good to the viewers. Creating cinemapgraph is not really hard, first you must take a video of something that one object is moving and the rest is just an image. Second get the video on your computer and start editing. The process is taken in to Final Cut Pro.

For the first attempt, I wanted to make it look very nice and clean as I can, I was confident. The person looks like he is moving, to give the viewer of what he is doing. My class did this all together to capture one of the student to be the model (Luca). We used our smart phones to get the capture because we weren't able to use the expensive cameras. It was very hard to capture the video because our phones has to be really stable, I used the table and the hydroflask in the back, but the table was moving a little. My first attempt was not the perfect but it was acceptable. I just need to improve my editing, my camera and get a stabilizer for the camera and i will be all good.
