  • Yikes, Rough cut due 3 weeks from today, 5 best clips week before that. These next 2 weeks are intensive shooting time\n\nGrades published! Remember you get to drop one assignment; late papers get knocked down 20%. If you haven’t turned something in, it will hurt. Any questions about that?\n\nShot list brainstorm: We never formally did this. Good exercise before you go out is to brainstorm everything you’d like to shoot in a perfect world.\n\nWorried: Need More Technical Shooting Advice?\n
  • 8:30\nChoose one of these three docs to watch.\nExplain why we’re offering these three & who might want to watch what\n\nReporting Update - simple memo on the status of your project--what’s working, what isn’t working, what you’re planning next\n\n5-photo stories. Look at “Remember”; “God Has a Purpose”; “Nature Can be Cruel”; maybe “end of the road” (suicide)\n\n\n\n

  • 6-7:15\nBecker:\nHonor The Treaties:\n\n\nWorking With Clients:\nHow did you get the PPS gig?\nDid they like the first cut you gave them?\nDid you ever feel like they were asking you to tell the story in a way that wasn’t actually the best approach?\nWho comes up with the creative ideas, you, or the clients?\nHow are you going to get people to watch this film?\nWhat is its ultimate goal?\nTalk about marketing strategy\nIs B-roll important?  Really -- I don’t see why? Oh, now I get it.\n\nTime Lapse\nDolly Shots\n
  • 7:30 (After Break)\n\nThis offered some great lessons as you start to form your story or are trying to find focus.\nWhat stuck out for you?\n\nDon’t worry about her disparaging of promotional video\n
  • 7:30-7:45\nCharlene Strong Debrief\nWhat did you notice about how she told this story?\nNot the dramatic event that makes this story compelling - it’s what she reveals about her character - relationship with her father, husband - hinted at but not hit over the head - chooses what she says so carefully.\nSelf Critical\nThe power of this story to change legislation.\nWhat worked,  What was the structure of Charlene’s story -- lay it out on the board:\nDive in to inciting action\nChanges in her life it causes.\nGlosses over unimp parts in favor of revealing anecdotes (Taboo Game)\nBuilding into climactic event The Flood (W deets like Dog Swimming in the street)\nUnexpected twist Reveals what its really about: She cant see her spouse in the hospital\nDenumont (unraveling) the tapes.\n\n
  • Done by 8:45\n5 mins telling a story\nWhat did you like/dislike about that person’s story?\nKeep track on the board of common characteristics\n
  • Done by 9\n\nWe’re going to dive into hands on, but before we do, a few minutes of lecture\n\nThere are literally millions of work flows.  No single one is right. Depends on the camera you have, the software, where its going to be played.\nThere are a few main variables you should understand.\n\n
  • What your camera records onto\nDetermines Whether you just copy files or have to capture them in real time\nPluses and Minuses of each\n\n
  • Two sizes of HD, One size of SD (also widescreen SD) \nStill photos\nEverything is moving into 16:9 world. Best way to go.\nFor refugees project I had to crop my stills. You can put a black bar on the sides\n\n
  • Long story short, it doesn’t really matter, just keep it the same\n\nThis p means progressive\ni means interlaced\nDon’t worry about it!\n\n\n
  • Always shoot the same and match the way you shot when you import and edit.\n\n
  • There are literally hundreds of these but\nH.264 is magic -- what lets the HDSLR’s work\nProRes is for using H.264 footage in FCP\nSo is DVCPRO HD 720p, so its smaller (remember -- what does 720p mean?)\n
  • MOV is what comes out of DSLR’s \n\n
  • These are the settings vimeo recommends\n\n
  • 9-945\nGive them the handout with what they’re supposed to do \n\n
  • \n
  • What editing software are you planning to use?\nDo you have it?\nWhat technology concerns do you have?\nEditing Workshop reminder\n\n\n
  • Ask Class -- Can you think of examples of Addtnl media in Barzan\nCite examples of each in Barzan:\n\nFamily Pics (don’t be afraid to take video/pictures of photos\nArchived: Iraq, Pakistan, 9/11 Sound\nCC Photo of sillohette guy\nNew reports from Youtube\nFootage of Iran Iraq War\nCourt documents shot through camera\n\n\n
