After viewing our first take of The Locker Scene we noticed many students were making the common mistake of hosing. Hosing is when you stand in one spot and follow the action with the camera. It makes for really boring video! Here's an example:
We had a really great discussion on how we could make our video more visually interesting by incorporating different types of shots. We got inspired by this video featuring Danny Macaskill.
Talk about visually interesting! We're now taking some time to plan our production by creating our first storyboard. I can't wait to see take 2!
I tell people all the time I have the best gig in the world! I get to work with the most amazingly creative 6th, 7th and 8th graders at Netzaberg Middle School. This year we're looking forward to producing epic pieces of digital media in Video Production and conquering the world with our Lego Mindstorms in Programming!
