Directors Commentary on "Ellipsis"
For "Directing," I was asked to film a short and then edit it in my Project and Portfolio 5 class.
What is Full Sail's Project and Portfolio classes? Basically, they exist to help us fill our portfolios, so we're ready upon graduation.
From Full Sail's website:
"Project and Portfolio IV: Digital Cinematography
The Project and Portfolio IV: Digital Cinematography course combines hands-on learning experiences with summative and formative portfolio assessments. In this course, students will shoot and edit a four- to six-minute video. In this video, students will demonstrate the proper use of color and mood in lighting, location selection, art design, and camera techniques in relevance to their story. During this process, students will submit location-scouting photos, lighting plots, legal documents, and storyboards to demonstrate their understanding of production and storytelling process."
The script for this project came from my screenplay writing class.
My color correction for a short romantic type film I'm working on. Because it was humorous and romantic, I change the cool green color to a warm, red/blue color. The footage was originally shot with my canon 55mm f/1.8 lens, which tends to make footage green and cool. Normally, I am a huge fan of this but not for this type of film.
