Project 2 : One Day

Project 2 is a crowd-sourced video all shot on one day

Wednesday September 21, 2016
The Last Day of Summer in the Northland
All students will take the day to shoot video in northland locations of their choice.
Please plan to shoot something at each of these times of day: Early, MidMorn, Noon, Afternoon, Evening, and Night. When you shoot a moment in the day, try to look for interesting light and shot types. Examples of shots, angles and lighting:
Do your best to capture a variety of shots… such as an establishing wide shot, a medium shot, a close up and several angles of the setting. Look for texture and intimacy in your angles. Try to capture a sense of place, but also a human perspective. Ask for permission to shoot people, or shoot from an angle that is more anonymous. Keep shots fairly short (no longer than 10 seconds?). We don’t want to overload everyone with too much footage to go through.
After you finish the Wednesday shoot, look at your video clips and select the best from each time of day to share in the class folder. Please try to get stuff uploaded to share before the next week, ok?
Upload the best of your clips to the appropriate folder…
Look for the folders inside the Project2_OneDay folder on Google Drive
On THE NEXT WEDNESDAY, Sept 28 we will meet in the Media Hub to edit the One Day videos. Each person will edit their own version of One Last Day… 30 sec to 1 minute in length.
