Thoughts From Home 3: Tokyo Drift
A lot has happened this week so bare with me.
- 24 Frames
“a disservice” said Houk “to the project”. Those words rang in my eyes the rest of the days Thursday, February 20th. My 24 frames project, which told the story of four jealous Godzilla toys tying up there owner for buying new toys, had its ups and downs. On the upside, everyone who saw it pretty much understood what was going on. Houk even understood why I spent so many frames of shots of the Godzillas, to show there personalities off. On the downside, I did not take my time to make sure all the shots were done well. As a result, the whole project suffered. A really disservice. Going forward, I have to mind my time, make sure I can get the best product possible and really bring these stories to life.
- Sofia’s Shoot
I have been interested to see how my friends work in there productions. Would they deal with stress? Would they give up? Would they be hard to work with? Observing Sofia’s production, I found that she took to directing very naturally. The shoot when very calming and smoothly. Before this project, Me and Kelvin would try to get projects off the ground. We would only get a two or three scenes and run out of time. Sofia would get two scenes fairly easy and move on to the next. I remember her saying to me ” Are you taking notes?” To be completely honest, I was.
- She’s Leaving Home
The song I have chosen for my music inspired video is “She’s Leaving Home” by The Beatles. A deep cut from “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”, It’s beautiful arrangement and classic Lennon/McCartney vocals really stood out to me as a kid and even now. Taking what I learned from Sofia’s shoot, I got my shots quickly and cleanly as possible. I can say I am really happy with what I have so far. A huge thanks to Madison Alvis, Sofia Armintor, Austin Galvan and Kelvin Kataria for helping me out and stick with me. I really think this project will be amazing.
