Life is a progress bar
transferring all principle shots on to pc then to a hard drive for back up. because i learn from mistakes
for the shooting of the film has been pretty crazy. we have finished all the shooting for the five minute film we have lovingly called, Destinatio: Mars. It was a team effort coming up with the idea but i was the Head writer for the team and also the director of the film.
the writing process i really found really fun and it is the first time i have written a script for anything. Also the first time directing. It is really fun playing with characters names back story. But one of the hardest thing is dealing with the creative input of the writer and being based on facts. The balance of making it seem it could happen is very hard to combine. You either tell a boring story that is predictable or go overboard with the future and do time travel or something.
I wrote the script after the first weekend of the semester and the following studio lecture we were told to make it more comedic and i was panicking because i wrote the with a serious undertone. But my team was very supporting and decided to keep the script with the team editing to make it more relatable and more jokes.
Shout out to my team member and Director of photography Kavita for being so great. I yell angles and she gets it thanks!
zSo Last week has been an absolute mess. It has been so busy for me. We moved house last Wednesday to Pokeno, unpacking. working, university. I m not complaining but it just deteriorated my work blogging stuff.
Whats happening so far?
so for the first week of second semester
It has been fun. Finally got my arduino got it to blink and it didnt blow up (YAY!)
got an assignment for integrative studies, which has been said to be an extension of introduction, but much better, (sorry pete)
got to learn to integrate objects which is always a jam.
the one thing that is hard though finding an object, which i didnt think to be so hard to pick an object . i picked my object almost the last minute. I asked people what their objects were and people had amazing back stories for the items that they chosen. some were memories of home, parents, grand parents. And i noticed something, i wasnt a person that put memories in objects. I put memories in the moments. That time i went to america, that time i rode my bike. the moment is more important to me than lets say the bike.
so what happened is that i used a photo that is used to capture moments in peoples life. Even when i identified the problem, it was still hard to find a picture because i take little photos as it is.
in the end i ended up using a photo from my birthday from last year with my friend thats leaving.
still feel like a photo is less meaningful than the stuff other people brought to class
