In today’s lesson, we have learned something about filming preparing.
The filming’s order always followed by locations. For example, there is a mirror reflection in my film which is something happend in the same place at the beginning and the end. Of course, it seems like I should follow this rules in this part. However, I need different wearther to set off the protagonist’s different feeling. So, apparently, some shots I can not filming in the same day.
Therefore, it gets very important to set up a reasonable shot list first.
Although this video above is just a movie clips trailer, but I like this quick view version, it can make the audience interested in the story before they enjoying the whole movie.
“What you can see hurt you.”
Throughout this story of the three women, the entire movie actually explores three important issues in women’s lives: women as mothers, women’s relationships with men, women’s relationship with themselives.
2. Dramatic Question:
The pressure of life is suffocating, how to decide our own future?
“Why are you here?”
3. Emotional Content:
This ‘train’ is heading to the heart of married women, which can make you gradually feel the passive, submerged, desire for freedom and independence.
4. Voice (voiceover not dialogue):
Not so much.
As the story progresses, along with the mysteries that emerge one by one, the soundtrack becomes more and more weird and belts along at a cracking pace.
Follow the eye sight of Rachel, we can see many pieces of other people’s life. When different people’s story overlaps, the only constant is her sight.
7. Imagery (economy):
The commuter train which Rachel watch other women’s life penetrate the whole film.
As you can see, I did not doing lots of research to finish this storyboard(audio and media list). Apparently, 29 shots is not enough to present my whole idea. I will do some reaserch as much as I could to figure out a best way to achieve my story purpose and the core message —- ‘Life maybe beat you, but as long as there is tomorrow, you should never give up. ’
Today, Simon have reviewed some useful techniques to help us making a better story. Our group chosen Slow-motion and presented by tossing a coin. This short video aimed to show a student’s anxiety before he starts to study.
Here is my final video:
The sound effect of coin tossing is called “Crash Metal Plate Big Room”, and the background music is called “Impromptu in Blue”. They are both came from Youtube Audio Library. As you can listen, I had reversed the coin tossing’s effect when it has falling back to his hand. It made the coin’s tossing more vivid.
When I published this video and replay several times, I found that the times of head turn maybe too excessive. I will avoid this problem next time.
