Being on the movie trailer team, Mr. M assigned us on our title. The title we were given was "Finding Fred". We took the time, sat down and tossed around our different ideas. Some of us wanted to do different genres, different types of movies that we haven't tried before, being cautious and prepared if we get a various topic at STN. We never tried comedy, and that was new, so that was an option. We were going to do the comedy, but we switched of to more of a serious, adventurous topic instead, a kidnapping. Normally you would think Fred would be the person getting kidnapped, right? Well, in this case, virsa vesa. Fred was the kidnapper and kidnapped Taylynn. In order to find Taylynn, however, we had to find Fred. A person thought that Fred should be an acronym, not necisarily an organization though. We filmed it as Micah (who was F.R.E.D) kidnapped Taylynn, and we would have to find Fred to find Taylynn.
Before we were let loose on our Production, Mr. M had a conversation with the Movie Trailer group. He told us about this feature on iMovie with lets you see the whole storyboard for specifically the making of a Movie Trailer. It told us what shot to take and when to place the titles. We ended up not taking this to our advantage, which had an effect on the final product. Not using this definitely made our video not so good. I think on the next STN Practice on Monday we should listen to Mr. M and use the iMovie Storyboard and that will help us improve our video.
I think on the next practice we can improve on lots of things. Definitely one is to follow the iMovie Stroyboard and Script. Another thing is to plan. This kind of goes with the iMovie one, because if we just bring the app and follow the types of shots, we pretty much have our script done.
As you can see, we have some work to do. I hope that on this next practice on Monday that we will do better. Thanks for reading, Byee!!
