The Salen group have been busy working on exercise 2 of the project.
Together they devised a short piece based around the fear of socks…
To start with the piece has been filmed from a fixed perspective, then reviewed and changes made accordingly. It was then adapted to a new room lay out and filmed from a static point of view.
In the last 20 minutes of yesterday’s session we worked with a follow focus rig to start to experiment with the moving camera element of the exercise.
Next week we’re going to review the moving footage and apply the lessons learned in to re-filming it.
The sense of excitement in the room as we started to work with the follow focus rig was palpable!
We’re all learning a lot through working through this exercise, I think it safe to say.
