Along with the pitch which he wants in both one sentence and one paragraph form we were also assigned a character sketch.
Thursday nights class had us back Stephen and back with the camera. We covered Shot Terminology which included camera movements, perspectives, and angles. When there was about 2 hours left, Stephen surprised us an assignment. Starting right then the 5 of us were to write, film, and edit (in camera) a short film using as many of the ideas that we covered in class. This would be the only time we would do this as a group the whole year. It went off relatively smoothly but did have the usual speed bumps of everyone wanting their voice heard. We all worked together really well though. My shot was a "truck" shot. Being that we didn't have access to a truck, which allows the camera to move, I held the camera and sat in a rolling chair while two of my other classmates pulled me down a hallway. It came off okay all things considered. Stephen is going to critique our film on Saturday. That should be interesting...
