Make another Micro Film

  • Nov 10, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • Axis Apartments

Hi everyone!

As everyone who came to our last micro-film session can attest, it was a great way to meet new people, learn about the techniques of film making, and do some practical filming. I think that we should do it again!

I therefore suggest a meetup to do just that. Please let me know if you're interested and whether the suggested date will work for you.

I envisage that, this time, we will focus on acting, directing, and cinematography. A few theatre sports (to break the ice and free ourselves), a table script reading (to pull apart and understand a script) and a filming session, and we should have some pretty good footage.

As always, I believe that filmmaking should be a collaborative, and above all, fun!

Looking forward to working with everyone again, and meeting some new faces!

All the best,

Tristan

    My plan for the day is as below. I've built plenty of extra time into the plan so that there's no rush.

    9:00-9:30: Introductions and overview of the day
    9:30-10:00: General discussion of filming process and roles
    10:00-11:30: Critical viewing and discussion of short films
    11:30-12:00 Practical demonstration of equipment for dynamic shots (panning/tilting on a tripod, handheld Merlin steadicam)

    12:00-1:00: LUNCH

    1:00-4:00: Filming (interior or exterior location)
    4:00-4:30: Discussion and wrap.

    So, where and when?

    Meet as a group outside Axis apartments on Northbourne Ave/Mouat St, at 9am. There is ample on-site visitor parking and street parking nearby. We'll wait for everyone downstairs and go up to my place once everyone has arrived.

    Lunch?

    Please bring a plate of food to share. I'll be providing some hot snacks (think party pies and sausage rolls) and soft drinks.

    If you have any questions, my mobile number is[masked]

    Hi again everyone!

    Let's keep the current time and have another meetup at the end of November/start of December for those that can't make it.

    I had planned to cover on-location filming in an exterior environment, in order to introduce some of the challenges to be considered when shooting in an outside, uncontrolled environment. To this end, I have found a park near where I live (Lyneham Neighbourhood Oval) that has little activity or traffic noise.

    I'm hoping for an overcast (but not rainy) day, in order to demonstrate the flattering effect of sunlight diffused by cloud cover. In the event that it rains, my backup plan is to use my apartment for an interior on-location setting. The morning activities will be conducted at my apartment; we can also have lunch there or go across the road to Dickson shops.

    (post to be continued)

    I would suggest going ahead with this meeting. There is plenty of people attending and this is a great opportunity to learn. Doing something will lead into learning, doing nothing then nothing is learned. You don't need fancy equipment, we're no hollywood. Grab your iPhone, google phone and get filming. The main thing is keep going. Sorry I can't make it this time, but please don't postpone. Go ahead and make an Awesome micro film. It will be awesome, no matter what the outcome, and learn from the experience. :)
