We are going to take a small step up from our regular photography for a special event. It is experimental and I hope it can provide us some new skills in learning photography. As you all know, many of the new DSLR's can shoot excellent video in HD.
We are asking for members to post as many shots of their best photos here. The photo can be heavily Photoshopped or manipulated with special effects. The organizers will select 10 of the photos and weave them into a story.
Preferably, the photos you submit will be shot in Hong Kong so we can create the movie here. But there will be some photos shot overseas and we'll try to find a location similar to your photo. We will write a story for a 20 minute movie based on the photos. During the movie, some of these scenes from the photos will be re-created.
Based on the story, we may need to have some of you act in certain scenes. So some of you may become actors and actresses. We'll try to write the story without any speaking parts, if possible. We will get MUA to help in the makeup and dressing.
I got this idea from Ron Howard's 'When You Find Me.' It's short movie using this technique.
After everyone submits their photos in a week or two, we'll have a meeting to start the selection process. I'm scheduling this event a month from today. Let's see the photos first. You can start uploading your photos immediately by going to the Photos section at the top of the page. Look for the Album 'DSLR Movie Production Event (Re-Post)' and add your photos there.
We'll also be filming the whole process of making the movie. We'll call it 'The Making of .....".
Here's a Behind The Scenes clip of 'When You Find Me'. Click on it to start the movie.
Here's the Movie itself.
