Week 9

For week 9 progress was great. I enjoyed learning a lot about filmmaking and the tools to make a movie great. There is a lot of different camerawork that filmmakers use to produce the angles of the movie. There is a lot of terminology in movie production. I can’t keep up with all the terms. There is way too many words. I had to complete 2 daily creates this week, comment on people’s work and do 12 stars worth of assignments from the assignment bank.

12 stars of video assignments were a little easy to make because video editing comes second nature to me being a computer science major. Below are my weekly assignments, click the link to view them:





Reading Roger Ebert’s How the Read a Movie to get some basics of film analysis was great learning about. The following are part of Tony Zhou’s great series, Every Frame a Painting in which he analyzes details of film making was worth watching and observing how films work.

An interesting point about all of these is that they are about design. The technique these directors use are phenomenal.
