Tips 4 Shooting Interview

1.Rules of thirds when taking photos and video recordings.

2.180 degree rule is an imaginary line between two subjects. The goal is to keep the camera on one side of the create angle.

3.When staging an interview lighting and composition are key. 

4. LIGHT - Too much light or too little light can mess up a shot. Light diffusion create nice, soft, lighting. 

5. COMPOSITION -  Nose room and head room are the spacing in which your subject should be viewed. Don't break frame. Be creative in choosing a background.

6. When conducting an interview be sure to do a pre interview with your subject.
-Show respect to your subject by having your question prepared.
-Ask questions that will lead your subject to give detailed answered.
-Do not be afraid to lead your subject to the answer you want.
-Stick with your subject looking at you and not at the lens.
-NEVER cut off interviewee.

7. Be sure to have some take away/ noddy shots.

Baseball Sample

For this assignment we were given an audio clip, video clip, and a few different images to create a baseball introduction. We used Adobe Premier Pro to configure the project. With this advanced program we used a scrubber as place mark throughout the video, the Ken Burns effect to zoom and pan between different images, and several other tools within the program. I did the most experimenting with Premier Pro transition effects. Figuring out different ways to introduce new slides while keeping the tone consistent. Learning how to implement the Ken Burns effect was a bit tricky for me. The little details within Premier Pro will make or break a video. After watching tutorial videos from YouTube, creating this project became much smoother.

I "Pin" and "Curate"

Having a curating site like "Delicious" and or "Pintrest" makes gathering information to central location easy. Personally, I use Pintrest to curate information for specific projects. By doing so, I can pin different pictures, videos, and soundbites. By pinning such information, I'm essentially creating a central location for all of the material i feel will be helpful for my assignment. Since exploring sites for my video project i have come across several cool music and video sites that will allow me to create my best video. The best part about these different sites is that they can be used for other projects outside of this is class.

Thoughts on Michael Wesch Video

Michael Wesch made a video posted on YouTube on how media has changed. During the 2007 Superbowl, millions of dollars are spent in creating premier commercials that play during game breaks. For the first time ever, a cost free, home made video stood atop the most watched videos during the Superbowl. Michael Wesch figured out how significant new media would be, and was able to communicate these ideas to millions of others across the world. As an anthropologist, his perspective on new media showed that user generated content and communication would connect the world in an overwhelming fashion. Instantly, a new community would be formed through video where people could share and copy ideas from one another along with creating new and original ideas.
