i shot my first short film two weekends ago.
what an exhilarating experience.
i’ve spent the past month juggling school, side projects and preproduction for this film
to make sure the shooting would run smoothly,
which it did for the most part due to an incredible cast and crew.
but i tried to triple up as cinematographer, camera operator and director.
jumping back and forth checking the composition and lighting, scrutinizing the performances
and being a leader in this fiasco
i made a few mistakes along the way
which is fine; i’m still learning. (gaffer tape in the top left corner)
now i’m at the editing stage
and i want to produce something good not because i’m expecting to submit it into a bunch of festivals,
but because a lot of people worked really hard on this film
because they believed in me and the project
and i don’t want to disappoint them.
here’s a quick, silly video of my brother, “the board clicker.” :)
i’d post more pics, but i’m still trying to get over this damn cold.
