Hey Players! I thought this video would go nicely with Wes’ class last week since it focuses on they toys we use to shoot. I think it nicely shows that there are always new ways to come up with capturing video. It’s important to think of the shooting style and manner of shooting as another piece of the storytelling puzzle. Can the style or the ways you are shooting mimic the type of storytelling you are doing or the tone of the piece? Or maybe the shooting style could contrast in a way that adds a new layer to the story?
Maybe it’s not as easy fling a DSLR around as it is a GoPro, but there is always some way to experiment. That’s what I also really try and remind myself: Experimentation should be part of the process. I think it’s easy to forget to have fun and really try new things when your in pursuit of all the different pieces necessary to make a video come together.
