Specialist Project – Documentary Outline Updated
I made this 3 minute slideshow to present my idea for the documentary, which I plan to produce for the Specialist Project.
- Interview Ben during a makeup session before a performance
- Make sure to film closeups during the interview for example hands, eyes and the face. The hands and makeup tools of the makeup artist.
- Film the technical rehearsal for the BA Acting production of Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ for the B roll footage – essential in order to keep the viewers interested.
- Film an opening sequence of Ben performing a powerful but solo performance of a Shakespearean play using a “Film Noir” style lighting effect.
- If time consider designing a title sequence in After Effects
- Finally look at projection although I may want to save this idea and do something like this for the EMP but on a large scale involving BA Acting again assuming they are interested.
I have planned to spend the final two weeks of the project editing the video footage to create a final video of up to 5 minutes in duration. I will also produce a number of alternative edits including some just for portfolio inclusion rather than directly for this unit.
I feel It is important to manage all stages of this project as my previous experience with the summer break project, where I was filming out of sequence created problems and which thankfully having made extensive notes just to be certain that I had a complete shot list and enough B-roll for the project. Without these notes the project would not have gone as smoothly and even with these notes I had to re-visit locations to get additional B-roll footage.
