Yesterday me and a group of 3 (including me) filmed our first scene. it was a mugging, i was the camera man; which i was quite happy with as i do struggle in front of the camera sometimes. I learned a lot and i was happy with the end result, for the most part anyway. it was my first time holding the camera so i was proud of the shots i had done. and my partners seemed happy with my work too.
But when we got to editing we noticed the audio was pushed to the left and therefore we need to film again, i don’t mind that but its a shame to have to throw away the shots. we should have checked the clips before turning them in. So i will make sure to do that next time.
And on top of that, we didn’t script anything, no lines or camera angles. which made us waste a lot of time debating on what we should do, so next time i will make sure a script is written and ready to go before we film. Even though improvising an entire scene made the experience more fun it also made it unnecessarily difficult.
