Turning Point of My Life. The short documentary about a student who get high pressure on his life, but his passion leads him to the college for a better future.
His name is George, this is short name of a politics student of Tech. He was a humble person and so friendly. Therefore, I selected him as my source for the fifth assignment. The topic of this week is about Pressure On. It’s about someone in a very hard situation and struggle for that. I believe that everyone has their own story that can provide an important lesson.
George has proved it, He was a homeless person, but his passion, get him as student of Tech University.
The preproduction was started one month before the D-day. I emailed some of topics list for him. And, a week later he said he was ok to involve in the project. Friday, March 6, the shooting began. It was a nice Friday.
I borrowed the camera equipment from the department of communication Tech University on Friday. It was so hurry and busy day, because I need to bring all the stuff by walking and hurried by the time. On Friday, March 6, the shooting began. The location took place at Williamson Hall. But, I prefer for outdoor shooting where the sun shines clearly.
I use wide and zoom lens, 18-55mm and 70-300 mm. This was good combination. Creating Bokeh effect and candid scenes I used 70-300 mm. Canon Tx3 and 18-55 mm canon lens help me creating good composition and nice tone. For recording, I used wireless sound recording.
For processing, I use Adobe Premier. I also do some research to emphasize the story about home less student. I also took some pictures from internet especially the statistic. I used Adobe Premier to organize and to process the scenes. I added back sound at the intro and the closing scene. The dynamic rhythm was added to present an active mood. I also include B-Roll to create more original scenes. For finishing, I uploaded the video on Youtube.com and WordPress.com
