We took a brief history lesson of how come we use 24 (25) frames per second in connection with a shutter speed double of that 1/48 (1/50). Simply because at those figures, a film looks reasonably true to the eye and it is most economical in film and developing costs, so these values have been retained even now that most of us use digital video recording methods.
We looked at the various picture ratio formats film makers use on their productions.
We looked at colouring our videos to give them 'The Film Look'. Especially the 'In Look' Blue and Orange.
We also discussed how we can turn our videos from 'Day' to 'Night' look.
Finally, Roy showed us how to capture smoke in front of a black screen and superimpose it onto a video clip. And Rod showed us his video of his recent cruise experience.
So on Tuesday 15 March 2016, we go on a film shoot as follows:
WAYNE GOSS DRIVE
BROWNS PLAINS 4118
The aim is to not only film the wildlife and flora but also to concentrate on filming each other, filming. A bit like 'Behind The Scene' documentary And then give it The Film Look in post processing.
SEE YOU AT BERINBA ON TUESDAY 9am
