The scene my group shot was scene 7 which is a crucial scene because it involves Justin and Bethany getting together and kissing, followed by a dance scene.
My finished product ended up being quite different to my original ideas because near enough all the scenes ended up being shot in different locations to what was on the storyboard. The skills I have developed during this assignment are how to set up and work with tracks, how to set up and use a boom mic as well as further increasing my continuity awareness. On top of all the technical skills I have also improved on my teamwork skills.
The feedback I got from my peers when they viewed my scene edit was positive, the majority of them thought that the audio fit well with the video and the cuts between the actors seemed natural and fluent. If I was to do this all again I would have captured a wider variety of shots. I would say I have developed various new skills in Final Cut Pro as well as gaining new experience in being a part of a production.
Strengths and Weaknesses
My strengths for this project would be the fact that I was able to work as a team and have a knack for spotting continuity errors. Another strength of mine would be my development of my skills with Final Cut Pro, I was able to sync together audio from other clips.
My only weaknesses for this project would be my quiet nature, as the director I could have spoke a lot more when it came to organising people for shots etc.
Overall I am please with the outcome of my video and the expansion to my skills with Final Cut Pro. I learnt various tricks of the trade when it came to being a part of a production such as working with multiple cameras.
