‘Tis mostly true…
We were never quite able to do my original project in the 10-week timeframe so I ended up with this. This is the pre-production (and goofing around) of my film that I hope to do.
Produced in association with Frames Film Project.
Mindmapping/artwork by Kat Thorsen and Jennifer Lyons. I guess this could be alternatively titled as “Jen Hold a Camera and Gets the Frames Staff to Mindmap for Her”.
Things I learned
- How to use a Mac
- More Final Cut Pro 7
- Final Cut hates MP4s
- Converting and rendering take a while. Get used to it.
- Shooting in 1080HD isn’t really worth it if you have to shoot in .mts and are editing in an older program. 720HD in AVI is good enough. (I don’t know if it’s p or i – I have an Olympus E-PM1)
- Changing light is a pain when your camera can’t change exposure while video recording
