ASSIGNMENT: Video Shoot, Matched Action

You can set this up … choose someone doing a repetitive action (chopping onions, knitting, swinging a golf club) and make six different shots of it. One long, three mediums and two close-ups. Next week in class we’ll start learning how to capture and edit in Final Cut Pro.

Make sure you’re moving around and changing the angle you’re shooting from – the general rule is you want to change your angle by at least 30 degrees, but not break a 180 degree arc. (Basically, choose one side to shoot from and then don’t cross that line.)

Don’t worry about audio on this, think about using the macro switch on the top of the camera and hold that camera steady. Nothing is worse than shaky video.

Okay, maybe sketchy audio … but not by much.

Questions? Fire away.
