For this group video project, we were tasked to make a short video about someone who wanted coffee but couldn’t get it. With this, we decided to make a video about 2 office workers who wanted coffee but end up fighting over the last packet. Making this video we used different lighting, camera, and sound techniques we learned in our class. In regards to lighting, we used 3 point lighting for many scenes to try and give the scenes a more 3 Dimensional look to them and to have the actors pop out more from the background. For the camera, in the beginning, we used a rack focus shot on a camera that had a manual focus ring on it. For sound we used some audio recorded from the cameras, but some other parts with specific sound effects like the Jenga or dart throwing had sounds added after the video was shot.
Other Group Video and Critique:
- Quite a few interesting shots and transitions including the coffee mug to toilet transition and the ending scene.
- Voiceover is interesting more near the end when it gets more complex, but otherwise is slightly distracting from the overall video.
- The last shot is a bit too dark for the inside of the car. A few other shots where lighting could be increased
