Behind the scenes

Yesterday at school, we studied how to make some video content to homepages, etc. It's actually a longer project, we'll be into it for a few weeks (one day a week). Last week we talked about scripting and a bit about genres and styles to do film shooting. Yesterday we talked about cameras and our teacher showed us how to set the camera settings in professional cameras. It was quite a lot of fun, but really hard to remember since we are not continuosly using those cameras... Setting the white balance and using zebra stripe function in the camera is not exactly what I had in mind when I entered the school, but it's quite useful. And it feels cool to use camera equipment as a real pro. :)

Later, I went to the movies. Some time ago, I got a free movie ticket from our line's teacher, because I had excelled in some organisational things. I had to use the ticket before it expired and it took me some time to decide what to watch. (I'm really bad at going to the movies, I prefer books.) Eventually, I ended up going to watch The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, mainly since it had pretty convincing actor selection. I was amused also to notice how I paid close attention to the camera angles since we had just been talking about them in the school. I also loved the 3D animated parts of the movie. Doing something like that for my work would be awesome!
