Shooting Exercise 

Assignment for Class on Monday, March 22

Shooting sequences: Wide shot, medium, closeup, over the shoulder or a reverse angle shot, and a creative shot. 

Edit your sequences on Premiere individually. Export each one to show in class on Monday. You do not need to TRACK  the sequences.

You do not need to send them to me. But be prepared to show the sequences in class.

This video on the class website gives a good example: https://youtu.be/5g_ArBSIunA

Use your tripod.

  1. Shoot an intersection near your house.
  • Shoot a subway entrance.
  • Shoot someone doing something in your kitchen, if possible. This is hard because it’s tricky to get all the shots in tight spaces.
  • Shoot people shopping for groceries. They could be going in and out of a bodega or a deli. 
  • Shoot people walking on the street. 
  • Shoot someone, or people, doing something in a park near where you live.
