Testing Testing 1, 2, 3

Today we will begin processing the footage from yesterday’s video shoots. The DDA CMT shoot went well but I think there are still a few kinks to be worked out before we get Elliot in the studio. One of the aspects of the project still under debate is camera movement. Since there is a dialog going on between 2 characters, my film intuition says many quick cuts back and forth with tight shots of the speaking character and the occasional wide shot. The only problem is the video is not going to be played on a television, but a website; so there is no “screen”. OK, fine. We will just pan and zoom from character to character. Not that simple. Since we are shooting on green screen and superimposing the background, it does not change with camera movement. So, the test will be to see if we can manipulate the background to fit the camera movements. With our talented team of videographers, 3d and flash animators, I’m sure we can do it!
