I have now made it to week 5 of the Make Films course. I am loving this course and I have found Xanthe Berkeley’s guidance invaluable. I can’t believe that I am already half-way through the course. When I started this course I didn’t have a clue where to start when it came to making films, and I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be able to find the time to film. Now I can’t imagine a week without filming. I love it!
This week, Xanthe gave us the instruction of taking a breather. It was an opportunity for people to catch up. There were no new shooting tips this week, and if we didn’t need to catch-up then it was our chance to experiment and play. Eeeks! However, Xanthe was kind enough to still give us a prompt. This week we had to either share our world or go for a walk around our local neighbourhood. I decided to incoroporate the two. This video shows our local neighbourhood as well as what makes our world – namely the beach! This film is again our weekend, and is just one minute long. I tried to use a variety of techniques. I have also been very brave – I start the film with my very own ugly mug! So I apologise now if I put some of you off your breakfast 😉 . Anyway, here is my 1 minute weekend. As always I would love to know what you think.
I hope that you all had a lovely weekend, and just think, next weekend I/we will be at Brit Mums. Exciting times!
