Korean BBQ at Picnic Garden. Yum. And as always, a great time chillin with the crew
I’ve been in the process of upgrading my style, now that I’m out of college. Which means a lot of clothes shopping, something I typically dislike because I’m an awkward size and nothing fits me well. Today I continued my quest at the Jersey Shore Premium Outlets. Shopping was not as painful as usual because I was with my awesome friends :). And I actually found a shirt that fit...
I will update this blog.
The Good, the Bad, and the Lucky: Day 3
With the first weekend of shooting under our belts, I feel good. It’s been hard staying on schedule and adjusting to problems that arise throughout the day. But I think it’s a testament to our group that we’ve been able to keep rolling. I reflected on the weekend with Olivia and I realized that all of us have high expectations for ourselves and for each other, and when we...
The Good, the Bad, and the Lucky: Day 2
Another day down, eventful as always. We hit some snags with equipment malfunctions, but we proved quick on our feet and worked around them. I’ve come to believe this is one of the most important characteristics of a filmmaker. I think we got a lot of quality footage. We’re perfectionists, who work for ‘the shot’ until we get it, but work fast in a crunch. These long days...
The Good, The Bad, and the Lucky: Day 1
First day of shooting in the can. We got off to a slow start and were behind schedule all day. But once we got rolling, things flowed pretty smoothly. I had some issues while running sound, but we managed to resolve them more or less. Part of me is excited for tomorrow, the other part is dreading it. But I think we’ll push through any problems and we’ll find a way to make things work. ...
I’m not normally one for musicals—except when I get to see them for free. Last night Jessica and I interviewed students on a field trip to the New Repertory Theater to see the musical RENT. It was a tight schedule so we only got a few interviews, but we the professors of the classes hooked us up with free tickets to the show. Personally, I found the storyline hard to follow, but when the...
New job today working as a caterer. It’s tiring work, but it ain’t bad. I learned a whole bunch about how things are done in the business. And I have a new respect for waiters who carry trays of drinks. It’s a lot harder than I thought it would be. Also, if you’re looking for new music check out J. Cole’s “Lights Please”. Can’t get enough of this song right now! His album drops Sept. 27th.
My 1st attempt at using After Effects by following the first 12 minutes of http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorials/3d_light_casting/ I think the center circles could use some more feathering but I had already rendered it and didn’t want to wait any longer. It’ll take some time to get used to everything in After Effects but I’m excited for when I master it.
