We were brainstorming ideas, and which teammates had a possible story. I was chosen as the interviewee because I had a story to tell. My story was on finding trust in new athletic coaches. This year all of the sports I participate in had new coaches. We agreed on this subject because it seemed to be our best option. The rest of the positions fell into place accordingly because our third group member was not present. Mikela took the rest of the positions (reporter, director, cameraperson) and we decided to split editor. When our third group member came to school, Ella, we gave her the job of reporter and editor. We all continued to remain in our positions but all of us decided to participate in the editing process. This definitely helped because all of our ideas were useful and no one had to burden all the hard work.
Safety is very important in order to film and create your best work without injuries and problems. When shooting, safety is the most important to keep you and your coworkers alive, and your subject comfortable and the process legal. The top three safety precautions in film making are being aware of water heights and possible flash flood or large waves, ensuring you or your subject are not putting yourselves in danger to 'get the shot' and lastly being sure that filming is not being done while multitasking. First, living on an island like Kaua'i involves a lot of unplanned weather and large waves... when filming it is crucial you watch the waves for a while to be sure they are not breaking in your planned filming area and keeping track of rainfall near water reservoirs. Second, it is important to be sure you are not risking a life or equipment when filming- the art of filmmaking is making things appear a certain way without actually having plat it out. Lastly, being sure you are not filming while hiking, driving, walking in risky areas, biking or anything that involves you having to split your attention- although many films have the feeling one is filming while driving, most large films have many people on set.
I feel I should have prepped on the answers for my questions. Although usual interviews are on the spot... I feel if I prepped the answers a bit more I would have had more powerful answers and statements. If it were possible to film off campus, I would like to have filmed some B-roll at the pool because I talked a lot on swimming throughout the interview. Another awesome b-roll would have been filming a team hangout to add an audio visual tie when talking about my team. My teams overall results leaned toward a three. I feel this was a fair result of our video... although we did have a lot of restrictions because we could only film at school during class time. Our top three areas of problem are; more audio visual ties, bump up the nat sounds and prepare the interviewee with questions before hand. Also our interview composition was almost a profile view. Lastly we could have coordinated our script with our b-roll and interviewee answers, in order to connect the video visually and audibly
