This week we’re moving from audio to video. We’ve been looking at related aspects – photography, sound, design – all along, but now we’re going to look at cinematic camerawork, and how it all comes together.
For starters, read Roger Ebert’s How the Read a Movie to get some basics of film analysis.
The following are part of Tony Zhou’s great series, Every Frame a Painting in which he analyzes details of film making. The entire series is worth watching and highly recommended, but I’m going to point out these in particular:
- View the documentary film Winnebago Man, and complete either the video essay assignment, or a written analysis of the Winnebago Man film using what we have learned from the Reading Movies activities above.
- Begin working on the Video Documentary assignment (This one is difficult and you have two weeks to complete it).
- Do an additional six stars of video projects.
- Daily Creates – do 2 this week.
Commenting – Keep it up! It makes the world go ’round.
