Marketing video shot and edited for the Go Radio Show at KTSU on the campus of TSU. Shot with my Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera and edited in Premiere Pro. The ending logo animation was rendered in Adobe After Effects. https://HodgsonStudios.com
Shoot and edit a short sequence (1-3 minutes) using basic film grammar to articulate “following.” Clearly articulate who’s scene it is: someone being followed or someone doing the following. Try to escalate the tension in the sequence with the camera. You must reveal something within the scene.
Remember: Tension for the audience is the delayed answer to a strong question created in the storytelling. The audience has to:
1. Ask the question
2. Care about the question (want to know the answer)
3. You have to tease them with the answer.
1) Articulate “following” (not chasing)
2) Make it clear to the audience who’s scene it is.
3) Escalate the tension.
Week 6 of Cinematography class at the Art Institute of Houston. We had to shoot 5 shots. Jacob Hodgson was Lighting DP and James Seyer was Camera DP. Dallas Box was chosen as the director and everyone else who played a role are listed in the credits. The style for this weeks film was Film Noir. We have a total of about 12 projects to complete in about 3 months. Thanks to everyone who participated in our projects and we look forward to working you in the future.
This “Interrogation Scene” was one of our class projects at the Art Institute of Houston. It’s Introductory Video Production and focused on camera setup, lighting and working with a team or crew. We edited in Camera and then I edited some in After Effects and Final Cut Pro. Israel Garcia was the Camera Operator, and Chuck Gardner was Grip, and Jacob Hodgson was the Director.
Thanks to Tricia Garcia and Nick Asbury for taking the time to act for us!
This is one of our weekly projects in Digital Film and Video Production at the Art Institute of Houston.
