    The Closet 

    Our first film using a real camera…the Canon EOS Rebel SL1. The scenes were shot at 24 fps, giving it a slightly smoother look than filming at 30 fps on an iPhone. But our camera work needs improvement. Learning how to pan, zoom, and focus will take some time.

    The lighting also needs work, but much of what you see here is a result of bad encoding. This is not the way it looks in Final Cut. The scenes are a little brighter and there’s no vignette (no idea where that came from). But it’s not any worse than the original, so I left it alone.

    Lots to learn.

      Much better than The Patron. Still needs a lot of work though. Lighting, camera shots, actors NOT looking at the camera.

    The Patron 

    Here’s our first attempt at making a short film from start to finish. Although it’s very poorly done, we learned quite a bit in our attempt…from story boarding to working with multiple cameras. When you’re a beginner, all mistakes are learning opportunities.

      Very raw. No sound effects or music.

    Training Video 

    This is a short clip I put together using stock footage from a training manual for Final Cut Pro X. Definitely a step up from an iPhone and iMovie.

    The Stalker 

    This was put together from about 5 minutes of random shots. Wasn’t meant to be an actual scene. It was my first use of my iPhone video feature and the iMovie app on my Mac.

      Pretty good, since this wasn’t even a story to begin with.
