My Ideas / Experiences
One of our final tasks for the summer was to create a presentation about 3 DIFFERENT THEMED ideas. Although I don’t have a presentation made JUST YET! I do have my 3 ideas:
Idea #1 – Jaguar
As I have previously explained in my blogs I have been on a european rally. It was so much fun and some of the scenery was ABSOLUTELY EPIC!!! This then gave me and fellow student Matt Clifford more thinking time and we thought that if we went again and we had COMPLETE CREATIVE FREEDOM we would be able to produce something that would be even better than this years video.
At the moment we are in the negotiation stage with Jaguar and we are looking to have this fully planned by the end of November. Basically we want to take a Jaguar car and make an advertising campaign! Not only would it look amazing on a CV but we get to create a network of contacts and travel Europe again. You will never produce your best work unless you are enjoying it and having fun.
At the moment we have a meeting set up with jaguar to go a talk with them. This will take place in the next few weeks. We not only want to shoot some sort of advertisement campaign but we also want to shoot a “Behind the scenes” Style video too!! this way we can take two crews and have lots of resources at our disposal. This films always tend to take off more than then the actual video too because they tend to be a lot more fun and easy watching
I would really love to produce some form of Time-lapse Project. After buying 7D SLR camera I have literally been fascinated with moving images and in particular time-lapse!!!! While travelling around Europe I recorded all of the time-lapses and they literally looked EPIC! The swiss alps was seriously stunning. I would also like to capture some amazing stuff up north in England like the Lake District.
My influences also come from watching people like Michael Shainblum on Vimeo!
Vimeo has the most amazing people to learn from and watch Time-lapse videos.
Create a short film. Or help someone else on their projects!!
This third year is all about getting stuck in and helping other students. The FMP is such a big project that it will require groups of 3-4 to shoot a short film I am currently talking with my friend Jack and Adnaan etc and they all have great projects that I would love to have a producer or editor role!
My presentation will be made over the next few days for when we go back to University.
