First project for my Cellphone Cinema course. We had to make a slideshow and put it to music, but I decided to make one based around a simple, but present, story rather than a simple photo collection.
My two friends (studying drama) in the video were thrilled to have their first experiences on film that mentioned them, was based around a script with their names on it, etc. and I was thrilled to have my first directing experience with actors I chose and guided in order to make the final project. We had a great time, and apparently I was quite good at directing them in a way that got the job done, maintained my vision, but respected them and maintained a friendly/professional demeanor. I learned a lot, but I wish I was better at making slideshows in order to have some shots move faster than others, but oh well.
I paid them with pizza.
