This Poly Life project reflection
1.1 Based on my experience with this project. The good elements of a good story, are the narration, having an untold story. Also having a resolution to the story, like if you changed different perspectives at the end of the story. Our project meets these elements, because in our film “a loved one” Sara tells an untold story about the murder of her older brother. Sara also implies how she changed after the death of her brother. She became more secure and more independent.
1.2 Two shoots that I would reshoot of Sara are the pan shoot and a Full shot of her in the beginning. I don’t like the pan shot because it was shaky and is also was an awkward shot that didn’t feel right when in transition into the next scene. The full shot of Sara in the beginning had the boom mic shadow, it was also difficult to hear Sara’s voice. There was a little movement when the shoot shouldn’t have been moving at all.
1.3 If would have changed the subject, I would have talked about my best friend’s death. Well because he made me realize how life is short and you shouldn’t waste time at all. Most people can relate because most of them have best friends and know that best friends are valued, like brothers.
1.4 I wouldn’t want to change our subject, I personally thought the subject itself was really inspiring and devoted but sad. You never really hear people say stories about the death of their loved ones, most because of the emotions and memories.
1.5 The project with Edgardo taught me the importance of good narration. In Edgardo’s film he explains the situation he under goes and in the end, he specifically identifies and solves the situation.
1.6 The project with the guy with blond dye, taught me the importance on how much courage you need to have a good film. He talks about him being teased because he was fat but now he’s in good shape. The best stories are the untold stories or the stories deep down in you....
