This is my favorite project I've worked on. My cinematography class had a project where we were split into groups and made a music video for a song of our choice. I took the lead for my group and came up with the song and conceptualized the video. In addition to directing, I scouted locations, filmed, built a set, and did the editing for this project.
This was a unique project to work on because it was part of a class competition. We were paired off into groups of three and given one hour to shoot and edit a 1-minute video. Before the competition, we were allowed to come up with a script, which I wrote as well. I was on-screen talent for the video and I edited this video as well. Our group was chosen as the class winners after everyone's videos were presented to the other professors in the digital media program.
YCC is a non-profit organization whose focus is providing aid to women and children, particularly those who have become homeless due to domestic abuse. The goal of this video was to spread awareness about the organization as well as information about how members of the community could become involved as well. My main role in this project was to edit the video, and I assisted with shooting as well.
One assignment in my cinematography class was to pick something from a video we have seen and try to figure out the editing style and techniques used and produce a similar product. I loved the aggressive, in-your-face editing style of Baby Driver and wanted to create something similar. I did all parts of the project myself except for the last shot, which my girlfriend filmed.
