‘Happy’ Music Video
Cast and crew played their music video all throughout the session break. Concluding from their giggles, they loved how it turned out. Making the music video in only two sessions, they gained an insight into the joys and stresses (!) of the production process. And experimented with operating the camera.
The Joys of Camera Operation
R. was our cinematographer. She intially hesitated to take on the responsibility. She worried she would not be able to get her head around the technical aspects and apply what she had learned during the session. When we threw her in at the deep end, she lived up to the challenge beautifully. 🙂 And without hesitation! She filmed the dance scenes, experimented with different camera angles and discovered the magic of panning and tilting. R. was surprised that a camera angle shot from below produces such interesting aesthetic results. It is fantastic to see her enjoying this process of learning-by-doing.
