Editing process

Editing is what makes or breaks a short film. For my trailer, i wanted everything to look straight out of a plastic movie, all the colors saturated to make my trailer more satirical and have a theme to it. Screen Shot 2019-04-30 at 3.14.02 AM.png

Homework

  • Title of the movie: Mean Girls
  • Trailer
  • Already shot the scenes which is creating a “mean girl milkshake”. The trailer is satirical.

Shooting the trailer again

After getting feedback from the initial trailer i shot, i decided to reshoot since all the scenes would have not flowed with my new concept which is actually making the “plastic” (barbie doll).

Shooting first movie trailer

Shooting the first version of my movie trailer, i realized that my concept was not as clear as i anticipated it to be, therefore i am shooting another version of my movie trailer and will play with the editing to include both versions.

Through the editing process i got the suggestion from my professors to increase the saturation to  make it look more “plastic”.

First story board

The first initial storyboard for my trailer. The whole concept of my trailer is creating a ‘mean girl milkshake’. The theme of it is obviously satirical as well as pragmatic. People who have watched the movie would understand the metaphor straight away.

First attempt// process of shooting my movie trailer.

Although i followed my storyboard, i made slight changes to my scenes, just as my professors assumed. The purpose of a story board is to have a solid plan to follow but as Leland said “plans change”. Nonetheless, planning for scenes and a solid story board is crucial for a good outcome.

Shooting the scenes was more enjoyable than planning them because they’re more spontaneous. The next step is to edit the footage and possible make alterations to some scenes/ reshoot them.

The design system through out three of my posters rely heavily on type & my color scheme as well as the rasterized images i used. They all have a ‘plastic’ element, the actors names are always on top & they’re all hues of pink.

POETIC

After todays critique of my first film poster draft, i understood that i need to add textures to my poster as illustrator flattens the piece. I also need to work more with type to make the poster work more.
