Today we went through documentaries. We will be volunteering on the sets of the diploma class documentaries and then cutting the doco we are assigned to when the footage comes back in. We went through the levels of narrative in a doco, observational filming, time, shot sizes, shot choices, story, on set protocols, interview techniques & management, shooting interviews, PoV, mise en scene, audio and teamwork. It was another great day and I left feeling inspired, realising I am finally in the right place at the right time, everything just feels right!
After class, I had to return some DVDs to the AFTRS library, going past the SCG the light hitting the trees in the park caught my eye.
