Shooting for exercise 1 completed, what I had in the script was not exactly what was filmed. 1 minute is such a short time to include plot development as well as character development in the film. I ended up cutting out half of the plot and saved more time for character development…Right or wrong? I’m not sure, my gut says it’s right though. Ability to improvise on the shooting day is definitely one of the important skills for an amateur director like myself. Shooting time was scheduled for two hours (time to set up camera, rehearsal, getting costume ready and packing up) which I found was really short. If time had allowed, I would have liked to try out a few other camera movements and angles for the film.
