film 1 postproduction and film 2

We have had a one-day editing lecture using Avid to familiarise ourselves with the software before undertaking the postproduction and editing work for the one minute film.  This made it simpler and easier to work with the film.  Given the film being a one take, the editing process was quite simple.  The challenge for me was to select the right take out of the 10 takes that we managed to complete during shooting.  Editing helps the film looking more polished and completed.  I was happier with the film at the end of the editing process. 

Film 2
The brief: 2 minutes screen time, maximum of 10 cuts, no dialogues or narration, no hand-held and post-production sound can be used for a maximum of 50% of total screen time.

I previously worked with symbolism and conceptual ideas in film 1 and given the aforementioned criteria, I decided that for exercise two, I will dedicate more space and creativity interest for plot development and characters’ movements.  The purpose of film 2 is to assist us in understanding the important of ‘continuity’ in films.  I will therefore attempt to create a plot that demonstrates this requirement.  The title I have in mind for film 2 is ‘the feminist’, it is about a young woman who has a strong view on what ‘feminism’ should be.  Script is still in the development process.
