To make this project, I took a series of shots with some of my friends as actors and later put them together into scenes. I added scene title slides and then finalized my video and uploaded to vimeo to make it easier to watch.
I encountered several difficulties in this project. The foremost is getting the actors to do exactly what I imagined; it can be hard to convey a thought that you cannot put into words well. I also had trouble with timing the stage directions. My final difficulty, and perhaps the most annoying, is creating this reflection; I have accidentally deleted it twice.
I am proud of the backdrop the video is in, especially the courtyard. I also like how when a character dies, he drops what looks like blood (it is actually a minecraft item named redstone).
I would change several things, though. The intro for each scene is too short; there is not enough time to read the quote. I also would get rid of the little yellow circle that appears at the beginning of every shot, though I am not sure how to do this.
I learned from my colleagues' presentations that there is almost never just one way of doing a project. All of the different projects surprised me; I had trouble coming up with an idea.
One thing I learned about myself is that when someone does not understand what I am trying to get them to do, it annoys me. It is also oftentimes my fault. I also learned that I dream bigger then what I am able to do. I wanted to add a couple other shots as well as the ones that are there, but ran out of time.
