Filmmaking is an ever-changing art, not only in the process but also with the technology, the viewers and within every aspect of what makes a movie “great”. As I pressured myself to follow a strict schedule I had to adjust to make everything work. My strong suit is planning and I played it well. I adjusted for projects to fail (such as working with the host of the cooking show’s daughter). I had to compete with ever-changing schedules with one other person in order to create the presidential ad. When it came to the music video I had to work around using the space necessary. Every film has its hitch and every film has something that you really take away from it.
When I set out to create the projects I wanted a diverse range of material, from ads to instructional to the music video I showed that I can work within any spectrum of film. The ultimate goal of having footage for a demo reel has been reached because I can confidently show my final works and let people know that this is where I am at my current level of skill. I look back 3 years and see how far I’ve come and how much I’ve produced. Shooting these last final films within their time limits gave me confidence that I can work on any project. If I can manage to pull these off by myself I can only imagine how well I will function in a crew. This final summation of self-skill has been exactly what I needed to get in order. Onward with life!
