Happy New Years!!! I hope everyone had an awesome New Years because the year is already off to a great start! New projects, new goals, and sometimes a new you! But it's also time to reflect on some improvements that we have made in the past year. One of the improvements that I worked on is to shoot better sequences. Another improvment that I worked on was getting work done faster.When ever I start to relax during a project, I tend to say "it's ok, I'll do it later". And that's not good. But luckily I improved on both of those goals. And it's a great way to start off the new year of 2015!
One of my goals was to shoot better sequences. I know that shooting sequences are very basic but sometimes I tend to forget about certain thing. Shooting sequences was one of those things. With second quarter already finished and third quarter projects almost finished for me and Micah, I can tell you that filming sequences come automatically now. I don't have to think twice about it when I go filming. This has helped me out a lot during the editing process knowing that I have many shots to choose from that are already in sequences.
I also worked on working faster. There's a difference between working faster and working more efficiently. I wanted to work more effeciently. That's where you work on a project for a while and make lots of progress while paying attention to detail. I feel like I have improved a lot since the beginning of the year. I learned a lot about what waiting till the last minute can do to you the hard way. Me and Micah has only a month to finish the entire music video after not doing much work for the first half of the quarter. But luckily we finished the video on time for the KVB Party and they seemed to enjoy it.
So since I met my goals, I have to come up with some new goals to achieve in 4th quarter. I guess one of my new goals would be to tell a better story. Finding a way to tell a story is something that I need to work more on. The story of every video is the most important part. I can't think of another thing that I can improve upon. So if you know of something I can improve on, then write it in the comments below. I'm sure there are many things I can do to improve upon.
So that's about it! We just had our first STN Practice this Saturday and I think all the teams did good for their first practice. So good luck in 3rd quarter!
