Let’s watch this short video from “Reframing Mexico,” a collaboration between UNC Photojournalism and Monterrey Tec.
Note when the producers use shifts in point of view: shots of a person doing something versus shots of that same action from the point of view of the person doing the action (onlooker POV versus subject POV).
Note where’s there’s motion (action) and emotion (stillness, closeups).
Find someone in class you haven’t worked with before to partner up with for another go at the “Object of Meaning” exercise. Before you head out, find out what the object is and make a shot list to plan how you will get different POVs, motion, and emotion into your video.
Be sure to have all your footage imported into Avid by the beginning of class Thursday.
