These are my two first films I made for school. Both films are shot with a mini-DV camcorder.

The first assignment was to show "an object" with :
-no moving camera, zooming or focus-pulling
-45 seconds
-no sound
-10 to 15 shots

--> Click to view first film

The second assignment was to show "an action" with the same rules as the first assignment
--> Click to view the second film

The teachers were quite happy with the first film, but the second was not that good in their opinion. (and I agree)


greets, Thomas

Hey Thomas,

the first one is good, I like the framing of some of these shots.

I don't know the intention of your teachers but I can imagine that they wanted to see how much your images are able to express without any movement or music because these two elements influence a lot the emotional effect that images create and they make them look stronger than they really are.

As a suggestion you could try to change the depth of field in some shots (if your camera allows you to change it).
