  1. #1 Coming up with the script, because you need to think of how your video will look and sound on paper.

    #2 Because you can figure out what camera angles and shots you will need so you don’t have to move from place to place and save time.

    #3 Finding the location and make sure everything looks like the the story board. The best part was the actual filming were you got to act.

    #4 So you don’t have to go back out to the feild during post-production and making sure you pick the best scenes.

    #5 Making sure it sounds good such as picking out the music to set the right mood.

    #6 Getting more Camera Angles involved so it dosent seem like the video is moving so slow.

    #7 Less is more, it dosent have to be super complicated for a great video. Focus on the little stuff.

    1) The most difficult part of the pre-production phase was thinking of Skeletal Treatment of the video.
    2) The Story Board is important to pre-production because then you can see what the camera is going to see before you start recording.
    3) The most difficult part of the shooting phase was location scouting. My favorite part of the shooting phase was seeing one of my group members fall down the bleachers.
    4) It is important to shoot as much video as possible so that you have a larger range of choices when you get to the editing phase.
    5) The most difficult part of the editing phase was making everything run smoothly.
    6) From a Technical standpoint I learned to think through what exactly is going to happen on camera.
    7) Something that I learned from other people’s videos is that there are a lot of other things you can use in videos to get different effects.

  3. #1. Coming up with the skeletal treatment of the video because you have to think through every part of your video.

    #2. It makes the production phase easier because you already know what you’re going to see when filming the video.

    #3. Finding where you are going to film the scenes. The best part was seeing how bad of an actor i am.

    #4. So that have more videos to chose from during the post production phase.

    #6. Switching more camera angles to keep the audiences attention throughout the video.

    #7. I learned that the music that goes into the video sets the tone of the video.

  4. #1. The most difficult part of the pre-production phase for me was the skeletal treatment. It took me a lot longer to prepare than the rest of the preproduction parts.
    #2. The story board is important because in doing so you set up the whole outline of the story, what angels to use, when to use them, and who to shoot when you use these skills.
    #3. The most difficult part of the shooting phase would have to be finding the perfect location to shoot the right scenes. My favorite part of the shooting phase was the acting.
    #4. It is important to shoot a good amount of scenes because you do not want to have to go back out to your location, especially if it is far away, and shoot the scene again after you have already started your post production phase.
    #5. The most challenging part of the editing phase would probably be learning how to run adobe premier, since I am not use to the software.
    #6. I learned for next time, in a technical aspect, to use less acting and focus on how to keep you audiences attention, and guiding them in seeing what you want them to see.
    #7. My piers videos encouraged me to use more effects.

  5. 1.The most difficult aspect of the pre-production was coming up with Skeletal Treatment because you have to think about every little thing you want to happen in your video.

    2.Storyboards are important because it easier to shoot your video if you have a visual of it on paper.

    3.The most difficult part of the shooting phase was trying to get all sorts of different angle and having to reshoot things multiple times. The best part was when we were on the last scene and we were finally done.

    4.It’s important to shoot thing several times so that you don’t have to go back and shoot more stuff in the middle of the editing.

    5.The most difficult part if the editing was trying to make sure the video flowed smoothly and that it wasn’t so long that the viewers would get bored.

    6. The thing from a technical aspect that will help me next time is to try out all kinds of camera angles when shooting.

    7.What I learned from the other videos is that music can set the tone of a video and change it drastically.

  6. 1. drawing the sketches because you have to visualize every little thing in your movie.
    2. It makes the production easier because you already know how your video is going to go.
    3. The most difficult part was thinking of all the different angles to use. My favorite is the filming in its self and making it all come together.

    5.getting every part to flow and cooperate with you.
    6. I learned that I need to use more effects to make my video better.
    7. less play more serious.

    4. Because you can always delete, you cant reshoot.
    5. Organizing all of video was the most difficult.
    6. To shoot from different angles so that you can get people interested.
    7. The music can really help the movie be better.

  8. 1)The most difficult part was coming up with the Skeletal Treatment.2)It helps you visualize what will happen during shooting.3)The most difficult part was trying to pick a location. The best part was actual shooting and acting.4) It is important because you will have a variety of scenes when shooting.5)The most difficult part of editing was making sure everything fit together correctly.6)I learned that switching camera angles is very important.7)I learned that the “Ghost Effect” looks really good.

  9. #1. The hardest part to the pre-production stage was creating the skeletal treatment. It was the most difficult because we had to think through what the video was going to end up being like.

    #2. It is important because it shows what the setting is supposed to be like and the actors are doing throughout the entire video.

    #3. The most difficult part of the shooting phase was trying to figure out exactly which angles we needed to use to make it look the best. My favorite part of the shooting phase was getting to see the way our storyboard and skeletal treatment looked when brought to life.

    #4. It is important to shoot as much as we can so we do not have to go out and reshoot if we have areas that need to be fixed. It is much easier to record the same shot five times in one day than have to figure out exactly what you need to fix as you’re trying to edit it.

    #5. Trying to figure out how to make it look like Jaydan was a ghost. It was difficult because we had to work with the opacity of one certain part of the video and not all of it.

    #6. I learned that ‘s it better to shoot from different angles than just one so you can keep their attention the entire time.

    #7. It doesn’t matter how long the video is. It’s better to be short and entertaining than long and uninteresting and unable to catch the audience’s eye.

    6. I learned all of the different camera angles.
    7. We didn’t add any music.

  11. 1) The most difficult part was coming up with the storyboards to plan out what we were going to shoot.
    2) The story board is important because it give you a basic understanding of the order that the shots will be in and what to shoot at specific locations.
    3) The most difficult part of the shooting phase was making sure we didn’t laugh or mess up our lines in the videos. My favorite part of the shooting phase was being able to shoot in many different places with different angles.
    4) Its important to shoot as much video as possible because you can go through and find the best parts of all the videos and make them fit together for the best final video.
    5) The most challenging part of the editing phase is the transitions to new scene and make it flow smoothly.
    6) I learned how to use the camera angles to change to feelings in the video, and I feel like it will help me in the future.
    7) that changing the speed of the video improves suspence and moods in the video.

  12. 1.) Coming up with the drawings for the storyboard was the hardest part about pre-production.

    2.) The storyboard is important because it keeps the production phase organized. With a
    accurate storyboard, you know what order the scenes are in and when to shoot them.

    3.) The most difficult part of the shooting phase was keeping everything organized and knowing which shots we already took and which ones we needed to take.

    2. You know what the audience should see in the video

    3. The hardest was to find where to film the video, and the best was watching and laughing at the stupidity of the video

    4. Just in case you don’t like one of the shots you can use one of the other shots for the video

    5. Choosing the music to go with the video

    6. Using different shots can make you do anything you need for the videos

    7. Different editing skills, and different tone sets.

    1. The script was the hardest part because it is hard to think of what to say and do on paper
    2. It helps make the concept of the video flow better. By choosing the angles and everything ahead of time and have it written down to follow, it makes everything easier.
    3. It was hard to scout locations with everyone running around. Shooting the actually film was fun, but getting to edit it was way better.
    4. So you have more to choose from when editting, so if you dont like something you have other options.
    5. Knowing how to set the mood with music and using the opacity effect correctly.
    6. Thinking through the whole video first and putting all on paper. This will really help make the whole filming process much easier and quicker next time.
    7. It doesnt have to be so complex, if you really want a good

  16. 1.The difficult part about it was probably the script and how things were gonna be planned out.

    2.To plan out how everything is gonna go.

    3.The hardest part was to stop laughing at the most of it and my favorite part about it is how fun it is.

    4.To see which angle you like the most.

    5.Finding the music that goes good for the scene.

    6.Take a lot of shots and see which angle you like the most.

    7.Try to edit differently.

  17. 1.The hardest part was writhing the script and figuring out how to condense our idea into only a few minutes. We had to make sure that a story was told and that no important details were left out.

    2.The storyboard helped us determine camera angles, location, and where we wanted to place our actors. We referenced it after every other shot to make sure we were on track. We probably would have been completely lost without it.

    3.The most difficult part was making sure everything was in frame while also remaining close enough that the actors were able to be heard. My favorite part was filming the interesting shots we did, like the one where The Vampire fell to reveal V standing behind her.

    4.It’s always possible that you could start editing and change your mind about what angle you wanted a shot to be in, or that you noticed there was a small mistake in one shot, so you could replace it with another.

    5. The most challenging part was taking all the videos that we filmed out of order and making sure they were in order in the final project, and making sure that we used all the best shots.

    6. I learned how to make a title overlay another title and how to use transitions to make the video flow better.

    7. Balancing your audio is extremely important. If your music is too loud is makes it difficult for the audience to hear the actors, and the video might not make any sense.

    1.the skeletal treatment was a pretty hard aspect of the pre-production.
    2.it gives you the ability to shoot a well thought out video relativelyy quick because you alreadyy know what happens in the video.
    3.getting everybody ro cooperate and shoot the scene with at least a little bit of enthusiasm.i like the editing part i like to have power over what is shown and how its shown.
    4.the more video you have originally the less you have to shoot later .
    5.making everything run nicely with the music.
    6.i already knew about camera angles but they help alot more than i previously though.t
    7.planning is everything.
    (in my opinion)

  19. 1.The script to have the best take. 2. To see how the ideas play out in the video and to see how to word them. 3. The most diffuct thing was fanning the camera beacuse it would take for ever to shoot;My favorite was that if i messsed up its ok just add it to the bloopers. 4. I think its imported beacuse if u shoot more than the less u have to worry about never having enough. 5. I think it was getting the sound just right in ever part of the video. 6.That you dont always half to have music playing in every part of the movie. 7. To always make the viewer feel in tuned in the video

  20. #1 Figuring out how everything was going to look before actually seeing it on the camera
    #2 Because it helps you know what you`re going to do before you start filming
    #3 The most difficult part was going by what we wrote down at first. The funniest part was all the mess ups we had.
    #4 Because once you start editing you want to have everything that you need for your video.
    #5 The audio
    #6 Make sure you can hear everything on the video.

    #5 The audio
    #6 I need to get the camera closer so I can hear the people over the musical audio.
    #7 I need to put alot more time in my videos and not rush through it.

  22. 1. The most difficult part of post production was trying to figure out how to get the shots, where to shoot the video, creating the storyline, and making the script.
    2. The story board shows what you’re going to do in the video, along with ideas for the script.
    3.The most difficult part of the shooting phrase was trying to record empty hallways when classes are going to and from lunch. The best part of the shooting phrase was working together to create a small film.
    4. It’s good to shot as much as possible because if it’s too short you can add more too it, you can even just take bits of things you record.
    5. The most challenging part of the editing process was trying to find music that goes with the video and turning up sounds.
    6. I learned that you should spend less time on music and more time on filming.

    4. When you shoot a lot of video, you have a wider selection of choices for what to put into your video and are not limited to such few files.
    5. The most challenging part was definintely the green screen, no doubt about it. you have to sync in the key program with it and do the pin points afterwards, yet it doesn’t take long to get the hang of it.

    #3 The most difficult part of the shooting phase is to not get interrupted . My favorite part of the shooting phase is being behind the camera.

    #4 The reason it is important to shoot as much video in the allotted time is because it is much better to have too much video than not enough when you reach the editing process.
