PRE-PRODUCTION – INQUIRY

Leader(s) in the Field / Exemplary Work(s)

Greig Fraser

Greig Fraser is a cinematographer and producer known for filming Dune, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and was the director of photography for The Batman.

Training Source(s)

  • The motion of a camera can create different emotions for example in a fight scene the cameras movement is very fast and shaky, making you feel like you’re in the action and builds tension. (40 seconds)
  • Sliders create cinematic shots and are great for short films, interviews, wedding videos, intros, etc. (1:12)
  • Foreground creates depth. (1:44)
  • Find a good foreground. No foreground is boring. (2:33)
  • Sliders are a great way to provide production value. (3:43)

Josie, our screenwriter, was gone, so as a team, we thought of a way on how to include him and still be productive (like attempting to film our film).

In this session, I focused on the shot list, and came up with new ideas for the shots to make it more creative and interesting, with my team as well.

Name of Scene Research

CueNotes
How can we use the technique used in the opening scene of Napoleon Dynamite in our film?While discussing our new storyboard, we decided the opening scene would have a close up of a persons hand grabbing a photo of our main character from a printer, using this opening scene from Napoleon Dynamite as our reference, studying how close the camera actually is, the angle, and when it goes in/out of focus.
