How to Plan Plot and Execute One Shot Sequences: Fathers and Daughters Pt 2
INCLUDED IN THIS LESSON: 3 Minutes of Move Clips to assist Instruction, Behind-the-Scene Stills, and shooting schedule –Supplied w/English Subtitles
IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN: This lesson is Part 2 of a 2 Part series on plotting, planning and executing single shot sequences. Each shot is different, one with the MoVi and the other Hand Held. But each is designed to have emotional impact and immerse you as an audience member. Let’s dive into Part 2
This is about a single shot that we conceived within the first week of prep on Fathers and Daughters. Our director, Gabriele Muccino, saw these videos with the MōVI, and we wanted to come up with the shot that showed the unique ability to be able to pass this camera off from one operator to the other. Now, we’ve seen all the videos on YouTube of people handing it off of hooks, draping it down ropes, and doing all that stuff. But what was it going to tell in our story? In this lesson we will discuss what it took to pull this single 4 minute shot that propels the story and the performance of your actors even higher. What did we have to do to modify the MoVi, how did we achieve the pass off, how did we balance exposures, how did we plan it out, how did we pull this off?
