On Wednesday we went through final stuff for video – software we would need for editing the videos, music we needed licence for using it for our needs, etc.
I had to skip afternoon activity to find time for the shooting. Other students went on a trip to Brač Supetar, I regreted not going, but had work to do. My actors and I started with the shooting straight after morning class. It´s so important to choose proper actors and prepare the scenes you want to shoot so you are not under the stress when something is not going along the plan. We shooted each scene at least twice. Video was being taken in Marjan park, my favourite place and there was so many passerby people curious about what was going on. It was either making our work more difficult but worth seeing those faces :D. It took all afternoon to shoot all scenes we planned to shoot that day, but we managed to do workout after the shooting (my video was related to workout with story behind – just watch the video in Last day if you wanna find out.
I really enjoyed this part of the class, we even changed or added some ideas during the shooting and I was really satisfied with our hard work. Whole evening and part of the night I spent watching material we made and choosing the right videos which I was going to use for editing. At 2 AM, satisfied with material I already had I decided to go to our room to get some sleep. To my surprise there was another shooting in progress. Everybody had exact day and time for borrowing the gear scheduled since Saturday. One of my classmates had to shoot the video again from the very beginning (yeah the wrong set up…) and their video was much more challenging than mine (audio, a lot of dialogues, lighting, much more scenes,…) and her actors were on Brač trip so they started only at 10 PM. Our small dormitory room was full of 5 sweating people (they couldn´t use the fan because of the audio), tired like hell (some of the dialogues didn’t make any sense or were said in wrong and funny way). We finally ended at 4:15 AM, off to bed and slept for few hours to be fresh again and continue in editing.
