Today I will introduce the Terrifying Process film I did in New Media Images class.
The purpose of this project was for me to create a film based on existing footage and design a completely original soundtrack. We could find the footage ourselves; plenty of sites offered this, and many of them were terrific but cost money, unfortunately, since I had a tight budget during that time. So, in the end, I chose to use free raw footage from CINESTUDY.
And It also gave me a challenge if could use footage that wasn’t as complete or strong to make a piece that I’m happy or satisfied with. It could be more meaningful and better demonstrate and show my skills. As part of the soundtrack production, I also recorded some Foley effects like footsteps and sighs in addition to background music that I made.
As I previously mentioned, the difficulty I faced was a covid outbreak when I was taking the class, which made this class offered only remotely, leaving me a bit disappointed. I found it more challenging to communicate with others because I could only do so at home by myself. Editing at home, edit independently. Working on a project like this makes the process more enjoyable if friends or someone are around to discuss it. Otherwise, it felt a bit lonely. Also, the only equipment I could use for the project was the equipment I had at home because the school was closed, and the library was also closed. So I could not borrow equipment like cameras, tripods, or recorders, which caused me to acquire less equipment knowledge and professionalism.
I’ll talk about the process in the following post! I anticipate seeing you again soon.
