Shoot a 30-60 seconds Doc Postcard. It should be uncut, with no text on screen, no graphics, music or special effects except if they are part of the scene you observe.
As any good postcard it should have some sort of revelation, not necessarily intellectual, could be emotional or visual: an insight, an emotional event, (something that changes the character), or a visual rhyme.
Post it on YouTube and then embedded in a post on the website, so we can see them all together quicker. Check the following categories: Your Name and Doc Postcard.
The themes are: GRAVITY and/or POWER (but feel free to do your own theme)
After we come back from our shoot on location we’ll watch them.
Next class we will be shooting observational documentaries “on location” then reconvening in class at 11.30 in room 242 of the Library to look at footage and discuss Final Projects.
