So for Project number 7 we were assigned to film a documentary. My partner Lauren and I decided to film the Pan Area Carnival. We figured that this event would be something good to film and it would be fairly easy to get B-roll and good interviews from people at the carnival.
Interviewing someone was actually much easier than I thought it would be. We interviewed three people and actually got great sound bytes from each. I think the toughest part was doing all of the takes to get what we wanted. I know that for each interview we had to have around 5 or 6 takes to get what we wanted out of their testimony.
I think that my favorite part was getting the B-Roll for the documentary. I really enjoyed filming the pac-man running around and all the inflatables. I actually took the camera into the inflatables to get an even better video.
All in all, I really think that this film was a great success. I think that it looks very professional with all of the B-Rolls and all of the interviews. I think that each sound byte gave new insight to the event and they all came together to fit into a great film. This event was such a success and it was a lot of fun to work with it. It felt good to support RSA and support the community of Elon. I hope that RSA could take this film and use it for years to come to promote awareness of this event and help it become even more popular and successful in the future.
