Old College Video Project

I was looking through some old videos on my computer, and I found this. In 2010, I took a HD video production class in college. We learned everything from using lighting and sound equipment to editing in Final Cut Pro. This video was part of an earlier project intended to help us get comfortable using lighting equipment. We had to create two versions of a short scene – one with regular lighting and the other with dramatic lighting.

I still remember the critique for our “non-dramatic” scene. Same actress (Hannah) is making a PB&J sandwich while watching TV. The process was pretty dragged out, with close-ups of facial expressions, opening the peanut butter, closing the peanut butter, etc. Our classmates and teacher weren’t sure she’d ever finish making that sandwich. :D

This is the dramatic lighting scene my friend Molly and I put together. It was totally unintentional, but we really like all the talk coming from the TV about an “evil lair” and having “one hour to get out of the room.” It fits the mood of the scene surprisingly well. Actresses are our friends Hannah & Eliza. Molly, who majored in digital video and cinema, has gone on to create some pretty spectacular work since. I couldn’t resist sharing. Silliness.
