The March For Our Lives Protest

‘The March Of Our Lives Protest’ video transports us the viewers to Washington DC, which shows the people who are against guns.

The VR film shows many people, mainly students demand action against gun violence in America. The 360 degrees video makes the viewer relate to the people in the crowd. This video was about hundreds of thousands of people standing up together to make a change. It was organised by students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where a gunman killed 17 people 2 months ago.

Was it successful: I think that the impact of having film as a VR film really make a difference to people who watch it. By it showing people standing up for what they believe in and how they all come together is shown, which is every successful.

Equipment: I am unsure on what camera they used.
Looking at ‘The Guardian’ VR cameras can retail from £208.99 and higher. For editorial client, I think they would pay around £350. From doing research I concluded the price because its a modern way for recording. But not many editorial based articles have research in filming VR. Photographers and videographers would get paid around £350 for the content that is produced with the cameras. (Same as ‘The Flight for Falluji’).

Photographers: I believe that photographers could be producing VR footage in the future. I think it adds more to the story. By showing the crowd we really get a feel for what it is like to be in America, people all around the world be apart of the protest by watch it.

Collaborating with professionals: I think that by collaborating with other people in the industry would be a way to take the VR video to the next level. Instead of having just camera maybe adding graphics would be a good idea.

The Fight For Falluja

The short documentary film transports us the viewers to Iraqi, Falluji. The video shows the battle that Iraqi with ISIS.

The impact of having the 360 degrees video makes the viewer relate to the documentary. It made me feel that I was with the soldiers. The clip where the soldiers were “sitting around waiting for something to happen” and the loud noise of the rocket going up and the camera man and Scott Anderson got frightened, I got frightened too. Which shows the way they film and edit the documentary does have an impact, I was able to experience what it would be like.

Was it successful: I do think that the message came across in the first hand video it’s extremely successful because I was able to experience the life of the soldiers who are fighting against ISIS. With the 360 degrees I am able to see everything in different view points.

Fashion

For the Editorial project I have decided to go with ‘Fashion’. I have never done fashion photography so I think it would be a good idea to try it out and see if I like it. I think it would be good for me to collaborate with stylists, models and makeup artists. I think that by doing this, it will get me out of my comfort zone.

For my theme, I have decided to do with Spring/ Summer, as it is coming up. I have created a Pinterest board of the clothing that I think would be good. Although I do need to have a look in magazines to see the fashion in there.

The clothing is quite flowy clothing with bright colours.

I have also create a Pinterest board for the makeup I would like for my models. It’s a glossy makeup look.

 

Update On Nike Ad

My group has created a Google Doc to share ideas and information about the project. Paige’s ideas for the Nike Advert.

Idea – Multipurpose use of Nike trainers – The aim, they’re not just for sports. Montage pf clips and writing slides of everything Nike trainers can be used for and who can wear them. Not just limited to sports or millennials.
-Sports, running in a park, on a track, and a sport (football, basketball), everyday fashion wear, evening fashion wear (night out) adults, elderly, kids, men, women, etc.

Bright and colourful shoot, maybe even bring in some mixed coloured lighting especially for evening shoot ideas to intensify the idea of night out/ evening style.
