Making Movies!

Weekends can be super busy for a Cinema and Television student! In one weekend I had rehearsals and a filming day for a short I’m producing, a filming day for a short I’m directing (and wrote), and a pre-production meeting for a documentary I’m helping out with. 

Cacophonous Productions: The Movie

I really don’t think most people have any idea how much work goes into making a movie; there’s so many details that have an effect on what you see on screen!

A lot of our end of the semester projects are in their post-production phase now, which involves editing, sound mixing, special effects, color correction, and picking up any extra shots (just to name a few things!). I’m taking a producing class this semester though and I’ve learned so much that helps me stay organized; so all phases of production can go as smoothly as possible. 

Cacophonous Productions: The Movie

It’s fun to be able to do different jobs on different projects; I hadn’t really thought of doing sound or wardrobe for instance, but now that I have, I have a greater knowledge and appreciation for them, which I know will help in future productions. 

I can’t wait to see all of the movies I’ve been working on once they’re done. There’s just something about screening your work that makes it all worth it!
