Croatia celebrates Father’s Day

Go and find a story, he said. You have 5 hours. No problem, we said. We have the camera, the crew, and an idea, so what could go wrong, right? Even if things go wrong, Ivana and I figured it is not going to be so hard since our “spiritual leader”, Slavko is here. He always manages to find a solution for every problem, but, not this time. Spring arrived early in the crowded streets of Zagreb. Old people on the benches, young couples on  picnics, children playing with their parents, each has its own way of enjoying it. On the 19th of March, the people of Croatia celebrate Father’s…

Miss Fortune

Panic. The day hasn’t even started and we are already ten minutes late.  Usually happy fellowship turned into four hobbits that are trying to reach their Mordor, the fifth floor of the building of the Faculty of political sciences. Without air, coffeine and any life left in our veins, we decided to elegantly remain calm so that the rest of the group wouldn’t think we are having a collective stroke. Once that we’ve finished the editing, and taken a look at our videos, we decided to take a 45 minute break so that we could revive our bodies and continue in the same rhythm. Because of the sunny day that…

WORKSHOP – DAY 4

After seeing the work that was done in the last few days, the few mistakes we made stood out. That was a helpful insight, since we had another day of filming ahead of us. More sequences, tight shots and better sound was our goal. With that in mind, Petra and I went out to find another story. However, the story found us (in a way). With so little time for lunch, we were starving. Since both of us live on the coast, we decided it would be fun to find a citizen of Zagreb to recommend to us a traditional continental meal. And, a place we could eat it. Then…

Field assigment

Morning, noon, afternoon, every time is a coffee time. For our second assignment we decided to do a little project about coffee culture in Zagreb. Sunny weather pulled a lot of people outdoors. Coffee shop terraces were full and we managed to capture some of it. After our last task, we’ve learned on what should we pay more attention. The more tight shots we have, the better our project will be. This time we took a lot of equipment with us. We had selfie-stick, two tripods, big and heavy camera, iPhone, few microphones, and a lot of good will. Dolores was in charge for capturing every moment behind the camera…

Editing

To put your material in the right way, so it can be understood in the way it was meant to be, is probably the hardest part in film making. In our head it is very clear. We know, more or less, what shots and what sounds we want to use. Knowing editing we know how to put all of our ideas in unity. Even it is very hard and sometimes boring, it is very important. Good editing, usually one we don’t think too much about while watching film is what separates bad from good and good from excellent film. With power of editing we suggest viewers what they should feel and…
