Yesterday me and Adam Cox re-shot nearly half of the photos to be used in the Final pixilation video. After shooting the video, we both made our own edited versions of the “touch” pixilation video. The Third video above are all the photos we shot yesterday, unedited and combined together.

For the re-shooting of the video we only used one character.

Adam Cox was responsible for: playing as the actor and booking out the equipment. I was responsible for: shooting the photos and moving all the inanimate objects for example placing clocks and placing paper everywhere, bringing in paper and clocks.
We had technical difficulties for example the tripod wouldn’t go high enough or able to move it into a higher angle for the wall clock and calendar so we ended up taking it off the tripod and shooting it by hand. For the scene where the protagonist is holding one of the clocks, at first because it was in an awkward angle, I tried to take photos with the camera off the tripod, the photos came out shaky, so re-shot, tried using the protagonist’s shoulder as a tripod to steady the camera. Couldn’t hold the camera steady enough, so we re-shot the scene with the protagonist sitting on a different area , which then we was able to take photos from a tripod.

The day before re-shooting, looked up information about how to get the camera to take consecutive photos after a set timer e.g 10 photos after a 2 second timer, we end up not using this feature because when I did the test shots before the actual shooting, the consecutive photos was too quick compared to when we did the testing photo, so the actor wouldn’t be able to move fast enough as well as the images wouldn’t display when the photos was taken. Was able to however remove the 3 second timer off, that happened in the draft video; we was able to cut down the amount of time we needed to re shoot the photos. Learned from the draft video, and cleaned the lens before re-shooting the photos, to make sure for instance a black dot appear like it did in the draft video.

There was no hooks on the wall, so we made do and sellotaped the make shift calendar and clock to the wall. For the re-shooting the scenes, we rushed the re-shooting partly because was only able to give the equipment back from 4pm – 4:30. Didn’t realize the blurry images and inconsistent brightness of the photos, till the other person had gone home and gave the equipment back, so we had to make do with the photos we shot up to that point. The inconsistent brightness on the photos was either from the room lights or the focus of the camera.

Showed a viewer the video, their exact words was ” In terms of your video…I find that the character taps his finger too much, which is kind of annoying to be honest. I like how piles of paper appears out of nowhere and the illusion of time passing by. The movement at the end is extremely weird. I’ve never seen anyone move like that due to being paranoid. I don’t understand why the blue clock appeared after the appearance of the paper. The TV in the background is also distracting…some of the frames are blurry as well.”
When asked the viewer what they thought the video was about they responded ” The video is about time and deadline?”

If we were to re-shoot the video again: would make sure all the frames are OK before packing away, make sure the camera is focused and not blurry when taking the photos, make sure the alarm hasn’t been set off (we didn’t realize the alarm was on, it went off in the middle of shooting), make sure the TV is out of the shot, when editing to only place two taps in.
