Recently I have worked on a short documentary about the local pregnancy center for a local film fest. It was very different working on a documentary rather than a narrative. Watch the Film bellow.
The odd thing was I didn't really have a vision or define script for the film. I really just interviewed the main people involved and then took their stories and thoughts and molded it into a film. This workflow was kind of scary when I went to edit because I had no idea how it would turn out. Unlike most films, It was almost completely created in the edit which was interesting. Another cool thing I learned because I sometimes had only one camera angle to work with and wanted to cut something out, I learned to do a push in digitally. It seemed to add a lot of quality even the resolution is slightly less during the push ins, it's kind of hard to notice if you don't focus on it.
Well that's it. What do you think of the film? Any Questions about the film?
