I’ve been away on holiday in Mauritius for Christmas and so have had no internet for over a week, hence the late blog post.
To be honest, I’m a little ashamed to say that there’s not much to report in the way of progress. This is due to hectic-ness of family and Christmas, and of course a holiday in the sunshine! I have, however, managed to complete one of my 2000 word essays – the contextual one about the theoretical and practical aims for my portfolio. I’m pretty pleased with it, and I feel that it succinctly sums up what I want to get out of this project and why I’m doing it, looking into what influences me as an editor and the different theories that I can apply to the individual projects in this portfolio, whether they are a music video, a documentary or a trailer.
The trailer mash-up of The Breakfast Club and Ocean’s Eleven is getting there, but it’s pretty slow going, as matching up audio of one film to the video of another is a lot harder than I thought it would be! I’ve also begun to make plans for what pieces of work I’m going to include in my showreel, so as to best display my skills as an editor using different genres and styles
So at the moment progress may be a little slow, but I know that once this Christmas/New Year’s period is over, I will get straight back to it and try to get as much done before term begins as possible.
