For this week we were assigned to do a video essay. What that is in short is watching a movie, picking scenes (or in this case picking A scene) and talking about the cinematography of said scene. We were given movie options and to my delight Django Unchained happened to be one of the options. This is seriously on of my favorite movies and who doesn’t like Quentin Tarantino?!?! Obviously I watched it (again) and decided I really liked the scene where Django an Dr.Schultz kill the Brittle brothers (if you haven’t seen this movie, go watch it…now!) It had a lot of different angles and close ups and wide lens shots – perfect for my brain filled with knowledge about cinematography (thanks to the article/youtube videos provided!) I also became painfully familiar with how to grab clips and paste them in movie maker, how to fix the sound when it isn’t working and recorded voice over about 4 times before I finally got it decent. This was definitely a learning experience. But without further ado (adue…adoo…I don’t really know…) here is my video essay.
