BSA234: The Next Steps

Friday morning I was feeling relatively confident. I had done some research the night before to refresh my limited knowledge on the topics we’d covered in class and blog homework for cinematography, so I sat down at my computer feeling I’d do quite well in the multi-choice exam the class was about to undertake.
…one can dream.
I didn’t fail, but I didn’t do as well as I had hoped. I got 57 points out of a possible 100 which gave me the grade C. Sure it would have been nice to have a higher grade, but I did pass so I’m happy about that.

In other news for Cinematography, we’ve been told to start planning for our 3rd assessment. I guess that should mean our 2nd assessment is well under way? Yes? Oh. Better start on that then.

It’s now the 14th of May, the Showreel (assessment no. 2) is due on the 2nd of June, and then the Filmed Drama (assessment no. 3) on the 17th of June. That basically gives us two weeks to get our showreels filmed so we have some time for editing.
I have to talk to my class mates, but at this stage I’m planning to do as much filming as possible this next weekend.

I wasn’t too sure what a cinematography showreel should look like so I searched it up on YouTube. The videos below are a couple of examples of the showreels I found.
