Tomorrow, I plan to go out for my first walk. I have been thinking a lot about how I want the piece to be composed as to be both understanding and appealing in the final video. I am really interested and inspired by Lee Walton's short videos, and easy composition. From a few of his videos is where I have started my thoughts.
The other day I took 2 test shots of how I thought I wanted the videos to appear. After testing them I think I have came up with the following decisions:
- have a short video for every new song I listen to. This will set up a new location and in a sense give the viewer a sense of walk duration
- When the song finally tells me to stop, i will stop within the frame. I don't think I will contunie walking like I did in my test shots.
At this point I am still unsure if this will work, but I will try it out tomorrow and take it from there.
I like the first videos composition more, however, I feel like a more straight on angle and wider view would like nicer. I don't think its necessary to take the ipod out, nor is it to keep walking.
