Day 2: Scripting / Shooting

i Jul 31st No Comments by

KimeeDah, Dah-dah-dah, Dah-dah, Dah-dah, Dah! Yeah, you had to be there to get this fun exercise from Ms. Kimee Balmilero of ImprovHI on how to loosen up for the camera. Kids were rappin’ all over the place and made ready for action with front-of-camera techniques by one of Kaneohe’s most successful actors. We learned Kimee just closed an awesome musical at the Manoa Valley Theater this past week and did it without breaking any legs! Now that’s a pro!

DennisAnd then there was Dennis Burns, partner/director of photography of 1013 Integrated who took time out of his busy schedule to teach camera techniques. Dennis most recently shot EVP on the big Godzilla production. Make it big! Pay attention to sound. Write your script first!

A huge gang of mentors, including Page Wood and others turned out to kick up the heat on today’s scripts and get shots done. Today saw green screen, stop-action, live shots, voice overs and more. It’s becoming obvious that the new generation has no problem making movies!

Finally, Thanks to Mrs. Val Hata for all the snackies today!!! Wow the food direction really took a step up thanks to our very own Y. Hata & Company queen!

And a few parting shots… 🙂
