“I don’t care about anybody but myself, can’t you tell?” •
Guys, I’m so excited because I’ve finished writing for my characters and sets. Keep watching so you guys can see what I’m talking about. Remember, what I’m sharing are characters and stories. Also, I’m excited with how the photos came out and the editing. Speaking about editing....
Can you believe this is unedited? All it took was a bit of make up and good lighting. It’s better when you can control lighting or if you can edit the colors and shadows of a photo in post- super easy to do but sometimes, I’m just feeling lazy. Usually, I like to edit because it’s another creative skill I get to practice that gives me more control and enables me to truly direct what the audience sees out of my creation, a big filmmaking lesson I’ve learned throughout my years- editing is everything... but so is lighting. I’m trying to learn more about how lighting plays with cinematography without needing to edit or color grade. This shot is straight out of the camera, unedited- you can see with my skin... I’ve been a bit lax on my routine which isn’t good but hey, what can you do? 🤷🏻♀️ I wanted to show you all how easily manipulated a camera and a photo can be. My own flaws are left in the photo, unedited- but the overall is acceptable enough, you can gloss over them, and if you’re not paying attention, completely miss them. But they’re still there, and they’re real, and if you look hard enough, you can catch a glimpse of the harsh reality: imperfection.
The concept? “Too cool to care.” A character I’ve been writing for a while now.
I’m finding solace in satirical takes on media and the relationship between audience and creator. The research is pretty easy but the lessons are hard to digest. As long as you look good, you can be bad. So many films have the same themes written subtly within them. You just have to know how and where to read. What do you guys think about that?
