Intention (SMART Goal)

By March 2nd, as part of team 4, as an editor, I will control color and learn how to edit with film language by using The Visual Story by Bruce Block by the end of post-production, Session 4.


Leader(s) in the Field / Exemplary Work(s)

Sally Menke from Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill Vol 1”

Born on December 17, 1953, in Mineola, New York. She was known for specifically Quentin Tarantinos She died on September 27, 2010, in Los Angeles.

Smooth editing made me want to learn how to edit myself.

Training Source(s)

The Visual Story by Bruce Block

Cue: Express the feeling in the film right now
Colors = Significance


Skills Commentary

I edited the film together and had to replace some audio tracks with ADR. Then for controlling color which was my smart goal, I put a black and white filter over the film to give it more of a dark comedy feel making the film more serious than it actually is. Also since the background was green it was a little distracting so the black and white smoothed everything out.


21st Century Skills

Ways of Thinking (Creativity, Innovation, Critical Thinking, Problem Solving)

Ways of Working (Communication & Collaboration)

During Pre-Production as a team, we all went to the filming location to plan out the shots, lighting and re-wrote some of the scripts to make it better.

Reactions to the Final Version

“Concentrate on what we did well and rather than what we did bad”


Self-Evaluation of Final Version

The finished film was good, I thought I did a good job editing for the most part except that some of the ADR didn’t match the scenes sometimes and was unsynchronized.

What I Learned and Problems I Solved

I learned that as a part of a team I should communicate with the cinematographer that the lighting should be a bit brighter if we were going to put a black and white filter over the film because in the finished product some shots were a bit dark.
