Feedback And Review w/c 9.1

This week has all been about camera movements and its been very informative because it gives me a better look on how to keep my work interesting even if the actors are staying completely still i could incorporate weather, I’ve learnt a lot on how to give a scene a smooth flow however i feel I need more practice in actually doing it but I’m sure the more i do it the better I’ll become, i found it useful because of watching scenes with this smoothness, I think it looks incredible and I’d love to incorporate it more into my work. i think what we have learnt this week is crucial because it shows us what we can create using a little more effort we can create smooth scenes with seemingly invisible transactions and just a masterpiece in the filming world.
