I find it fitting that the new blog should start on a new month. I don't know how these work, but I thought I should give it a try and see where it goes.
During lockdown, it's easy to let one day slip into the next. I found myself doing this the first 2 weeks. I finally decided to get up and start doing something productive - other than school.
My doings and thinkings will be tracked on this blog. But what about today?
I decided to make a short film. Having Western Province Colours for Action Cricket (the tour was cancelled due to COVID-19), I made an instructional video!
Filming took 2 hours and was entirely shot on my balcony. To achieve the multi-cam setup, my brother (10 years) and I would film a line, move the tripod and then film the same line followed by the next. Edit out the repetition in post and violá.
This was my first experience with Adobe Premiere Pro. I previously used HitFilm Express (free) and iMovie (also free). Knowing HitFilm made the process much easier, but Premiere Pro is just so smooth and fantastic.
