Progress in Progress

Graham Burns Created by Graham Burns Plus

This is a channel specifically for workshopping and improving projects you are currently working on, as well as reworking old project that you want to revisit with a fresh perspective. This channel encourages and almost requires specific and constructive feedback in comment fields as opposed to general positive feedback such as, "Love it," or "great video!" The goal here is for filmmakers/artists to get constructive critique on works in progress and ultimately all learn with each other and help each other grow and get better at making films/videos.

This is a channel specifically for workshopping and improving projects you are currently working on, as well as reworking old project that you want to revisit with a fresh perspective. This channel encourages and almost requires specific and constructive feedback in comment fields as opposed to general positive feedback such as, "Love it," or "great video!" The goal here is for filmmakers/artists to get constructive critique on works in progress and ultimately all learn with each other and help each other grow and get better at making films/videos.

Some important things to remember/think about durring critique:

1. What about the film/video works well? Example: "The sound of the floor boards creaking at 2:24 really help to create a suspenseful mood."
Try to be as specific as possible, that way the artist has something concreate to work on and think about.

2. What if anything distracts you from the story, or pulls you out from the space of the piece? Example: "The shaky camera from 6:44-7:20 distracted me from what was actually going on in the shot, and didn't really fit with the overall style of the piece."

3. At what stage of the process is the piece at? Example: if the piece is just a 1st rough cut you will probably try to look at it differently than a piece on it's 6 or 7th cut.

4. Ask questions either in a message to the filmmaker or in a comment post. Find out what the artist's goal is with the project.

5. Try to asume positive intent with peoples comments. We are all here to help on another get better and ultimately improve our work.

6. Have Fun!
