I was debating uploading this film for the longest time.
Recently I took a film production course at UC Santa Cruz on the topic autobiographical film. I'm so used to being behind the camera, I wanted to challenge myself to be in the spotlight for once. If you know me personally, you probably know that I'm a pretty shy guy. It's pretty weird seeing myself on film and hearing my own voice, but I guess that's how it is for everyone. Regardless, I decided to just go for it. Love it or hate it, here it is.
This is a short film created for Autobiographical Film (171F) at UCSC. The prompt was that we make a film about a memory presented three different ways. I picked a very generic memory (skateboarding) and presented it at three key moments of my life: when I didn't know much about it, when I got into it, and how I recovered after my injury. According to my teacher, I did not follow the prompt, but still got an "A" haha.
Shot on Canon 5D with various Canon and Nikon glass. Overcranked footage captured on a friend's Canon 7D.
