Equipment Used- Nikon Camera
What I like- The thing I love most about this video is how the video looks like a part of a 1950’s film. The use of the black and white with the noise and dusts and scratches. The camera angle is a high angle shot looking at a busy cross road where buses come and go, with people crossing the street. In the distance is the hill that leads away from Nottingham. The camera stays still on the railing along the bridge over the road.
For editing I made the footage black and white then cut up some of the footage and placed them together and mix them round with some of them going backwards. I want this to create more of an old take as to make it look like I took it in different takes trying to make it perfect.
The message behind the video is that even after 50 years things haven’t changed much through the years. With the music from the 1950’s playing as well I wanted the audience to feel relax no matter of the age from young to old.
What I mean from this experiment is how to cut pieces from the footage and add with also rewind the footage in the whole piece. If I could take this footage again I would add more footage focusing on people up close or take the footage in a more peaceful area.
