Enjoying so much of the weather, the islands, the food and other things, I forgot to mention more about the video work. It was a great learning experience. I think at time is was hard work, mostly because of dragging he equipment around. At the same time that is part of the full experience of video work. I really enjoyed the film work and working with the team. It was true hands-on experience, and so much good learning came from that.
One of the things that we continually worked on was speed, to set up and get everything ready for the shot in 10 or 5 minutes. It seems like 5 minutes plenty of time, but when you are trying to get the shot “just right” it can be hard to do. In the past few days we’ve done a good job at setting up quickly. At the same time I am thankful to work under pressure because it helped sharpen my skills that I am sure are necessary in the job Place.
Overall I think that the experience helped me see how I things will be if I go and get a job in a production company. Once can read many books about video production and listen to many lectures, but the hands-on work experience I think brings a whole lot more learning.
