If you ask me today what my favorite film is, although it's a difficult
question, I might have to tell you it's "Amélie", a 2001 French
film with the right combination of color temperature, fanciful clues, a
script with meandering logic sequence, and the kind of camera work that
made all mentioned above make sense altogether.
Up until this year, that is 2013, I have fumbled through the world of video making purely from self-study and practice. I did filming and editing for 2 weddings, 1 three hour long staged cultural event, 3 music performances, 1 Karate training course. During the process, I learned so much from techniques of camera operating, audio performance, video editing tricks in transition, special effects, color grading, to how to deliver a final DVD/Blue-Ray with polished details. I also learned a lot from other photographers and DJs I worked with on how to adapt to the pace of the event and capture the best at the right moments.
This year, 2013, I started taking classes at NJ Film School to open up more windows in this field and receive professional guidance. I was especially inspired on the artistic creative process of film making and how I could incorporate that with event video.
