Final Project | 2 Min Short | Every Second Counts

For this project I wanted to really push myself with video in a more cinematic approach. I wanted to do something dark, maybe a little spooky, but resources and time are limited, so I went with a more simple approach. The premise of the video is a car thief steals a car using a slim jim and key jiggler in under 90 seconds. I wanted to make it look as professional and realistic as possible with the cameras that LCC has to offer. I really wanted to focus on continuity between shots, along with camera angles that relay how intense the situation is.  I recorded the video in 1080P at 30FPS, so the quality is pretty solid, however the cameras do not perform that well in low light! I then recorded foley audio samples and processed them using ableton, and added them where necessary.  Every sound heard in the video was recorded, no camera audio was used. All in all, the shoot took roughly an hour, but most of my time spent was in editing and foley recording. Going back I would only change a few minor things, mainly just lighting issues within the car. Thankfully, I had the Ronin Stabilizer camera to shoot this over the weekend, so that was a huge advantage in the smoothness of the camera movement! Big shoutout to my friends for helping me, and starring in my movie for bag of cheetos and a beer! Would’ve added a few other shots had security not kicked us out for filming, but luckily we had most of it done so I just had to edit it a little differently! Was all edited in Adobe Premiere Pro, Shot on a Canon T6i with a 24mm Prime Lens and the Ronin MX2 stabilizer. All in all I am very happy with it, I hope you enjoy!
