Video Production



Professional Photo.jpg

My senior project is about seeing the production of a narrative short film from start to finish. I will take you from conceptualization of the idea to delivery of the finished product. To fill my 50 hour requirement, I spent time writing the script, storyboarding my shots, arranging crew & cast, shooting, and editing. I will show you detailed examples of every step of the process. For preproduction I will show: the finished script, storyboard, and any other pre-production documents. For production, I have a behind-the-scenes video shot by one of my crew members which will give a good idea of the shoot day and environment on set. For post-production I will show screenshots of every aspect of the editing process from assembly & cutting to color correction/grading and visual effects.

This project is a culmination of all the skills and knowledge I have gained from my time as a Video Production student at BYU-Idaho and I hope to show every aspect of my passion for the process.
