Week 1 - Staging, Composition and Planning

Yay, i'm back to AM and in Class 3 already...

Goal of the first Week was to plan a new shot or a series of 3 shots for the whole term and i decided to do three different shots :)

These were the themes we could choose of:

1. Obstacle course
2. Super hero school
3. Olympian training
4. Soccer Star
5. Weight loss gym
6. Espionage service
7. Construction site
8. On the playground
9. Pick your own theme

I chose "Pick your own theme" and thought of an overcomplicated shot with 200f where my character should run, fall down, do a few painful bounces on the head and body and finally coming to a rest. Then coming back up and seeing the bus, she was supposed to reach driving away, and her sad reaction to it.

Yeah. It was too much. I'm now doing: running, falling down, coming up, being devastated.
