Slenderizing An Edit

Re-Editing a 60 Second film, from a 2 minute source

Valerio Morini’s second video in his series of quick lectures dedicated to technical analysis of short films. In this video Valerio focuses on the topic of editing: How to reduce a 2 minutes film to a minute without change the story. Valerio calls this process “slenderizing”. This exercise is based on the new Apple commercial for iPad titled “Homework”.

Velario takes us through the edits of the original 2 minute commercial film, and the official 1 minute version, in a Da Vinci Resolve timeline. He also creates his own 1 minute version using his own unique criteria.

Making short films, with Tony Rungsawang

Tony Rungsuwan

Tony Rungsawang is a young up and coming Thai director and cinematographer. He has submitted two powerful films to The 60 Second Film Festival. Tony joined us at The 60 Second Film Festival studio for a quick interview about his filmmaking ideas, tools, and techniques.

60 Second Film Festival TV # 1

According to Tony, the short duration of the 60 second format lends itself well to a single shot with no edits, so both of his films are single takes.

Good Person

Story

Tony told us that his main criteria for a short film story is something that resonates with him emotionally. In Good person he finds emotion in unexpected places. Good Person asks us to see past our vanity, to look deeper at those less fortunate than ourselves, beyond surface conditions a deeper story is revealed.

Production

Tony experiments with various techniques, to serve his story. Good Person employs a challenging single take tracking shot using a Ronin stabilizer, to great effect. Also shot with a 70D to take advantage of the cutting edge autofocus system.

Car Park Blues

Story

Tony wanted to tell a story about a homosexual relationship in non-provocative fashion. Young Thai’s are often very open and accepting about sexuality. This film is a statement.

Production

Tony takes technique to the next level in Car Park Blues. He used an FM anamorphic adapter lens attached to a GH5 to get a stunning cinematic look, as well as a shoulder rig to create a naturalistic camera shake, which compliments the casual verity style of storytelling.

Post Production

Tony goes for what he knows in post production, editing and finishing in Adobe Premiere.
