22nd of November, Lisbon, almost 2000 students united and protested in Lisbon against the new governmental policies that highly prejudice Higher Education.
"1. The restitution of the students discount on public transportation;
2. Fairer scholarship allocation and social action;
3. More financing for the institutions of the Higher Education;
4. The end of the consecutive raises on tuition fees"
This was a challenging video to make, because the whole process took about 2 hours. I had to follow the demonstration the whole way, always running back and forth to cover most of the action without losing anything and spotting which sections of the croud were more active. When people stopped, I took some time to interview some of them.
It was also particularly challenging because I did this all alone. I had someone holding the Tascam for me during the interviews, but I barely looked at the camera while recording, which meant a total disaster when one of the guys decided to take some steps without me noticing. I scaled the video in Adobe Premiere and tried to frame him differently, so it wouldn't look so bad. I think the end result wasn't that bad afterall, I managed to do something with it.
Anyway, appart from that I'm really happy with what I've got! What do you guys think?
