    Default Science documentary

    Since I got my iPhone I am basically filming everything I see

    In fact I think I have a real future in hard-science documentary film making - see below

    Believe it or not, I filmed and edited this little gem in less than a day!

    Personally the beginning didn't work for me. It was too short to comfortably read, and the fade into the same shot didn't mesh well. Also, this really wasn't a documentary. You basically just walked and talked holding your video cam (the phone), but without actually really telling us anything or showing us much. We even got some shots of stairs?

    I would suggest doing the audio and video separately. Take some shots (without moving) of your subject at various angles while the audio soundtrack (your voice-over) with some information about the subject to keep us, the viewer, intrigued enough to keep watching.

    I will post my 1st attempt at a documentary (with no real planning or experience) on here in a couple mins. to give you an idea of what I mean.

    No problem brother! I really like this forum, it has helped me tremendously in the short time I've been here. Just like experience, learn something new everyday.

    Astonishing. The script itself must have taken ages. Loved the shots of the stairs, the 'thanks' to someone holding a door open for you, and the detailed explanations. I am now alot wiser about the entrance hall to Lab 13.

    Don't worry, building 13 has a lot more to it than just the entrance hall -- plenty more to come!

    Wow! That looks (and sounds) like it's going to be epic. But will it cut the mustard? So many films fail to live up to the hype of their trailer.
