Production Final Project Description

For my final project for my Production class, I will be filming and editing a fight scene. At the moment I plan on having a number of students fight a group of soldiers that are armed with a fighting mech (may have to drop the mech for time reasons; we will see). I plan on using krav maga as the main fighting style for the video as it is a quick, fast and brutal fighting method. The students will also have powers to aid them in fighting off the soldiers and ultimately the mech. The video will be around 2.5 minutes as its cuts and visuals will be synced with a remix of Joan Jett’s song Bad Reputation.

At the moment I have the setting based in the woods to allow a larger fighting region, but whether or not I can carry out this plan will depend on the weather. NYS is very predictable with the weather so that should not be a problem (totally not sarcasm…). As for the mech in the video (should I carry out the idea), it will be a 3D rendered and animated asset composited into the shot. I plan to spend as much time as possible on this portion while still balancing time to shoot and edit principal photography.

In today’s world, communication is easier than ever. One can share the news with their friends and even the word immediately with a few simple clicks. While this is very helpful, it also comes with consequences, for everything is exploitable. All it takes is one lone wolf to share something malicious and sit back while watching the world burn. Of course, you’d expect people to know truth from fact, but we have become so dependent on social media that we have difficulty knowing true from false. In return, it is easier than ever to trick someone into viewing and sharing false information and watching a social realm collapse.
