HALLWAY (2017) 

This short film was my final submission for our film class at Harz University.

For this project the class was divided into groups of 5-6 students. Each studend had control over the production of his own short film while the rest of the group filled the remaining roles on the crew. I was responsible for the full pre-production including script, storyboard, location scouting and casting. During the shoot I acted as the director and also operated the camera from time to time. Following that the post-production was all mine again. I used Avid Media Composer for the editing then went over to Premiere for color correction and added some effects using After Effects. I finished the project by creating a soundtrack combining our own recordings with industrial sound effects and music using Avid Pro Tools.

Since this was my first experience with filmmaking everything was new and plenty mistakes were made but I learned valuable lessons in the progress. Luckily my team consisted of a group of good friends who were very passionate about filmmaking and eager to learn and try stuff out. Our camera was the Sony A7R II and we had a gimbal, a boom mic, and a couple of lights available to us.
