Again i was promised before i signed in to this school (by Dennis and Joel who both unfortunately unavailable) but anyway i was promised in the industry experience attending movies and tv shoots which never happened till today and i am left with 5 months in the course, i never established any connections in the field till now!

Studio visit, November 20thPosted by Abdallah Mohsen Mohamed on 2018-11-21

My mentor asked me to go to his studio for a music shoot that will take place at 10:00 AM i went earlier and watched the crew setting the studio for a Japanese music video for a Japanese band (as per my mentor's advise) anyway, it was interesting to see the tools that i've studied (example lights worked with KENO and HMIs and couple of bounces to bounce the light of the original source) It was interesting to see director in action while they were shooting, I've asked my mentor about couple of things on sets as usual he was helpful, we went through chapter 14 quiz answers Ive also visited a place called “Blue Tape” for renting props (as per my mentor's advise) which was an interesting experience as well,   I can say it was a good productive day, I'm happy with the day as i've learned alot   Read More >>
