The fourth, and final, video was filmed in my dorm’s bathtub. For this video, I used both my Canon EOS Rebel T1i and a waterproof Kodak camera (both shoot in HD.) The bathtub, although uncomfortable, was the only place I could submerge the model in water and keep the black background. Also, it’s pretty hard to find someone with a pool in Columbus and it would still be difficult to add a dark background. The biggest difficulties I found in using the bathtub was that te underwater camera was too close to the body when submerged, and as I worked under water I could barely see the screen of the camera. Another problem was that the water was very shallow, and when the models submerged their heads only part of their noses would be under water and thus water would go up their nose.
What have I left to say about this project? Well, I will definitely be making more videos in the future. I enjoyed making the videos and am very pleased with the final results! Not only did I experiment with filming the videos but I also learned how to use iMovie, Final Cut Pro, and After Effect (a little.)
To end this post I would like to add a little extra present in the form of a blooper reel.
