What would we do without an army – a short film from Fotopub 2010
This is a video that I’ve made on Fotopub workshop under mentorship of Anna Stevens and Ervin Hladnik Milharčič. Anna Stevens is responsible for multi-vision production of PANOS pictures and Ervin Hladnik Milharčič is a journalistic legend. I learn greatly working with Anna and her direction in narration of movie and technical tips were really valuable. Ervin Hladnih Milharčič had a workshop on how to write a reportage and although I didn’t succeed in writing a reportage text, I used his tips in shaping narration of the story. One of his great tips was to write a reportage in a shape of scorpion. First pair of pincers to grab readers attention, followed (organically) with the rest of the body; head, body, legs and on the end a sting, that in reportage should be something worth remembering. I made this video with that in mind. I intend to develop it more, since it’s going along with a petition of Mladina weekly to demilitarize Slovenia.
I used Nikon D3s, iMovie, Garage Band and QuickTime.
