What would we do without an army – a short film from Fotopub 2010

with 7 comments

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.

  1. Hey there! I forgot to mention it to you yesterday, but i really liked this video withoud voiceover better,as it had a more humorous feel. Still, this video was the best in the multimedia category.

  3. Oto, many of you preferred the first version (without voice off), but that’s because first version caught you unprepared (tractor, stop motion, dogs, horses,…) so when you saw a complete (second) version it was like explaining the joke.

    I will show the same two versions to few random people, but I’ll show them final version first, then first (without voice-over) version. I bet you nobody will prefer first version!

    Do you want to bet?

    THX Matjazzzzzz! Super, da sta s Cirilom uletela. Vinšek je dan kasneje. Sveta trojica Fotopuba 🙂
