Moving Images – Framing

The story of getting a haircut at Renaissance Barber & Co.

I did not exactly create a traditional storyline but more of a documentary approach that was progressive. Here, it shows the different expressions and stages the customer is carefully going through to reach the endpoint which is a fresh new look.

I personally feel the 16:9 cropping really helps to make an ordinary documentation give a more cinematic effect. I also tried playing with a lot of different angles of the close ups with only one establishing shot as I didn’t have much space to move around.

Overall I felt doing some planning into your story board and framing will help a fair bit once you start shooting!

Also as was mentioned in feedback, I left the last frame as the photo of the hair on the floor as opposed to the washing hair scene and felt it made a better ending.
