Triggered – A Short Film – 4D Final Project

Triggered : A hostage rescue


Incase the video isn’t showing up:

I had plenty of fun trying out and editing the action sequence; alas the amateurish attempt to capture the quickness of such a genre. Nevertheless, it was something refreshing that I have never experienced before, and would certainly endeavour to do should the chance arise again. 

Action sequences required a lot of on-the-spot planning despite having a storyboard beforehand, and knowing the area intimately as well. Cuts and character flipping had to be carefully observed, as well as lighting within a dark room also had to be checked such that audiences are able to see the actors.

1) What should I do?
2) Time’s ticking.
3) It stinks/ This stinks.
4) Maybe.
5) You can try.
6) What.
