In this blog, I will discuss my current strengths and weaknesses and highlight key areas that I need to develop.
By making a short film all by myself, I have come to the realisation that pre-production is as important as production itself and post-production. I value all three stages in the same way, because if one stage goes wrong it will have an effect on the others.
One of the other strengths that I have developed by working in teams in university and outside of the university is my communication. I aim to be as active as possible to make sure any team can rely upon me so that we can deliver high-quality films before our deadlines.
I have taken every opportunity to work with a variety of equipment that is industry standard, like the DSLRs, LED Go and Black Magic cameras. By working with these equipments, my capability of making a high-quality film has increased.
Currently, my weakest points are audio and editing. I taught myself how to work with iMovie but now am working on mastering Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro or Davinci Resolve. I have no doubt that these weak points will become my strengths at the end of my bachelors.
Alongside my filming skills, I also write and speak fluent English, Nederlands and Punjabi.
