My Yogurt (Connor)
My Yogurt, A film by Connor Mulvaney Written by Jonathon Christian.
An argument breaks out between two roommates over missing yogurt. But is that really all they are fighting about?
This was filmed very simply with a lot of restraints. It consisted of me filming my dad and sister in our hallway. I enjoyed working with these restrictions and being very deliberate with my choices. This was pretty much how all the versions of this were filmed so the focus was on seeing what could be done given the limitations. What would be the most interesting area to film? Where would allow for the most character movement and interactions? What camera angles and movements would bring the film out best?
This film was a bit challenging for me due to some of the limitations that come with film remotely in less than optimal spaces. This version of the film is one of many versions I’ve made. While it’s not the best version of the film, it was a great exercise to try new things, whether they worked out or not. There are a lot of things that I’d want to fix in this film, the lighting isn’t great which led to a very rough attempt at colour grading to cover this up. I don’t think I did a very good job at either of those aspects but I now know what to do if I were to make this again. I feel this has been a reoccurring theme for this course, trying new things, learning from them, and fixing them in the next iteration. This is how I prefer to look at this film, not as a final piece but as a stepping stone to something better.
