The Finished Product: Crunch Time

The Finished Product: Crunch Time | My Life | Scoop.it

  I'm finalizing my project as I type! I could not be any more excited to share this project with my friends, subscribers, and fans. It could not have been possible without the help of filmmaker and documentarian himself, Roger Hill. It has been a pleasure to put together this short documentary and see for myself the true values and hardships that go into the making of a documentary.


   This is only the beginning. From here, I hope to explore more and new ideas and start to think of something that needs more attention, more awareness, and whatever else it takes to make a difference. What I've learned during this experience is it's not the story that is most important, but how that story is told; how it passes along from one person to another, and how it resonates with a specific person. It only takes 1 to make a difference; it takes another to make a change.

 

    Make the change. Make a difference. Do whatever it is that you can in your power to take a little or big step in the right direction. Whatever it is that you love and support, there are ways to volunteer, to donate money, or time, to put in efforts, grand or small. There are no limits, no boundaries, no borders. Be the change that you want to be.

 

      Please take a look once I have finalized my project and published the short film on YouTube. Feedback and comments are very much appreciated. I am proud to call this work my first professional film (although I am lacking the proper equipment) and usually first work is the worst. I guess we will see what all of you guys think :)

     

Mallory Murphy's insight:

"Three more days until it's due! I'm finishing a bit early to get the documentarian's permission to put up the video to YouTube early. Can't wait for people to see it!"

1 Week Left till It's Due

Update since my last editing day on my documentary:

Today I emailed the documentarist himself of the film Flying Paper. I also worked a little bit more putting together my own video, moving transitions and adding photos when video wasn't needed. I've learned over time that sometimes the black space that accompanies a voice during video is powerful enough. However, the power of editing can be frustrating sometimes. I want to start over and redo stuff and publish it all at the same time. It’s driving me mad.

I have added a few more tracks I would like to work with off of Jamendo. They seem to be quite fitting for the mood I’m setting, which is telling of a story (someone else’s..in this case, how to make a documentary). Since it’s not a step-by-step process, it’s more of like the filmmaker giving advice to the audience. In the end, the last scene is the filmmaker asking questions from the audience at a Q+A, a fitting way to end it, in my opinion.

I hope that he will like my work and that I can publish it to YouTube. I want to inspire others to make their own work and to accomplish something they have always dreamed of. Just start now because the earlier, the better. It’s never too late!

Mallory Murphy's insight:

I have about 9 days since my final project is finished, we'll see if the video is everything that I hope it to be!

Paris | Sam Burton | My Life | Scoop.it


We were lucky enough to go over to Paris for a few days to take in the new year. It really is a beautiful city with plenty to photograph. Its a great place just to wander around and take in the surroundings. The weather wasn't too good for the first couple of days with a lot of rain. It finally cleared on our last day with clear skies and bright winter sunshine. Luckily we had left it to the last day to go up the Eiffel tower. We were only able to get up to the second level as the elevator to the top was broken, this still meant incredible views over the city. Here is a selection of some of my favourite shots from the trip, I plan to post another set soon. All the images were shot with the Fuji X-Pro 1 using the XF 35mm and 18mm lenses, processed with VSCO film and Rebecca Lilly presets.....

Bonjour! Have no shame, go and be a "typical tourist" forget what others think of you. The Eiffel Tower is an exquisite piece of architectural beauty, it's sleek design blends effortlessly into the sky and makes you feel some type of way. Visit it once during the day and at night. During the night Paris lights it up, and at the beginning of every hour for five minutes it goes crazy with sparkles of flashing lights that glitter throughout the city. You can even go to the top and get an amazing view of the city. Try to get your tickets in advance, the lines tend to be very long. (Chae Chung)

A Documentary Point of View

A Documentary Point of View | My Life | Scoop.it

I'm making a documentary. I've made a narrative and a music video thus far in my video skills career, but now it's time to take it to the next level. I need to learn the process of telling another person's story or view, allowing them to fully express themselves in front of a camera and for me to edit the content so they get the best, positive image that they can for themselves.

 

I'm working with a director and filmmaker (I will not mention his name here until I have his permission) and to help in the promotion of his new film, Flying Paper. A wonderful documentary based around the Gaza hardships and the present-day Palestinian conflict, it tells a tale of kite making that the young children take on as a hobby in their country.

 

My aim is to tell the tale of the director and how he came to be a professional filmmaker and documentarist. I hope my documentary goes well. I just want to convey someone else's story. We will see how it all turns out.

A Best Friend's Epiphany

A Best Friend's Epiphany | My Life | Scoop.it

My best friend and I have been laughing, sharing food, talking, sobbing, watching movies, and doing just about anything and everything best friends do for almost 15 years now. I didn't truly realize the time our friendship has spanned until we received very sad news one day.

 

I won't disclose what the news was, but I realize now that time is short and time well spent is precious. We as human beings are so caught up and consumed with the little things; like rushing and getting to work, picking up dinner from a restaurant, skipping a lunch date with a friend because you need to cram last minute for that final.

 

It's time that I slow things down a bit and not take for granted everything that is in front of me. I need to stop and think about things instead of merely glancing at a beautifully drawn portrait someone outside of Westfield mall has made. It's time I stop and think about if I really am spending my time the way I want it, and if not, isn't it time for a change?

 

We can all choose our own paths. We can all go in a path that has been already created. Or we can branch out and explore a new part of the path that has yet to be discovered. It is up to the individual to truly decide what they want to do in their own life. But it is this power where they can choose to stop and take the time to think about the little things. So, yes, I think I will take the path less traveled, and even spend a long enough time to stop and smell the roses.

Mallory Murphy's insight:

Just a little thought I'd share with everyone. An original piece by Mallory Murphy. :)
