The creative process
How did I get to this video? I saw a small stream leaving a woodland pond after a recent rain. I heard it. How do I show what I'm seeing and hearing? Still, video, and audio are available but where to start? Still shots show black water, no sound or movement. Video is the way to go. First the establishing shot. Now to show flow and movement, zoom in on the bubbles. Can the bubbles be shown bursting, fire up the slow motion video option. Wow, look at the reflection in the bubbles, let's work with them. The stream is flowing, show it leaving and re-establish the scene. The video ends. Now to the finished product.
