So I have finished Ganga Talao documentary film at last. It was really nice experience working with DSLR camera but also needed a lot more attention during shooting compare to working with mini DV or DV camera and even I was using Nikon D5000 which has very basic feature for shooting and also quality is not so good at all.
I have done this documentary in two part. First I had finished most of the shooting for around 70% of the length and then had to wait for the main festival called Shivaratri. That was really great time while shooting with the huge crowd when no space for a single step.
The film has done with very limited people and I would really like to say thanks to David Humphreys and Hanshini. The script, Direction, Shooting, Narration and Editing did by me and I have also done music of the Shivratri. I really thankful to David Humphreys as he helped me to correct and edit the script. Also very much thankful to Hanshini as she helped me lot during the entire filmmaking process. She coordinated me and without her help, it would be hard to finish this film.
I admit and know few things which I could improve.
- Camera shakes in few shots
- Voice over in last part of the film
Camera shake: That was known issue as I didn’t have much budget to get hight quality rig equipment for DSLR
Voice over at last part of the film: This problem I could ignore if I would get more time. This problem happened because of my throat pain.
I know these excuses can be never considered in professional work and that’s why I will try to re-record last voice over the part when I will get bit time. Unfortunately, I cannot re-shoot jerky shot again but that also will try to fix it by stabilizing the footage.
