Osakalovers is about Osaka-born lovers in Osaka. Yeah, not really a deep story I’m afraid.

This video was made for a competition 3 years ago. At that time I had to make a 30 second version according to the rules but was totally unhappy with the result as I had to cut out a lot of footage and I felt the audio also didn’t fit. That’s why I decided to re-edit, include the footage I wanted, re-do the audio and make my own “proper” version.

Due to my busy schedule the editing went really really slow. One hour here, one hour there. Maybe in total, 3 to 4 weeks if I worked every day for 8 hours a day.

This is my first project that I have shot and edited alone. It was much harder than I expected. I think I underestimated the work. I was hoping to be able to use a plugin to rotoscope the persons in the shots but somehow that plugin didn’t work and was using a lot of RAM on my pc so I had to manually rotoscope, every frame, about 30 frames a second. A. pain. in. the. *ss. And im STILL unhappy with some of the shots here and there. The most difficult part was rotoscoping the characters in the flowerfield, holy sh*t.

Another issue was that I had only one day to shoot so I had to travel from location to location and make sure to get everything on “tape” before it got dark. Ruined/missed a lot of shots due to the rushing.

I loved doing this project and I learned a lot.

– Take your time to shoot. Don’t jam everything in one single day.
– Shoot long takes, always wait 2 or 3 seconds before and after the take, otherwise you get a “rushed footage”
– This is probably the most important rule but make sure your framing is correct when you record. DUH
– When using people, make sure their fashion/color fits your concept.
– Always bring extra batteries for the camera, duh!
– Don’t underestimate post production work.
– Bring a shotlist (iPhone)
– Make and bring storyboards (scan/upload them to your iPhone)
– Bring a beer to celebrate after you finished the shooting.

– There’s probably a few donts but I can’t think of any right now.
