Today we started on our first exercise. It was to take one shot of anything that caused in us some sensation. We could choose any one sense , like touch, smell, sound, and shoot what gives us the sensation .
We did our first exercise on the mobile phone. Making films was so easy ! We formed teams for every shot: A director, actors, cameraperson. We called out the commands , like, Actor ready ? Camera ready ? Going for take ! Action !
Those who finished their shot, wrote out their shot and drew a storyboard of their shot.
We had great fun as we love being outdoors , with the world of sensations all around us !
Participants on their first shot in Exercise 1 on Sensations
Nived K N
I took a shot. The shot was about the sensation of touch.
So I took a shot of the cool water coming into our hand.
I took a shot on the sensation of taste. One kid is eating a fruit. I shot that. The kid, Dev is enjoying the fruit. ( It turned out that he had actually had a hard time munching on a raw chikoo, which had a bitter taste to it!
Ambadi N B
I took a shot on the sense of sight. I showed a kid looking for some seeds. I took it from the actor’s point of view.
Sreehari P Manoj
I wanted to show the sense of smell. So I asked Ambadi to crush some leaves which give off a strong smell. I shot him crushing and smelling them.
Sona V S
Today was the first day of my CCAJ- CFA. I selected the sense of touch. Niharika is picking some flowers to show the feel of the flowers.
Anjana P S
I wanted to convey the sense of sound. I show Ambadi going to a window and knocking to see if someone is in there. I only shot that.
Mohammad Musafir Arif
Today I took my first shot. The shot I took today was one person is touching the flower and the plant. I drew what I shot in my storyboard.
I took a shot of the hearing sensation. Musafir is riding a cycle. He hears his friend calling. He turns back on hearing this call. By this, I tried to show the sensation of hearing.
Akshaya C R
In my shot, I wanted to show the sensation of touch. I showed Sona touching the wall of our school, the rough bricks .
Today I took my first shot.I took the shot of the cycle’s pedal making a sound. I saw that and I heard that.
Today is the day of CCAJ-CFA session . I wanted to show the sensation of touch (pain). So my friend shot me falling down and getting hurt. At that moment, we feel the sensation of pain so much. I wasn’t hurt much, though!
I took a shot of a hand opening a book. The sunlight falling on the pages. I wanted to convey the feel of the new pages of the book , the sunlight and the slight breeze that blows. I wanted to convey the beautiful feeling I get when I read in the garden.
This was one of the most enjoyable days at school as we were busy doing so many things together . We even sucked on some tamarind seeds from our school ground, nibbled on watermelon slices and dates cake too!
