A) Don't ask...
B) Some very basics storyboarding shot tips.
C) That's all I could think of, everytime I saw a soldier juggling his sword instead of attacking.
D) Long, slow motion shots allow you to spend time looking at what happens in the background.
Aang is also wondering why he's being ignored by the enemy.
I just saw something on TV that reminded me of this deviation of yours.
My dad called me into the living room to look at some scenery he saw on The Bachelorette. So, I waited for a few minutes, him being sure they'll show it again (and he won't quit bugging me until I see what he wants me to see - even though I told him it was probably just an establishing shot for the start of the scene).
I start noticing that they're using the exact same two shots over and over, and nothing else. Over the shoulder, over the other shoulder, over the shoulder, over the other shoulder, and so on and so on. (plus, most of the shots just showed one of them nodding their head) Though... The Last Airbender couldn't have been that bad, could it? Finally, they showed a third shot that showed both of them at the same time (mid-shot? hip up? been too long since I've heard about these things). Then they repeated the first two shots a few more times, and then the third shot a second time. After that, I just wouldn't put up with the merry-go-round anymore, and I think my dad gave up trying to get me to watch for that long shot.
(And now I wonder if I would've even noticed, if I'd liked that show. I might should pay attention to a show I do like to see how they do their shots.)
B) Ill admit,without dialogue it looks like a comedic pause where two characters stare awkwardly at each other over something weird. Were that the case I'd actually like the repetition but that's just me.
C) Aw, man, we totally could have done this with an Earthbender instead of a gun!
L O L too funny thank you thank you, the boat is my favorite though
no... air... laughing too hard
I assumed that bending moves in the movie were far more extensive than most in the TV series (while accomplishing less, bizarrely) because they were trying to stick to whatever martial arts forms they chose to use as background. But if they were doing that, then bending in the AU created for this movie doesn't make much sense as a common fighting form. Because it would be a LOT easier for people to whack each other with sticks or, say, STAB a bender with something pointy while they're busy trying to form walls and summon fireballs.
Just this movie... UGH...
I remember during that shot, I kept wishing the camera would just turn upside down or something to make the scene look somewhat interesting. xD
dude, I litterally fell of my seat^^
- I did wonder about that. I didn't see any ocean around.
B) Oh, yeah! That bugged the heck out of me. I couldn't put my finger on what it was. Thanks for clearing it up!
C) I seemed to recall that too. Hurray for Indiana Jones! (He's looking for those sun worshippers and their golden egg, right? Wait, that's the show. Never mind.)
D) ROFL! Can-can! I'd believe it if there *was* some of that going on!
Thanks for these! Keep it up!
It was exactly like you said. Dialogue would flash to Katara and Sokka, if they had dialogue, and then back to Aang for response. Over and over again, with no variation...
The first one was so freakin' funny! XD
A full, boring conversation, with those two uncomfortably-close shots being cut to 10 times each. Awesome.
Going to try not to rant, but the number of terrible cuts overall was pretty outstanding too. It's like it was filmed with no regard to continuity, with characters placed in one scene, then inexplicably somewhere else in the shot that immediately follows.
Graaah okay, gonna go draw stuff until I calm down >:T
'THEY'RE FOLLOWING US I JUST KNOW I--'
Fire Nation Ship: *BOOM* 8> ohai, we can has Avatar?
And at that D shot, i totally thought,
DAMN YOU GUYS, KILL THAT AVATAR! HE'S NOT PAYING ATTENTION NOW! >
