Being an Intern in a company

There are set goals I have achieved for myself in my former company LBL content Firstly, being able to master the basics of video production and understanding the terms of my task. Image, colour and sound are an important role in video production because it tones the feelings and emotion.

During my internship I had to set and implement three learning objectives and on which I had to concentrate during my internship. Furthermore, with the help of the SMART method I formulated my learning objectives.

My first goal was to be able to complete a project individually. I achieved this by making commercials and foodclips for Jumbo and DHL, using Adobe programs such as Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro and Photoshop.

My second goal was to master the art of colour grading. As editor I always wanted to improve my colour grading techniques. Colour correction plays a very important role in films because there is also a much larger side that I did not know. The colour gives a feeling and emotion of a piece and thus influences how we ultimately interpret the clip.

My last goal was learning the basics of a DSLR Camera. The basics included the Shutter speed, ISO and aperture. The main functions of a camera are the following: focus, zoom, aperture, shutter speed, white balance and volume settings. In order to be able to make good quality recordings, these functions are very crucial. When I filmed I was setting the focus and determined what should be in focus. By bringing a person or object into focus, it gets the attention or focus of the viewer.
Focusing can be done in two ways; automatically and manually. Automatic focus is useful when several people or objects need to be clearly in focus from a distance. I also had to take into account the desired depth of field ratio in my image. The depth of field determines how many people or objects appear sharply within a certain distance.

Without light there is no beautiful picture and it is quite ugly in color. It can, of course, be solved by adjusting the I.S.O. but that does have an effect with the quality. The amount of light that passes through the lens on the sensor of the camera is determined by the size of the lens aperture. Its effect can be compared to the iris of the eye. A larger aperture allows more light than a smaller one. The size of the aperture can be changed by adjusting the aperture. My colleagues had a lot of outdoor tasks to film and went to specific locations. We followed the script with the given locations. As an intern I tagged along and got a lot of experience from it.
