With all this talk about spying these days, it was amazing to meet Dragana Jurišić this afternoon, the niece of a real life spy (forced into the espionage business by the Yugoslav government) who died under mysterious circumstances in Paris, 1987.
This story has been captured, in part by Dragana’s latest exhibition, ‘My Own Unknown’, at Dublin’s Gallery of Photography. Well worth a visit (but unfortunately ended today, 25th March 2018)! Dragana is also an author and very talent artist and photographer. Check out her website (http://www.draganajurisic.com) for more!
Shot and edited entirely with an iPhone 6s using the native iOS camera app and Luma Fusion by Luma Touch to edit. I used earbubs as a microphone - totally workable but a RØDE Microphones #Smartlav+ would've sounded so much nicer today as I could've clipped it on her much higher than I asked her to hold it!
I used the native camera app as the interviewee didn't seem to have a lot of time so I wanted to be able to shoot as quickly as possible and in one take. The framing is unconventional but we both wanted to capture that wonderful picture of her in the background!
Key learning outcomes: Preview, trim and mark as 'favourites' all videos before starting to edit. This speeds up workflow by reducing the need to mess around with long clips in Luma Fusion. Also reduces Luma Fusion file size saving precious storage space on device!
