Using both hands in the Film

I decided to play around with the idea of using both hands in my film because I was able to create more gestures with both hands. Showing typical hand ticks people may experience when they are anxious, stressed or annoyed at a situation. Playing with your finger nails, rubbing your hands together and tapping your fingers on a surface are all signs of distress. I wanted to explore this idea through a film along with the Echo video effect on Premiere Pro. I felt with two hands in the film, it created more emotion within the gestures because they are more able to tell a story than just one hand. I decided to keep the colour in this film because I felt it made it more life-like. I also wanted to try the Echo effect on the two hands with colour so see how the colours would be distorted.
