This is my first evaluation on my production skills on the media production of my music video, during this process I have learnt a lot especially on Adobe Premiere Pro.
First of all importantly starting of for our music video we learnt to cut down shots and position them on the timeline so the clip changes with the beat, we were able to effectively do this by on the timeline we could see the audio graph of where the audio drops, speeds up etc, from this were able the start the clip and drag it on the drop and consistently do this, in addition to ensuring that the lip sync of our male performer was synced to the lyrics which came from the similar technique of cutting and positioning of the clips as previously stated, this helped me technically develop my skills in Premiere Pro, below is a screenshot of me in edit achieving this :
Some new skills that I have learnt is how to stabilize our video, for example we shot clips, they were unstable and could be seen visually on the video, then we learnt about ‘Warp Stabilizer’ by which we were able to stabilize our video, we did this by :
Searching ‘warp’ in the effects tab in the top right corner
Then finding ‘Warp Stabilizer’ under the distort folder
Then dragging it on the clip in the timeline that we wanted
This helped us significantly on our product as it enabled or video visually to be conventional being steady and professional. Also we identified color corrections and filters while exploring Adobe Premiere Pro, we did this by going on the color tab then under lumetri color tab which can be seen present in the picture below, with this feature we were able to implement a autumnal feel to our clip and exposed shots also which provided an elegant look to our female performer in the narrative, in addition we also implemented black and white which provides a memoric/flashback feel which we were still deciding on whether we wanted in our video, with this skill this made our music video provide meaning and conventional to our genre by implementing these effects via color corrections.
Overall, I have extended and furthered my knowledge of editing in Adobe Premiere Pro which will enable me to ensure that our music video is conventional, and aesthetically pleasing visually.
