Making A Montage

After filming our montage, I created this video using premier pro, creating titles and transitions to make it more exciting and pleasing on the eye to my audience, this furthered my knowledge of using the different software for our music video’s.

This is our preparation of making our montage, we created a storyboard of 16 separate shots that we were going to shoot and the cinematography that we were going to use.



  1. the use of match on action
  2. the use of a variety of different shot distances
  3. I also used some transitions in my montage. like the blackout and the dissolve.


  1.  I should have included more close ups of his face to get more reactions of his face.
  2. I should have used a eye line match
  3. I could have used more locations of the shots to make it more interesting.

After learning how to add titles, music and putting transitions into my work using premier pro, I have also leant how to use premier pro more and how to add in and make sure I have included my cinematography to get the best images I can when I’m filming. I will now use the cinematography I have learnt to use and premier pro to get the best out come for my music magazine.

Preliminary Task Dialogue

  • I have used the following camera techniques of shot reverse shot, close up, mid shot to help my audience follow the narrative of the clip.
  • I used these techniques to create a sense of the relationship between the two characters and how they are getting along.
  • I have learnt to use the following continuity editing rules the 180 degrees rule, shot reverse shot and the eye-line rule.
  • I used these rules to make sure that my clip was the best it could be and so that I didn’t go over the 180 degrees rule, the other rules made sure I didn’t do break them.
  • I have learnt to use the following tools/techniques in Premiere Pro such as making my clip flow continuously in a montage way, embedding and cutting my separate videos.
  • I used these tools to make sure that my clip flowed freely and made sure that you couldn’t hear anyone else talking in the video by cutting their voices out.
  • If I was to do this project again I would do some things differently i would make sure  had a two-shot of both the characters as the first shot so my audience would get a proper narrative of what is going to happen in the short clip. I would also put in some match on action to make it more interesting and engaging for my reader.
