Production skills evaluation 1

Through working on the second draft of our music video I have acquired a new set of skills on premier pro. Before we started the music video I had very little experience on premier pro and the only skill I knew was how to cut videos and put them together, other than that I had no knowledge of how to do anything else. Whilst editing draft 2 of our music video we knew we would have to experiment with the different feature premiere pro offers, otherwise our music video would not demonstrate much skill at all.

One of the skill I now have is how to manipulate the speed duration of a music video, through this you are able to either speed up or slow down a video. This helped give a sense of drama to our clips, for example we slowed down the waves crashing on the beach as they were used as a contextual reference of how the star is feeling.

When we were experimenting with different speeds we noticed that there was an option for reverse speed, we added this in order to show the manic emotions of the star as it helps to convey how she is sort of stuck in the past. Above shows how we were able to achieve this.

Due to glitch in the software a flash that was in one of our clips would not successfully transfer to our main video. This led to us having to create our own flash through premiere pro, to do this we had to create another shot on premiere pro which is essentially just a block of white and layer it over the main clip and cut it down to the length we wanted. It was important for us to remember to layer it over the clip so they did not appear as to individual scenes.  Above shows how this was done.

When we would drag some of the clips down to put them together some of the videos would appear smaller than the previous video, in order to make it bigger we learnt that we had to double on the video on the left hand side and simply pull up on one the corners to enlarge the clip.
