Today I have created a short lip sync video to the song Poker Face by Lady Gaga.
Being able to lip sync well and edit the footage to the song as well is a vital skill that needs to be obtained if you want to create a music video. That is why we as a class went out and did some lip syncing to understand how it works and how important it is to get a star who fits the voice and attitude of the song. There is also sometimes a problem of people over pronouncing the word which makes in look unrealistic and brings down the emergent factor.
I used Premiere Pro to edit together my video and when using it I made sure to develop my skills while using some of the tools. One of which is the marking tool, it allows me to mark a place on the cut and the be abel to snao any clip to that marker. It allows me to easily sink up the video with the voice which helps with the realism of the video.
What I would change or add on if I were to do it again:
- The most notable thing that I’d like to do next time is actually use the green screen. As it is obviously shown through the whole performance there is a green screen on the background. Using the green screen might allow for a more interesting video.
- Next I would add some transitions to allow for a smoother cut between clips as well as keeping the audience interested.
- The room with the green screen was a little small so it can be noted that people were cut out from time to time as if the camera moved in certain ways then it might show the roof or an area with out the green screen. They is also some shadows from the stars that fall onto the green screen at the back. If I had used the green screen then this might have posed an issue.
Though there are obvious flaws I am still responsibly happy with how the video cam out, I would obviously like it to be better. But now after creating my first lip sync video, I have a rough idea of what comes with it. So next time I’ll be able to come up with something much more interesting and polished.
