During the editing process so far, I feel as though I have made a dramatic improvement. I have learnt how to stabilize clips, colour correct, render and ensure that the clip fits with the rhythm and pace of the music. As for our colour bleed idea, we haven’t quite mastered that just yet. I feel as though we may need a few more lessons to ensure this looks really good. We also haven’t completely finished filming our music video so there are many gaps that need feeling. We as a group have decided to leave all the advanced editing until we have got an edit that we are truly happy with.
The editing that we have done looks pretty standard at the moment but I will still like to get a move on and start making it more visually interesting. There are definitely moments where I feel could be improved and that might slow us down in the long run. But I am fairly confident that we can do this!
Here are some of the techniques I have learnt whilst editing:
- Cropping footage
- Colour correcting
- Editing precisely to match the lip syncing
- General organisation (With files etc)
- Removing grain
- Stabilizing footage
So far, everything looks excellent and I can’t wait to do even more.
Here are a few screenshots from the edit:
Here is the software that we are using (Premiere Pro) and this is how everything looks from the editors perspective.
Here I played around with a strobe effect and ended up editing to the beat very precisely. It looks really good and I am very proud! I did this by cutting and deleting the footage in really small amounts.
Here is evidence of my organisation. Here is the audio that we are using which is stored separately to the other footage which is organised into separate folders.
This is the warp stabilizer effect which i sue to stabilize shaky footage. It is excellent for fixing up hand held shots.
