Production Skills Evaluation 2
Our group had Lenny Lenfestey come into our class and give us feedback on our music video, the main bit of feedback he gave us was that the performance image angles are really good, however they need to be slightly colour corrected so that they all match and it will make it more aesthetically pleasing for the audience. He taught us some more technical skills such as:
- The echo effect,
- The adjustment layer,
- The Vignette effect, that frames the image,
In this first screenshot, I used an echo effect when our performer is being pushed on the swing.
Overall this helped develop my skills in all these fields, especially technical skills where Lenny, taught me how to add echo layer, which makes our videos look more like a memory when we use that effect especially as we’ve added an adjustment layer over the top which is a Sepia like effect, this aids to the idea of it being a flashback, the reason for these effects are that in the video we need to clearly display that she’s looking back on memories as opposed to it being in real life. This helped me improve my technical skills and showed an improvement when I next went onto Premiere Pro.
Here we used colour correction in which we then added onto an adjustment layer so we could lay this over all our rose clips. This colour correction enhanced the reds within the image, to make the key flower stand out.
We used more video transitions to give our video more fluidity, as it create a smoother transition between our narrative (the flashbacks) and our performance (the present). We used the technical skill to layer the performance over the narrative, this also represents how her memories are still with her and are interlinked.
