When editing my music video on Premiere Pro I have learnt some new skills which I can use throughout the production process to help when making the rest of the video and the other drafts.
I have learnt how to add some effects such as cross dissolve which is an effect which allows you to fade/dissolve into another clip which I found useful when editing the narrative into the performance clips so that there is continuity.
I used the effects panel to edit the colour of the clips because the lighting is off in a few of them. I can use this effect to make the shots look brighter and more vibrant to suit the genre better through bright colours and lots of vibrance allowing us to create the star image we want to portray which was a colourful, bright and confident person as well as meeting the genre conventions.
Changing the speed of a clip and reversing it
I can slow down the clip and speed them up which means I can make some parts slow motion or a lot quicker so that the clips fit with the beat better. I can also reverse the clips which makes the clips look quite fun because we can use one clip and then copy it and make it go the opposite way. I used this for the narrative in a few clips to make it more interesting and variety because the change of speed makes it different as well as fun like the conventions of the pop genre.
I used the razor tool to cut into specific clips at the times I needed to in order to make sure the lip syncing and timings are right. This is going to help me throughout the rest of the making of the music video because it is a necessary tool to use when cutting clips and editing to the beat. This helped us when putting the story of our narrative together because we could cut it at specific points leading up to the climax and then to make sure we had the new equilibrium in the right place.
