- Shoot for continuity using montage to condense time and space
- Use speed to infer tension
- Use close ups to show reactions / expression of the person – many of you missed these essential narrative moments in the Prelim Task – don’t do it this time.
- Shoot to edit at least one eye line match – significant object/person
- There may be some repeated action to show the repetitive nature of the school day
- Edit in at least one match on action – again, many of you missed the detail and purpose of MOA in the Prelim.
- Use some interesting transitions – fade in, wipe, dissolve etc...to help show the passing of time
- I had a variety of multiple shots ranging from long to close up shots that I was able to use each creatively and successfully in my edit.
- I used multiple transition effects that made the transition from one shot to the other look more smooth and more seamless.
- My shots were well edited together with quick cuts to each shot emphasising the passage of time in a short space of shots as a montage should.
- One transition was implemented to early in the shot resulting in a rough change of shots that didn’t look too good together.
- The establishing shot although it did its job it could have been better if the shot was held for a bit longer to emphasise the effect.
- I could’ve included more sound effects to add to make the video more immersive with how Nic went throughout his day.
I have learnt through editing this montage how important everything is and how they all work together to create a good final product, camera, sound and editing all work together to create meaning and purpose in each shot creating a story that the audience can follow through all of these things combined together. When it comes to making my music video I will keep in mind how to do this so when it comes to shooting, editing and sound syncing I can create a story in my video.
