After watching this draft I am very happy with the outcome. I like the editing style we have chosen and feel that it represents the genre well for a second draft, I also think that the way in which we have been able to incorporate the narrative and performance has worked well, and our use of B-roll has given the video a very finished look. I can also see a wide range of shots which I’m a huge fan off. Mise en Scene is also something that I think we have coordinated really well in Draft. Inclusion of more narrative within drafts 3 and 4 will allows for more Mise On Scene to be included and for the video to provide a real feel for the genre.
Targets For Improvements
- Filters – Throughout the development of our narrative we have said we will use a filter, to create separation between the narrative and performance, this is something we haven’t been able to include within this first narrative draft and is therefore something we will be looking to use in the subsequent edits.
- Editing speed – although I feel the edit has progressed well within draft 2, one noticeable factor, is the editing speed. Currently the edit starts very quick, then slows and gathers speed at the end. To improve upon this I will be looking to make the speed consistently grow, with a more progressive opening and a constant speed within the middle of the video.
- Storyline Aspect – At the moment I feel like the story line isn’t prominent enough within the video. I feel like with the change up with the new filters and the speed of editing will help this come along and will therefore make the video make more sense.
