Following the tutorials and getting ideas on cutting together, I really appreciated Kev's comment that
Movement and style should reflect the content of the story...
With this in mind as it's a run and trip (hopefully not while running hehehe) the trip up was fast paced, as was the overall feel. Looking for fast paced music, and a catchy paced dialogue.
First rough cut
I took video with phone and iPad...put it all together on the iPad. I was able to share between my android phone and iPad through the use of Creative Cloud. I planned to use the iPad, as that is the device my students are most likely to use, and I wanted to see how intuitive it was, and was very happy with how simple it was, even for me.
Next part will be to flesh out the script and add a sound track.
Editing and putting it all together, the tutorials and live class really gave me some language, terms and skills to improve my video making abilities. I tried to use a range of shots when shooting the first cut, but was limited because of how I filmed. I did try to shoot some video while running.. fail, steady cam I’m not. I did however collect some still images and other pictures to add value to the story. Some stayed others , as they say, are on the cutting room floor. “Kill your darlings” and if I hadn’t the video would have been an hour long....lol. As it was I trimmed and removed clips and sections and 90 seconds was the shortest I could get to, and still have a story with light and shade, sound and quiet, pace and stillness. I also cropped the video to a square look, I did check to make sure nothing of importance was cropped out. I plan to post on Instagram as well as YouTube to explore different display forums.
Some great hints and tips to create more interesting looking movies.
