Create video montage sequence based on found video content that follows a theme of your choice. Like assignment 1 this project should show an escalation of intensity. This escalation can be through shot type, shot length, subject matter, movement, sound or some combination of these elements. 20 seconds exactly. MP4 only.
This assignment was easy for me to edit. It took me less than 10 minutes to create the video. My biggest challenge was exporting the video! I spent almost an hour trying to export the video in HD. I have used Adobe Premiere Pro off and on for five years now but I could not remember how to export in HD. I finally watched a quick YouTube video about how to export and I figured it out in one minute. This was a reminder that when you come to a stumbling block, reach out and find help. It's good to troubleshoot but for the sake of saving my own time, I could have searched for a tutorial a lot sooner. I am taking this course to refresh my skills in Premiere and I am getting a lot of time to do that.
Expert assignment: Create a video sequence utilising the shot reverse shot technique (and obeying the 180 degree line rule) to present a knock knock joke. Use your own video content. Alternatively create an interview. 30 seconds maximum.
How did you come up with your joke/interview? Where did you find inspiration?
Was it easy to come up with different shots? Were there any unique shots you chose for a specific purpose?
Did “the rules” factor into your decisions on shot choices? How so?
Did the principles of shot composition and film grammar play into your shot choices? How so?
