New course - new orientation ... why I'm here?
I'm here, because I won't trouble you with videos like this in future;-)
To watch the video: << dino1992 >>
yes, I know: no vertical -> HORIZONTAL
"Create a short montage video sequence using still images based on a single colour. Try and make the exported video 15 seconds exactly."
I love the Caribbean and therefore it was easy to select my favorite color: turquoise, as the Caribbean sea.
Step 2: Create the Premiere Pro project and import the files.
To visualize 15 sec. I imported an image to video track 1 and changed duration to 15 sec. Then I worked on video track 2 and at last I deleted video track 1.
Step 3: Tell your story.
(My pictures inspired me to tell the story of a creative person. "It is Friday afternoon and you are tired after a stressful week. But you know: your friend is waiting for you and you'll have a wonderful weekend at the beach.")
Rearrange the images.
Step 4: Search for the background music on evermusic.de.
There I've found a happy Reggae-Techno mixture called "come follow me".
Step 5: Finalize your video using appropriate effects.
I tried out some effects and decided to use "Split". Think it fits to the music.
Step 6: Export the media and upload it to your Vimeo channel.
... and here it is:-)
This assignment makes fun and it's perfect for my students.
Working in class: Because of limited time I'll prepare some folders with images (folder "blue", "red", "pink", "green" and one folder "music").
"Create video montage sequence based on found video content that follows a thee of your choice. 20 seconds exactly."
Another assignment which was a challenge to me because of "theme of my choice". First I wanted to use own footage but the quality of my videos didn't satisfy me. So I used some videos from pexels.com and pixabay.com again.
I wanted to do something different and chose a video with the blue figure which is turning to the viewer. Next I searched for some videos with "strong" pictures and - most of us like it - the firework. Do you know Gustav Klimt's "The Kiss" - I searched for a video which could represent "The Kiss" - and now I had the title of my work: LOVE.
20 sec isn't that long and so I decided to use only these 4 videos.
The blue figure is the base which is in the background of the whole video. I always want to tell a story and so I'll tried to visualize the feeling of the two beloved.
I get more and more familiar with Adobe Premiere. I experimented with some effects, I cut the videos and rearranged the frames.
Last of all I imported the sound (I've downloaded some free music and found the appropriate music in my archive) and adjusted it to the video.
This is another great assignment and I'll see, what my students will do with the same footage.
Create a video sequence utilising the shot reverse shot technique (and obeying the 180 degree line rule) to present a knock knock joke. 30 seconds max.
First I have to tell you, that I didn't know "knock knock jokes" yet. But - as an additional challenge I wanted to do the "expert assignment" with a knock knock joke.
This assignment wasn't easy (lot to do -> see the steps below) and it's a good idea to ask for a knock knock joke OR an interview. (But did anyone do an interview?)
My assignment and what's to do in class:
Step 1: Ask for help (in class I'll prefer teams of two for camera, sound, acting).
Step 2: Google one or two knock know jokes (by the way, I found three which I really liked). Each team member has to create a video.
Step 3: Check out your video equipment (camera, spotlight, tripod). If you have no video camera, check your smartphone).
Step 4: Think about the scenery and start working on your storyboard.
Thanks for the storyboard template:-)
Step 5: Make your video clips: film -> check -> film -> check -> film it again. (Don't forget: you are a team member and help each other.)
Step 6: Start cutting (Premiere Pro): New project -> import clips.
Step 7: Cut your video (don't forget your storyboard).
For my video I used an effect for the first cut. (Easy to do in Premiere Pro:-)
Step 8: Test and retest you clip. Ask your team for their opinion.
Step 9: Export your video and upload it to Vimeo or You Tube.
Here is my work (password: dino92)
For this assignment I decided to use the provided footage because I'm late AND I wanted to see how it is working with unfamiliar stuff.
Step 1: I download the footage -> Good to know, how to download files from your Creative Cloud.
Step 2: Start Adobe Premiere and import all files. Watched all clips and rename them (to get a better overlook).
Step 3: Think about your story - work with a storyboard.
