IntroductionThis document shall explain the process of production through editing techniques and choices. I have had multiple attempts so far in order to create a music video I am satisfied with.Sequence Markers are one technique that aided my editing process, and I will explain their use.As well as markers, the orientation of the video clips needs to be analysed because despite them being synced, they still need to be in a visually appealing order to make the video more entertaining for the viewer.Enjoy!
Construction FolderThis folder highlights the variety of files needed for construction and the amount of attempts created in order to produce a sequence that I am happy with. One 15 second sequence may work in one file so once it does I can repeat it in the next file alongside another good sequence. Through multiple rough cuts I will be able to from the perfect construction of performance shots for my music video.
First Rough CutThe first rough cut was a good test of sync skills, as multiple shots were slightly out of sync but there was some good orientation. Also this taught to keep my video lines separate even after construction as if something needs editing it will be difficult to do so when video is stacked. Lastly, I added an introductory scene in which I will be able to display titles. This worked well.
MarkersThis image displays the finished cut process, I can now simply select any orientation of clips easily.The markers used, allowed me to mark the song on every 4th beat, enabling a better sync process. Manuel cuts will be made to suit the footage but overall this sped up the editing process.
Second Rough CutAfter receiving feedback from our first rough cut, we learned we needed to shorten the length of our shots. To do so we added cuts between the sequence markers we set enabling faster paced footage.
Third Rough CutOnce we received feedback on our second rough cut, we learned we needed more shots of the vocalist as conventionally he is the lead and therefore needs the most screen time. We also attempted to cut according to just the sequence markers to test the pace of that form of edit.
Fourth Rough CutLastly, the feedback given to our third rough cut showed us that the pace was still slow, however the orientation was better. Therefore we implimented more cuts to add to the pace of the footage, which meant we could add more shot variety, giving the other band members more screen time whilst keeping the vocalist seen for the majority of the song.
ConclusionTo conclude, I have found that constructing multiple edits allows you to learn about orientation of footage and allows you to plan ahead whilst forming new ideas about the production.Using markers speeds up production whilst helping you create multiple files with new structures at the same time.Be able to create multiple cuts, allows you to generate more feedback, thus leading to a greater final construction piece.
