So much of my most recent video came easy to me, and I feel like I’m finally getting it. I was able to use J and L cuts in order to transition in and out of the interviews. I incorporated B-roll effectively. But most importantly, I told a story with my interviews. Each one transitioned into the next and played off the prior information.
Of course, the video wasn’t without fault. My B-roll was far too long in parts, and the audio was too low in the mix. I’m not sure if I should have scrapped the portions of Mr. Cihlar speaking to the class since he wasn’t mic-ed, but, if nothing else, I should have cut them shorter.
Regardless, I’m happy with my progress, and I feel somewhat ready to take the next challenges. My group led most of the filming, so I still have to work on my camera skills, but at least the editing is feeling easier.
