No better way to demonstrate than by example!
This is where the magic really happens!
Editing allows us to alter space and time for your viewer.
It can transport the viewer- you control the mood, the anticipation and experience for your audience.
The tools are easily available with most editing programs- just know where they are and add your imagination using a few good rules of editing-- and have fun!
Editing Your Videos
This is what is shot- pretty straight forward-
This now tells a story-
It indicates to show how to up your production value.
The "film lead-in" sets up your audience to see a "film reel".
Changed the visual of the shot to mimick film-
1- alter the speed
3- film characteristics- scratches, grain, jitter, darkened borders, soft edging.
4- add music and mix with existing sound to transport your audience to a different time experiencing a "newsreel" of years gone by!
5-You may wish to add titling and narration to further add to the experience!
Most editing programs allow almost unlimited flexibility- all you need to add is imagination!
