The first day of video editing is always a little shaky, but this one seemed a little more so than usual. If you were unable to load your video and photos onto your computer, you need to take the time to get that done before class on Thursday. Which means that you have two windows tomorrow.
What I was hoping for today was that we would all have the basics of our videos roughed out: the video clips edited more or less the way you want them (with fine adjustments still to come) in the order that you want them. We’ll be adding B-roll (still photos and video), titles and the like later on.
If you think you need to do more shooting, please make sure you do it before class on Thursdays. And if you absolutely cannot get your videos and photos transferred to your Mac, get in touch with me as soon as possible. I won’t be on campus on Wednesday (all day) or Thursday morning, but maybe I can talk you through it.
Video is hard, and there is no substitute for putting in the time to get it right.
