Apologies for the lack of posts recently. I have been mostly working on the edit of The Cockleshell Raid 2012 Promotional film. my steps have been:
Stage one. Shot, logged footage and transcribed interview footage and created rough cut of The Historic Dockyard: The History
With the help of Chloe, I was able to concentrate on camera work and direct the piece more successfully, only issue I would flag up is whilst on the sub we had no strong notes to go by which we had planned to do whilst Chloe was answering the questions. This meant the footage captured on the day could have been more abundant and stronger.
Stage two. Shot, logged footage and transcribed interview footage and created rough cut of Brighton Beach: Kayaking
This time was just me at the beach so I was unable to give full attention to the contributor, Craig and less able to control the camera this meant the footage (due to the light increasing as i started the shoot at sunrise) was slightly over exposed but I was abled to amend it later in the shoot.
Stage three. Shot, logged footage and transcribed interview footage and created rough cut of St. Martha's Hill: Training
Having put these three sequences together and a 'cut down' I was able to give Simon and Helen an overview of our footage. In this feedback we noted that archive is needed, and Chloe has taken up the job of finding strong and suitable cutaways to elevate and push the story.
In editing terms I need to combine all three sequences together linking up all the footage coherently:
- Setting up what it is we are going to talk about
- Mix interview footage with strong imagery to intercut and play off eachother
- Create a commentary that will act as an introduction, a summary and a tool in which we can 'corner turn'
