Transcript of Editing Prelim
This was the first stage of editing. We took all of our footage and cut each shot to the correct timing. We used the cutting tool to trim the videos. we also put in some markers to time the video correctly. To help us achieve the same look as the clip we were recreating we kept the clip on hand so we could constantly refer to it.
We then began to try out the different shots to see which ones worked best, this helped us to find the best shots.We worked on the speed and duration of the clips so that the visuals matched the audio of the clip (which we choice to keep from the original).
Once we had finished the timing of the clip we went into colour correcting. The original clip has a dark cold blue tint to it so we wanted to see if we could recreate this…
We used the ‘Colour Balance’ effect to edit the shots. To achieve this blue tint we upped the blue mid-tones, highlights etc. I think this is very effectively as it creates a more horror like atmosphere. We also added a fade to black at the end of the clip to mimic the ending of the original.
To insure all the colour correcting was the same we copied and pasted the effect.Overall editing went very well and although we differed out clip from the original we sill feel it is just as effective.
