Resources • BBC Training • http://www.bbctraining.com/onlineCourses.asp • Berkeley Multimedia Reporting and Convergence • http://journalism.berkeley.edu/multimedia/ • Cyndy Green’s VideoJournalism Blog • http://cyndygreen.wordpress.com/ • MultiMedia Shooter Blog • http://www.multimediashooter.com/wp/ • Angela Grant’s News Videographer Blog • http://newsvideographer.com/?page_id=2

  40. Shooting Exercise • No Staging • 2 different sequences each

  41. Review • http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=O7DDpIVLFKs

  42. Nonlinear Editing • Linear • Edit sequentially • Nonlinear, nondestructive • Edit shots in different orders, while underlying media is untouched (changes never affect the media)

  43. Editing • iMovie • Final Cut Pro/Express • Avid Express • Sony Vegas Movie Studio • Pinnacle Studio • Windows Movie Maker • Adobe Premiere

  44. Final Cut Express vs. Pro • $249 vs. $999 • No batch capture • Keyframe motions, not filters • Timecode will not be displayed • No three-way color corrector

  45. Editing • Assembling each shot together or trimming • Shot 1, Shot 2, Shot 3, Interview • Trimming Interview down • Show, don’t tell

  46. Editing Advice • Sequence • Editing pictures of the same object together • Cut-ins, cutaways, different angles • Never use the same shot twice • No frames of black • Cut on breath

  47. Editing Advice • Shots about :04-:05 with the exception of action • Let action complete • Each shot should flow logically • WS of room • MS of person’s body • CU of face • CU of paper

  48. Avoid Jump Cuts • Two similar shots edit together • MS of person and MS of same person at different angle create a jumping effect • Instead use CU or WS of person
