Diary (5-05-14) Sean McDonnell Edit

Today i have decided to work with final cut and I am editing an interview of Sean a student in year three.

This interview is different from the ones I have done before because this is a student who despite giving an interview, has work to show that is outstanding. So while I edit his interview, I have to put in cut aways of his work and also showing him as he works.

I like editing and this one is turning out to be very interesting. It is allowing me to use the lessons i have attained in film production by re arranging the clips on the time line in order to keep the story Interesting

The different clips I have had to work with are listed below which show how he emphasises his interview with different angle shots.

One problem I am having with most of the editing, is working with colour correction as most of the clips are either over lit or under lit and it’s becoming a learning curve for me knowing, if I have to deal with lighting another time to make sure its perfect so as to avoid complications during editing. However, I am using this failure to learn how to work with colour correction in final cut pro.
