Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating the assembly edit and making structural changes, part of Creating a Mini Documentary with Premiere Elements.
I'm looking at my assembly cut, and the next step to move forward is to just…watch it carefully and evaluate what we've done.…Then we'll make some structural changes.…These are big picture changes that change the very flow of the piece.…When I say evaluate your assembly, what I really mean is to try to see it with…what I call fresh eyes.…Do your best to take a step back and see your piece again for the first time…like a viewer might see it.…
This can be pretty challenging, but it's worth the effort.…I am going to watch my piece, and if you've been working with your own material,…you might want to pause for a second and just carefully watch yours.…(Female speaker: My favorite thing in the world is actually being a participant in this incredibly) …(rare medium, just being able to do it. As a woman, you look through the history of glass, we're not there.)…(Women aren't in that process)…Here are some things I noticed in my piece.…
First, I like what's going on visually.…The moves we made to identify opportunities, like a match cut and these shots…
