Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Making the most of cover shots, part of Creating a Mini Documentary with Premiere Elements.
Now that I've tweaked the structure and the interview, I want to take a pass…where I really focus on the cover shots and the B-roll.…Remember that earlier we identified some opportunities in the B-roll.…And essentially, what I want to do now is go through the whole piece, heightening…the use of each piece of B-roll so that we get the most out of it.…It doesn't matter if I previously identified it as an opportunity or not.…Everything needs to get a careful once-over at this point.…
Again, you may want to take the time to watch your piece in full and make some notes.…The first thing I noticed in my piece is I think there's an opportunity to take…some of these tool shots.…(Female speaker: A rare medium)…And move them back to this area so we hear her voice first over the tools.…(Female speaker: My favorite thing in the world is actually being a participant.)…I think that's going to be nice, so I'm going to take at least two, maybe all…three of these shots and slide them up toward the front of the bite.…
