Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Trimming interview shots, part of Creating a Mini Documentary with Premiere Elements.
One thing I like to do in the editing process is work with my interview on…the timeline.…When I first put these interview clips down, I did it very quick and dirty.…I wasn't paying a whole lot attention to the details, just the big picture.…But now that I have a few selected pieces on the timeline, I've watched it…through a few times, and I've seen where the editorial opportunities are--…in particular, this shot that's now in third position following my guideline.…I think this should be the very first interview bite.…
Listen to how it starts.…(Female speaker:--favorite thing in the world is actually being a participant in this incredibly rare medium.)…I think that's going to work nicely and she goes on to talk about being a woman…in the business and it's very nice.…So, I am going to slide this up to the front.…I think I may have to make some room first.…So, it's going to slide a little out-of- the-way, just this one to the front of…the stack, and now I actually have my beginning.…
At the end of this bite...…
