Join Diana Weynand for an in-depth discussion in this video Compounding thoughts into one primary story project, part of Effective Storytelling with Final Cut Pro X v10.0.9.
When you were developing story ideas from the Delicious Peace footage you…created several projects, each following a different thread or storyline, such as…coffee making, the importers who purchase the coffee, and so on.…And now it's time to weave those threads together, to compound them to create a…richer and more complex story.…But how do you weave and compound sections into one story when they live…in different projects?…Well, let's start with the Coffee project.…Just to review, this is the project that contains the sequence of clips that…demonstrate to us how the coffee is produced and enjoyed by the Ugandan…coffee growers.…
That tells us one story, but if you recall there is no one else speaking to…us about the process or telling us anything about the history, or the fact…that there are three religious groups that have gotten together to make this…all possible.…For that, we need to turn to additional information, and one of the projects that's…been created is a Narration project.…Here we went through and cleaned up the narration clips and put them in an order…
