- Now that I've made my decision to use all the wide shots,…let's go ahead and start assembling…kind of the first rough of our rough cut.…Step into 03-02 Assembly,…and you'll see that I've basically placed in…the entire wide shot between Joseph and Mr. Dalton.…I'm going to use this as my basis…for cutting together my scene.…There's an old saying that when you're directing…and there's a problem,…always run for the wide shot or run for the cover shot,…so I always like to start with a cover shot.…
- How's the coffee?…- It's cold.…- Did you finish it?…- No.…- Now, I'm going to stop it at this point…because I can tell already that,…yes this has a really hollow feel,…but from a viewer's point of view,…I want to meet these people,…I want to know who they are,…I have to see their faces.…So, even though I like this shot,…it doesn't establish the characters for me.…It doesn't let me see their faces…and see what the problems are.…
So, I think I'm going to take a look…at Mr. Dalton coming in and swapping that out…and also seeing Joseph from that long…
Note: This course was updated to reflect the changes to Final Cut Pro X v. 10.1.x. Although the course was not re-recorded from scratch, we updated each of the movies by adding text overlays to guide you to existing changes. We also updated the exercise files to work with the most current version of the software. Please watch the "Understanding this update and using the exercise files" movie to learn exactly what to expect from this updated course. Working with an earlier version of Final Cut Pro X? Watch Narrative Scene Editing with Final Cut Pro X 10.0.9.
