Join Diana Weynand for an in-depth discussion in this video Sculpting the story within the timeline, part of Effective Storytelling with Final Cut Pro X v10.0.9.
I once had the opportunity to visit Michelangelo's famous sculpture of David…in Florence, Italy.…It was amazing.…But the most amazing thing was to realize that Michelangelo started out with a…giant slab of marble.…He had to find David inside the marble slab.…That's where you may be with your story, being Michelangelo and finding…your David.…If so, put on your tool belt and let's start chiseling.…Let's start in the Project Library by opening the Narration project.…
The clips in this project have already been placed in an order that has a…story shape;…a beginning, middle, and end.…(Audio Playing) Narrator: In the foothills of Africa's fourth…largest mountain, a group of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim coffee farmers affirmatively decided…to marry peaceful inner-relationships, with economic development.…Diana Weynand: And it continues!…Now, the idea is to view this project over and over again, remember our repeated…screenings, and see if there are any clips that don't fit.…
Are there clips that are redundant?…
