Join Eduardo Angel for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing, part of Video for Photographers: 1 Filmmaking Essentials.
- As photographers, editing is the process to…download our images into Lightroom or Photoshop…or any other software application,…and tweak some technical settings…like exposure, contrast, or cropping…or something else, and then export them…for client delivery.…Video editing is similar.…But please note that it will take…more steps and a lot more time.…Some people say that a story happens three times.…What's on the script, what happens during production,…and what happens in the editing room.…
And I believe that's true.…In the editing room, all the elements come together,…the footage, the sound, the music, the color,…transitions if we need them, all of them come together…to make a more compelling story.…And a great editor will help us with some…of the technical challenges that we might have.…But they will also understand our concept…for the story, and help us add some missing elements…that we might not have, and remove the ones…that are distracting the viewer from the story.…
On short projects, I like to do the editing myself.…
In this course, Emmy-winning filmmaker Eduardo Angel helps bridge the gap between photography and film—between still pictures and moving images—by showing what it takes to transition to video. The course covers the most essential video production techniques, from framing and lighting for continuous shots to directing the viewer's attention and incorporating camera movement and sound—Eduardo even provides a brief overview of his post-production workflow. By following along with Eduardo and his team, you'll understand why these concepts are so important and start applying them to your video and hybrid projects right away.
Look for the follow-up course, Video for Photographers 02: Filmmaking On Location, where Eduardo shows how these lessons apply to a real-world shoot. Coming soon to the lynda.com library!
