- Now that we've got everything set up,…it's time to actually do the edit.…Now, editing multi-camera material…is very much something you have to get a feel for.…So, it's going to be important that you…really wrap your head around what's going on here,…and just simply put all the pieces together…in a way that actually tells a story.…Now, to do this, I'm going to edit this in real time.…You can decide to stop watching at any point…or skip to the end, but don't try to follow along…and do the edits exactly like I do.…
Rather, get familiar with the footage and…apply your own style.…Now, there's certain given things, like…when one talent's talking,…you might want to mostly be on that talent.…But sometimes there's a great reaction shot,…and you might want to cut away…to the person who's listening.…But it's really up to you…if you use the overhead angle,…or the chase camera angle to tell the story.…And do keep in mind that some of the edits we make…will be wrong, because that chase camera's moving along,…you might cut to it a little bit too early,…
You'll learn essential preproduction strategies to get the right gear and place it in the right position. You'll also learn techniques for syncing the visuals and audio captured from each camera. Rich and James offer advice for directors running shoots in the field, as well as strategies for crew members who are building sets and logging footage. Finally, in chapters 7 and 8, they share techniques for multicamera postproduction with Final Cut Pro X and Premiere Pro. In these chapters, you'll learn how to create multicam clips, apply color correction, color match angles, switch between angles, and refine and master your edit. By the end of the course, you'll have a thorough start-to-finish understanding of the multicamera production process.
