Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Reframing shots, part of Creating a Short Film: 08 Editing.
So here we're gunna kind of continue the discussion about…focal point from the last tutorial.…In this movie we're going to look at…reframing shots. I did this a lot in the assurance.…When I'm in post-production I often find…that I can make things better if I just…can tweak the framing a little bit,…and for the assurance we shot it in 4k…and had a 10-80 export, which means that our…footage was four times larger than it needed to be.…That gave us a lot of room to push into sections of clips…or to reframe things. This also became important…because when we shot the film initially,…I wanted a standard wide-screen aspect ratio.…
But it wasn't until post-production that I…fell in love with the 2, 3, 5 aspect ratio…and wanted to use that. But those black bars…often covered up important elements in the shot.…So, lemme show you some of the ways that I reframe…shots in the edit, and hopefully this will help you to…think more creatively when your footage size…is larger than your export size.…In this first example I have this shot of Cordea…
