Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Creating a PSA Commercial.
- In order to help bring the lesson to life, I've put together a collection of exercise files. Now with a real world commercial it would be difficult to give you all of the footage that was acquired. That's because we shot for two days and you just don't wanna download that much footage. But I have pulled a few selects that'll help illustrate some of the challenges that we faced and things that we have to fix during post production. As such, you'll find a smaller subset of material that you could play with. Now, in some cases, I'm down sampling this footage to make it easier to get more clips to play with, but this will still give you a pretty good idea of what it's like to come back from the field with a lot of different stuff and what you do about it.
Now, remember, these are just hands on files that you could use for purposes of learning. My client was very generous. He's allowing us to use this material for educational purposes only. Please don't reuse this footage in any other projects and please don't post anything online. This is strictly so that you can get some hands on practice and learn more about what it takes to make a commercial.
