Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding cutaways to enhance the DSLR project, part of Creative DSLR Video Techniques.
…Working with the B-roll that I had.…I've now gone through each section, and put in…cutaways to cover the jump cuts that I've made.…I did it a section at a time, because each one of those sections is kind…of like a little story in itself, and so it was easier to work that way.…I want you to take a look at the, thing that I mentioned in…the last video, the transition between the end of the car chase, and the description.…His mother or the introduction of his mother.…Without the cutaway,…it was a kind of abrupt jarring thing,…but just with simple addition of some still images,…>> This is just what all families do.…
>> Bob, she was from Jersey City, New Jersey.…>> We're now smoothed through that change, so once…you start getting this extra media into your project.…Things really start coming together, and you'll find that the…pacing of your edits makes a lot more sense.…Or you might find that you need to alter the pacing here and there.…So I had this great shot of…Steven's mother hand-gliding, or paragliding, or something.…
