Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating the first narrative cut decisions, part of Creative DSLR Video Techniques.
…So you should of watched this first cut in the last movie and seen the story…that I am zeroing in on that I pulled from that big mess of stuff we shot.…I just want to step through it here and talk about…kind of how i came to some of the decisions that I made.…I'm feeling my way through this.…I'm going really organically through this process.…You don't have to work this way and I…wouldn't work this way on just any type of project.…This is really how I like to work on these…documentary type of projects with a big shooting ratio.…I kind of letting Steven and the needs of the story just dictate it as I go.…
So that's why I was listening to the interviewer over and over I'm trying to…figure out what the content is and that's not how you work on every project.…So I don't want you to think that this kind of lost stumbling process…that I'm going through is what you would do on every type of project.…It, It works for me well on this,…but I would like to talk a little bit…about some of the decision making that I made.…
