Here it is! The final version of my Adobe Premiere project and also the final project of the semester. Is it weird that i’m kind of sad that this class almost over?
For my final version I made A LOT of changes. First, I used the feedback from my classmates and made my transitions smoother. I decided to use a cross dissolve so that the color fades from red to black in the background rather than flash.
Second, I cropped down a lot on the video. When I started my video was almost 4 minutes and I didn’t want to lose points because it was too long so I cut out a lot of the questions I didn’t think were useful… unfortunately it took a bit of the personality out of the video when I did but it had to be done.
Third, I changed up the opening scene a bit and added in some of the B roll footage that I had from the original interview video. I took some of the personality out so I tried to find a way to insert it back in other places of the video.
Lastly, I added in the background music. I have been doing my homework throughout the semester and learned the importance of the creative commons license and copyrighted materials. Instead of trying to find free-to-use music instrumentals, I asked my roommate to send me over one of his tracks that he produced. After I finalized the transitions and had all of the shots set to the order I wanted them in, I laid down the music track. After I did this I had to go back and tweak it a bit to make everything on point with the beat and transitions. After this I used the razor tool to cut the audio track in the transition spots and turned the gain down so my voice wasn’t competing with the music.
I really enjoyed doing this project. From Start to finish. Doing it made me realize how much I really miss editing. I’ll be back Premiere 🙂
