The idea for week-2 of this course was to add music and/or audio to the mini movie. And the prompt was to create a video portrait film of someone or a place. Since I had planned to meet my brother at the Christmas market, I decided to film our day there. When editing the clips together I found that the audio of each scene wasn’t very interesting, so I went for the music option only.
As I mentioned in my week-1 post, I’m doing all the filming & editing on my phone and I realized this week that when using the app it gets a bit tricky to make image + sound flow nicely. When you edit using the computer, the software gives you the opportunity to add beat markers in your timeline, so you can then cut the scenes according to the beat of the music. Oh well, I ended up editing everything together the best I could, it’s not perfect… but I think it’s good enough! 🙂
Let me know if there’s a Xmas market in your city. Is it similar to the one featured in this video?
