Lynda tutorials give us the opportunity to learn about learning.
On Tuesday, Croom talked to us about the planning stage that goes behind any video project. After watching videos he has made, we were able to watch the Lynda tutorials in a new light and see the background thoughts behind the video. We also found out that our video project is going to be a branded story about one of our classmates. This branded story will require planning and strategy, along with video, audio and B-roll.
This video project will require us to plan strategically the way we want to construct our video. Using the freedom of any interview questions we want, we will make a branded story. I'm excited to get to know whomever I'm interviewing, but I'm even more excited to see if myself putting together an edited video using Premiere Pro!
I have never constructed my own video project, so I'm very interested to see how it will go. After learning about the shortcuts for Premiere Pro (I, O & J, K, L), I feel like I will be able to catch on to the editing process pretty quickly. I guess what I'm most concerned about is making sure I have enough video and B-roll to create a 2.5 minute video that captures my partner in the best way possible. I have a Canon DSLR camera already, though, so I'm excited to use it for a video project.
Wish me luck!
