This week I continued working on my film and edited mostly. Editing is not fun and I do not enjoy doing it. My favorite part of this project is piecing together pictures and other content and seeing what fits best. It is satisfying laying out new material and working fresh on it after editing the same material for so long. Editing is tiring and much more technical than I expected. I talked to some people about my film and many have encouraged me to consider using video clips from other sources in my film. I’ve thought about this a lot this week and I decided I would save the copy I am working on with just pictures and try it out. I wonder if it will make it more engaging. I am planning on doing this next week and showing a clip to two people, one being my mentor and another being a friend of mine. Ultimately, though, if finding and editing video clips takes a long time I may not do it just for time sake.
I’m not ready to show this film to everyone yet so here is a map that will be featured for the time being:
Also, here is a video that was helpful:
