So, your shoot is done, and you've got some great footage. Now the trick is assembling your shots into a coherent message that will bring your client more customers. In this segment we talk about logging your footage, spot lengths and formats, adding voice-overs, choosing music, and adding sound effects. Creating the right blend of footage and graphics, along with a great sound mix will take all the hard work you've done and mold it into a great commercial.
It's that time again! This time, you have two a two-day head start, so use it wisely.
We had some pretty great submissions for week three of the challenge, plus some really interesting late entries to week 2. In fact, one entry for week 2 (Shoot a Chase Scene with a Non-Human) was too good to go unnoticed. Unfortunately it was a little late to put up on the home page. So here it is! Our first stop, motion entry into the Videomaker Weekly Challenge!
We're really excited to get as many submissions as we did for week one, especially considering the technical difficulties many experienced with the submission forums, which are hopefully now fixed. If you've been keeping an eye on the front page of Videomaker, you've likely seen some of the entries. Head over the forums to see the rest. With that said, here are the details for next week:
Week 2: Shoot a chase scene with a non-human participant
Sometimes I really hate technology. OK. I'm no technophobe, but lately, it seems that just as soon as I learn the new updates to some software, they go and makes changes on me and I either have to update again, or buy fresh and start over.OK. Maybe I don't HATE technology.. but wasn't it supposed to make our lives easier?
At Videomaker, we're constantly striving to encourge people to make video on a regular basis. The Videomaker Weekly Video Challenge is designed to inspire creativity and give people the opportunity to show off their chops!
How To videos and training videos are everywhere - from how to install a car engine to how to saddle a horse and how to build a model train. Many people think that since they know how to do something well enough, that they can use video sharing to teach these skills or techniques. Not necessarily.
