Today I’m releasing my very first video creation (besides a couple screen capture editing sessions). I had originally planned on putting together a full mini feature of around 3-5mins give or take in length. However I lost my first half-finished draft due to not saving (don’t ask). And I gotta say that learning to edit video from a standing start is a fiddly and slow process. As such I decided to break it up and edit together short “teaser” sequences. That way I can play with a couple techniques in a short clip, get some practice in on something that I can work on for a couple hours and at the end have something to show for it. Also it probably doesn’t hurt, building up to the full release with a series of short trailers.
On the editing side I used Adobe Premier Pro to put the whole thing together and Twixtor pro for the slo mo stuff. The intro I put together very quickly with a site called Intro Maker, this lets you input a logo and choose from a variety of different effects. The system then processes your order and emails you out the finished video within a half hour. Pretty neat! The only other program I had to use was something to convert the .mov file that the intro site created into something that Premier on my windows machine could read. For this I google gave me a program called Prism video file converter.
Anyway on to the clip, please throw a like at the vid if you enojoy that little snip and want to see more. I’m brand new over on youtube so I can do with all the help getting the ball rolling that I can get. Anyway thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the clip:
