Experimentation with Premiere

Jan 22, 2017 - I conducted a interview at Cassis Bakery for 6 hour and 22 min, of a Tuxedo Cake by Uldison. The struggle I faced during this interview was not having a tripod to hold the camera in position. This made editing, later on more time consuming due to shakiness within the film.

Jan 23, 2017 - I completed 19 hours and 4 min worth of editing of a single picture and a full video.

Within the film I wanted to capture the movement of Uldison skillfulness with his tools and hand movement as he decorated the cake. The struggle I faced while editing the video was trying to used all of my clips while still have a short video. I realized not all of my clips were needed to bring this short film together. I also used some color correction with in Premiere to give it a light blue tint to give it that dreamy feeling and simple text to fit the image.

  1. I think this is a really good direction!

    I love your photography as well as your cinematography for this. And the blue tint was a smart choice to give a certain effect. Paired with the music, I think it creates an interesting video. Also, the video was pretty well put together, and the pacing was pretty solid. I didn't really feel that it lagged in any particular spot, and I didn't feel inclined to skip through the video (as I often do with videos at times). I actually watched it a few times.

    I think one of my only suggestions is to think about the type you overlay on top of your video clips. For instance, in the beginning the text looks nice when it's on the white cake, but some of it bleeds over to the background and it becomes less clear/readable.

    Also, I would watch out to make sure all your clips are filmed at the same aspect ratio, or are cropped to be the same width. Most of the clips are the same sizing, but towards the end there's a clip that's thinner than the rest.

    Overall I think it's really good, and I'm really excited to see more of your work!
