Media Project Dump – Spring 2011
This past Spring Semester, I took a class called Editing For the Media. Basically I learned a good bit about Final Cut Pro, which I barely had used up until this point. We completed for different exercises, all of them on an individual basis. The first project we were to construct a rudimentary movie trailer out of a bunch of clips and a musical track that was given to us….
For our second project, we were given about an hour of raw footage from the television show, Monk. It was our job to edit the scene down to what it would look like in the show.
Our third project was a sports news piece we were to put together using the given footage and voice overs.
For our final project we were directed to create another movie trailer like clip out of the entire movie we chose. I chose Mr. and Mrs. Smith. We were to choose a song to use as the soundtrack. I used Explosions in the Sky’s song Postcard From 1952. It’s off of their latest album Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. I had to edit the song down quite a bit to make it fit within the time frame needed for the project. Unfortunately, due to some video conversion issues, I had to export the video with a watermark. Apparently the Temple computer labs don’t have the full complete Final Cut Pro on their computers, otherwise that wouldn’t have happened
