Our recent webinar – Editing as Story-telling – was so popular that we decided to continue it with a second look at the craft of editing. While understanding and using editing technology is critical in any project, if you don’t know how to tell a story, no one is going to watch.
In this webinar, host Larry Jordan continues sharing his thoughts on how to enhance a story using editing. Specifically, he looks at the influence timing has on story-telling.
- How changing the shot order changes the audience’s perception of the story
- When to cut between wide shots, close-ups and cut-aways
- How to determine when to cut from a talking head to B-roll
- When to cut from the person talking to a reaction shot
- When to start a story at the beginning or the middle or the end
Watch over Larry’s shoulder as he edits a series of dramatic and interview scenes to illustrate his point. If you are a new editor, this is a good way to learn basic editing techniques. And if you are an experienced editor, you can use this to brush up your own skills.
This session looks at the craft of editing. As such, no specific software experience is required. These techniques apply to any video editing software on any platform.
