Editing 101 – a car chase

15 Feb

his tutorial is all done in FCPX 10.0.3 (Trial) on MacOS LION 10.7.3

IMPORTANT READ THE REST AFTER U WATCH THE VIDEO … U WILL LEARN MORE DOING THAT!
GO TO VIMEO AND WATCH IT IN 720p HD

here some of basics:

- work on the sound even for the 1st rough edit

- continuity is essential

- get the best actors performance

- talk with & understand/ know the directors needs

- show your edit to a fellow editor
(or any other person who comes along) 4 eyes can see more than 2

- some nice b-roll cut-aways can help to create some tension

- read your titels careful (twice or more) so you don’t miss any typos
(yes i put in one just to show u how easy these can be missed)

- re-shoot if needed

- spend some time for the Color-Grade & Sound-mix …
even it might just be a lil difference in the end it counts

- get a BMW next time

- hold the button down 10 seconds

now go and edit stuff!
THANKS!
