My wife and I visited Harley Farms goat dairy this weekend to check out all the cute kids that have been born this Spring. I decided to have a go at making a short film, since I've been itching to try out all the video features of my recently acquired Nikon D750. This is only my second time with a video editor, so I realize it might not be perfect. I think the hardest thing was picking the right soundtrack. I was originally going to pick up a track from Triple Scoop Music, but got sidetracked. I started out fiddling with Andrew Bird's "Fitz and the Dizzyspells", never intending to use it for the finished product. But before I knew it, I had made a dozen cuts that precisely matched that song, so I decided to go ahead and finish it, rather than have to reimagine the pacing of the whole thing.
Let me know your impressions after the jump, and please subscribe at right if you want to know of my next post!
I used Adobe Premiere Elements 13... so much better than iMovie (which I used for my first video, and was crap). I have access to Final Cut but decided to start with baby steps. I think for my level of experience Premiere Elements is great. It's actually remarkably sophisticated precision editor that was also very easy to learn.
