them up, add a voice over to link the sequence together, take out the ending and use ascene from the interview to end the video in a more personal and effective way, include
some of GH’s photos which were not taken on the shoots in the video to show the target
audience all her work and alter the colour correction to give it a more softer tone.
The positive feedback which I got was “It included
and made me want to do
that”, “Loved the transitions between each scene and image”, “Captured all the differentelements of the photographers work load in one short video”, “The music fits perfe
the sequence giving it a smooth but edgy tone”, “Each clip
flows smoothly and fits perfectwith the rest of the sequence
All this feedback is positive and advises me on how to improve my video to make it evenbetter.The music which I used is an instrumental piece from the band Coldplay. This is not themusic which my client will use because of copyright issues. Originally, I had a musicproducer produce me a piece of instrumental music but unfortunately we came across someissues while editing where the music got lost. How we resolved this problem was usingsome existing music, temporally while ST (music producer) creates a new piece. Thesoundtrack which I have used is for this project only.The aspects of the promotional video I most like are the transitions I used to cut on each clipand photograph. The reason for this is because they introduce the next clip or photographwith a dissolve which gives the transition a smooth and elegant effect. I also liked myintroduction with the on location scene from the woods. Where I start zoomed in at the sunpeering through the trees and then gradually zoom out to a mid shot of my client taking aphotograph through the glass. This introduces the video with an elegant start and sets thetheme. I also like the interview where Harrod talks about her work and her feedback whichshe got from a well-known photographer. I found it inspirational what she said as itinfluenced me as a person and motivated me to continue with my work.The aspects which I wish I could improve on and do differently next time would be to use atripod on some of the locations. The reason for this is because with some of my footage it isa bit shaky and could have been easily dealt with if I used a tripod. I do not regret using theFig Rig as it made handling the camera much easier.I would also plan my schedule differently so I would have more time near to my deadline totweak bits if needed and to give me more time to finish of paper work.Throughout this project I have learnt new skills and techniques not only in film but also inphotography. I learnt that all photographers are different and work in different ways anduse different techniques on how to produce their work. I learnt how to film in a moreprofessional and sufficient manner to produce a well filmed and edited show reel for myclient.
