      Using Soundbites & Narration to help make Edit Dec

      November 7, 2016, 1:36 pm
      When you make an edit, it's an important decision. Each edit should advance your story. So when do you make an edit? There are many reasons. Your story should have a rhythm, like a good song has a good beat. How do you find your rhythm? Here's an idea. Follow the rhythm of the narration and the soundbites.

      It takes time to figure out how to use Music in Vi

      June 17, 2015, 4:08 pm
      I love using music. I use music whenever I can. I use it improperly. I abuse the use of music. I use the wrong type of music. I force music into a edit just because. You should be doing this too. You read that right. Force it, use the wrong music, use it as a bad. Use music as much as you can. It takes time to figure out how to really make music work for a story. Pay attention to how you hear it in film, commercials, documentaries and television shows. When an edit adds music it ...

      Adding frames of silence in video editing adds more than just silence - say what? By adding a few frames of silence you can enhance a story. There is at least 10 frames of silence between the narration and any soundbite in this story

      Have you edited a story that gets people talking? Whether it impacts lives, wins awards, or people just watch it over and over to learn. This entry is about that type of story. If I were to rank edits I did over the past 20 years, this is in the top five.

      Using Midmotion in video editing to your advantage

      Marking an In on your clip midmotion will practically help every edit you ever make. Editing midmotion, starting the edit after an action has started, hides (which is what editing is supposed to do) a lot.

      The Why of My Simple Motion Effects in Video Edit

      March 6, 2015, 6:33 pm
      A motion effect changes the size, shape, opacity, duration, position of your video, image, text or graphic in your projects. Motions effects are easy. I'm not going to explain the how of motion effects. I'm going to explain the why.

      In The Style Of Jump Editing

      February 24, 2015, 1:52 pm
      This is a style that you could use no matter what type of storyteller you are. I call this jump editing. Jump cuts are intentional. There are some rules to jump editing (or guidelines). Are you ever given a story that just screams jump cuts?

      A motion effect changes the size, shape, opacity, duration, position of your video, image, text or graphic in your projects. Motions effects are relatively easy in most Non-Linear Editors.  I’m not going to discuss the how of motion effects. I’m going to focus on why I did certain motion effects in this story.
