I’m very happy with some of the shots but however I still have a lot to do, for example i have to re film the shot by the tomb stone because you can see the tripod in shot. i also need to shorten it down as it is far too long.
Audience feedback for the first edit
To do list
- Try and establish of the characters better and make it a bit clearer, this could be done by adding date and location subtitles.
- Need to shorten some clips to make the chase scene run smoother, for example at 2:03 and 2:08.
- Stabilisation of some shots are definitely needed.
Need to add sounds for the cuts to the statues, otherwise just looks wrong. I also really need to crop some of the shots so they are centre frame and stabilise most of my shots. furthermore music needs changing it doesn’t work, I need to create a better soundscape. A good thing I’ve dome though is I’ve found a good order for everything and have edited well just needs some trimming here and there.
In this edit i added the shot of the picture on the phone to help establish the relationship between the 2 characters as thats what the audience wanted, I’ve also started to try and make the film run smoother which i still need to work on.
In this edit i finally changed the music to something that works better for a thriller from a musician called David Fesilyan. I also started cropping all the shots so they are centre frame. I have also been trimming/cutting a lot of shots so the film runs smoother and flows, for example the running up the hill. However I still have things i need to do…
To do list:
add title at the end
put music in better timed positions
make sure all shots are centre frame
