America's Pasttime

This was my first ever video editing project that I created using Adobe Premiere Pro software. We were given a few pieces of video and different pictures and we had to edit them and embed them into our videos. With these pictures, we had to learn how to do close ups on the picture itself and make you see the picture from a completely different angle. This being my first ever project through video editing, I learned the basics of editing video and this is what I want to do when I get older. Now having finished this project, it got my feet wet for the first time on how to properly edit videos. There will definitely be more to come.

Here is my finished project:
This is my second video editing project where I had to use multiple cameras at multiple different angles in order to create the masterpiece you see before you. The second lime around was a lot simpler because I'm now more aware and qualified to use and try and master Adobe Premiere Pro. Throughout class, we have learned how to embed different soundtracks and transitions between videos and pictures in order to make our videos look more professional and appealing to those who are watching. This type of work is what I want to do as a career in the sports world, so I feel I'm just at the tip of the iceberg when it comes to mastering video editing.

Here is my finish product:


This was one of the more difficult parts of the project because you basically have to come up with your entire project on this piece if paper, not knowing what the heck you want to even start off with. After not knowing what to put into my project at first, once I was able to use the cameras and see the footage that I shot, it became much clearer on what I wanted to put into this video and what order I wanted it in. Now having done this once, I can definitely say that I will continue to use storyboarding because it helped me organize this project. I'm a very visual person and seeing this as I broke down my video helped me out a lot. Not having to do the project off of the top of my head helped me out exponentially and I will be using this method for the rest of my projects.
