My third time out the gate with Final Cut Pro X.
Editing this footage took me much longer than I expected.
As I was editing I was reaching out to friends for feedback as well as referencing different video sources for inspiration and ideas. I quickly found myself frustrated with the lack of footage I had which I believe limited me on how much fun I could have in post processing.
After about a 2 week break an old friend of mine by the name of Rocko Seymour, videographer & director, asked me to work with him on a project. After only a month (honestly a few weeks) of practice you could imagine my shock.I asked him why, and to my dismay his reply was, “Its minimal yet effective some people edit in a hardcore way to make up for a lack of good shots and to keep the attention, but your work so far compliments all of the footage you had.”
In that instant I regained much of the confidence I had lost.
I realized that sometimes simplicity can be a great strength, and I was definitely going to use that to my advantage. I will not oversaturate my art in post processing to create “interesting” pieces. I will show you exactly what it is I see, in the cleanest and simplest form just as I do my imaging.
Gotta love visual arts.
