So I have majority of the footage, I have the software to put it together now all I have to do is actually put it together! Sounds so simple because as a 4th year student this should come completely natural to me but I hit a wall yesterday. I sat at my laptop with Adobe Premiere Pro open all day and could not figure out how I wanted the documentary to flow. I went through all of the footage I have and I re-arranged it in different ways and still, it wasn’t making sense. I have had a lot of deadlines this week and I have some more next week so my brain is just fried. Well, that is until I sat down with my supervisor Ian today.
During our meeting before the Easter break, myself and Ian spoke about what would be the best way to tell all 3 of the stories whether it be interlinking or separating each person into their own chapter. We came up with a storyline/story-arc in which I can now work from over the Easter holidays and prep for the screening where hopefully I’ll get some good feedback and be able to learn from the possible changes suggested.
