Final Cut-Experiment Project

The “experiment” project was designed to familiarize us with Final Cut. The footage of this project was shoot by the 9 of us in class, with each one a 15 minutes footage. We were asked to put the footage together in one video and do some experimental editing.

The theme for all of us was “hair”, so we decided to cream while shaking our hair, brush our hair, make up our hair… and I make Kelly, CeeCee and Gala to donate their hair to me so that Pheobe can braid their hair together into one braid!

Look at it, isn’t it genius?

I started with the title/begging of the video. Unfortunately it didn’t go well during the critique, but over all it added a sense of completion.

The next scene is the juxtapose of two footages where everyone is randomly making their hair. I changed the opacity of each footage to 35%, and added “halftone” as effect. Here is how it looks like in the video:

The next sequence is Christine making her hair. I used vignette mask, halttone and graphic as effects.

It follows my footage of Phoebe braiding three people’s hair. The effect I used is water pane.

Here comes my favorite: “I claim it for Spain!” I used flashing and keyer as effects. The effects for the audio include shortwave radio and vintage radio. The sound goes perfectly with the flashing lights.

I also liked the transaction called mosaic.

Last but not least, I wanted to take full advantage of the effects, and since this is just a practice, nothing’s wrong if I go tacky. Here it is, the kaleidoscope.

I also thanked my audience.
