TitlesTo inform the audience, titles must be addedin our documentary on certain shots (mainlyinterviews) like such. Names on an interviewis a typical key convention in documentaries. To be able to include titles the following stages are needed to be done on ‘Abobe Premiere Pro’: Title, New Title, Default Still,.
ColourAdjustmentUsing ‘Video Effects’ on the editing software allows us to adjust the brightness/contrast etc of different shots. Therefore ifwe want our shot to include high key lighting we will then make the brightness higher. Due to the documentary being aboutriots, we thought the dark, dismal weather fits in perfectly. Therefore the lighting in our shots will not include high keylighting, as natural/low key lighting creates a sense of realism like documentaries are supposed to.
ColourAdjustment I have used the video effects to brighten up this shot slightly, as it was too dark.
PositioningUsing the ‘Potion’ tool,allows me to move theshot frame in any position.In this shot the camera isslightly slanted so I usedthe ‘position’ tool to moveit so it looks straight.The ‘scale’ tool allows youto zoom in or out of theshot depending on howclose or far away youwant the positioning tobe. In this shot, there is ablack rim around thewindow. Using the ‘scale’tool, I zoomed in slightlyto make the black rimlook less visible.
ImportingImporting music and footage iseasy when using Adobepremier Pro. All the importedfiles are usually in a box in thetop left side of the screen, weare then able to drag and dropthe footage/music and edit itthe way we want to.
