Well, What can I say about this? As it turns out, I found I had a lot of fun with the challenges. Even though the anaglyph-a-gif was easier, kind of, I found the trailer mashup more enjoyable for myself. All in all, I thought I’ve done a pretty good job on it.
To really begin this, I wanna start of with my process. Before I can begin editing, I first had to find some trailers I felt worked very well. Luckily, I found the movies ‘Us’ and the upcoming ‘Gemini Man’, worked really well. Remember when I said the two movies had at least one similar characteristic in their plots? Well it’s the fact they involve clones/doppelgängers. So really, it opened an opportunity for them to be really cohesive (spoilers… THEY DID)! So next step, I imported them into premiere pro. Before I actually added anything to the timeline, I decided to go through each scene in another work window on premiere to go through each scene, and just drag and drop specific scene(s) into the timeline. For the most part, I dropped down scenes from the ‘Us’ trailer to be the base. Next, I unlinked the video and audio the trailers. That way, I can crop out the ‘Us’ scenes and place in ones from ‘Gemini Man’ without removing the audio of the former. For the latter, when I dragged the scenes in, I dragged them in without audio, minus the ones where I added in ones where the characters spoke. I had to reorganize some scenes, rendered them, then exported resulting in the video below:
My second project was an anaglyph-a-gif, also from the ds106 repository. It’s probably my least favorite of the two. Now, in a lot of ways, this one was easier than the trailer mashup I guess, but I didn’t get much enjoyment out of it? I mean, it was cool, but I wish I could’ve done things differently. The true reason I didn’t like this challenge much was because the person who made the tutorials for it, didn’t finish them at all. He just sort of started it and then left things from where they were. Though it didn’t really stop me from completing it. After finishing it, I’m kinda left with this feeling that I could have done better, who knows. Anyways, here’s the final result.
