For those of us with no final project to edit, here are some reminders about the Volleyball Video.
- The opening footage of the two teams warming up is shaky – there’s lots of movement that isn’t very good to watch. Only use sections where the camera stands still, and there isn’t much, so choose wisely.
- Avoid pans where the camera moves from one group to another, unless I’m following the ball during the game.
- Cut out the scoreboard shots. They’re too short to be much good.
- Audioblocks needs to be renewed, so use Incompetech for your music, and be sure to credit things properly.
- Play your song all the way through, then use another one. Don’t loop one piece of music over and over again, or play the same song five times.
- Don’t forget your procedure on credits.
- When you call me over to grade anything, you should have either a Peer Eval sheet or a Grading Rubric for Video Projects on your desk, filled out and initialed by at least four people. Each of them should leave at least one written comment next to their initials. Give me detail about what you like or don’t like. “Good job” isn’t enough. Be as picky as I am, and you'll find, and correct, more of your own mistakes.
