Production Exercise (Editing)

After our group had obtained all of the recordings for the filming, we then had to individually edit all of the clips so that they would look similar to the intro in Reservoir Dogs. To begin with, the clips needed to be uploaded to the editing software and then all the important clips had to be chosen and added.

The first challenge was to put the clips in the right order. This was not very difficult as there were not too many clips to go through and sort out which would be used and which would be left behind.

After choosing which clips to use and sorting out the order, the next part was to add the audio file and try to get the cuts to work at the right time. This involved working with slow motion for the first time, and some of the clips had to be reduced in time, whilst others had to be increased. The slow motion effects seemed to work well and made the replication look more accurate.

Another challenge I came across was one part where there was a more complex animation which was not one of the preset animations for the movement of the text. I tried to replicate this by using two preset animations and layering them on top of each other so that the animation almost looked the same. A better way would definitely have been to make a custom animation, using a custom animation I would have been able to replicate the text in the exact same way that was performed in Reservoir Dogs.
