What were you trying to accomplish?I wanted to make something that would be like a video that a business or a college could use and put on social media to attract business/new students.
I used my skill with the digital camera to take hundreds of photographs to create an image sequence. I then put them into aftereffects and stabilized the footage. I added music, titles, and transitions in Premiere Pro.
What technical skills did you use to create the project?
How do you feel you did on the project?I think that the final product was good, but the hiccups in the footage bother me. When I was taking photos in front of the Cascade building I used the Pierce logo as a focal point, but I found that as I moved closer to it I was pointing the camera too high, so I had to try and manually transition to facing toward the doors, and it was really choppy.
Also during the Waughop Lake shoot, I had the building across the lake as my focal point, and as a passed a tree stump, I couldn't see the building and it caused the footage to jump around. I tried masking out the stump like the video tutorial suggested, but it made the footage jump around even worse than without the mask.
Next time I can anticipate things like this happening, and maybe do a trial run first of the area to prevent issues like this happening and compensate for it.
