Good Enough by Evanescence (Home Video)

11 replies 123 views Edited May 31, 2013

I stepped outside of my comfort zone on this one to try and gain some experience doing different type videos (this song was hard for me haha) , its not near as good as some others i've done imo but I like to get feedback on any video I do.

 

 Doing this one did give me a chance to use the cameras more and get some shots I did like , thanks for any feedback on the video.

 

 Movie maker appears to be working now so this is the lastone using youtubes editor I am hoping haha.

The pace of the music let you get away with those long video shots. Kudo's for editing with Youtubes steaming pile. :smileyhappy: loved the song. I think this was a good experience for a few reason for you. Scenic shots are always nice. Appreciated the effort and I know you have some video making passion.  What did you learn making this video?

     I learned quite a bit honestly haha.

 

    - Try to use the same people in videos to avoid any conflicts

    - I leaned just how badly youtubes editor sucks (not an excuse but while editing this smh)

    - I finally learned a bit of patience , I had many ideas for this video but I was getting aggravated at howlong it was taking me to try to find people to help as well as setting up sets.

 

     - It might not show in this video but I did find that the smallest things regarding items and details in spaces make a hugs difference

 

   - I did gain some control on some shots I could'nt do before ,there's also some I did'nt use that did'nt fit the video once I started editing , I should have waited and filmed more but its really hard finding people who can help when i'm in a zone to film if that makes sense lol , I kind of have to feel the music when doing these and I honestly could'nt get there with this but I wanted to try something different to try and gain experience.

 

  There's more I know but honestly my head hurts from doing this one ,I just finished editing it and found I needed 3 times more clips for it , I have now heard this song at least a hundred times and I am so glad i'm finished with it haha.

 I did want to add , I gained alot more respect for those who do videos , I can't lie , I was starting to think I could do any video with little experience doing them and doing this one taught me I have much to learn when getting outside of my comfort zone lol.

Good that you see things like that. I noticed a lot of shots. I know it can be a pain. Also, you mentioned something about being out of your elememnt or something similair.

On my The Walking Dead Home video I had shots and incorporated actual live video series shots from the TV show if you remember seeing it.

I had to make a Video layout Plan. some shots made it in but a few didn't even after shooting them. I kept very rough notes but it helped me get the final product I wanted. Looked like this.

 

Logo splash.

 Splash TWD letter picture  , music start. Use B for sound affects

 Show field plants blowing in wind.

 TWD house picture

 more feild shots

 Rick by fire.

 

---------------------------------------------

 

(video clips of show are)

 

tent zombie attack

House porch rick lori 

shane car

Shane rick killing moon 

zombie herd

barn burning

michonne

prison

 

---------------

 

splash rick gun pose pic

phone.

-------------

Just an idea for you incase you get overwelmed in the future.

This is so true. I know and have talked to some very good video creators here. I have spent 13-17 hours on some videos in the past from start to finish. Very time consuming. Very rewarding if you feel you got it right. pretty cool'

Looking back , I believe doing just that would've made helped a TON , I have yet to try doing that but you better believe I will next time lol.

 

 I believe getting down on paper what I want first will help me translate that to film once I begin  ( loved that you done btw).

 

 Thanks for the advise as I believe this will help a lot , after watching this video a fewtimes now I know I can do a lot better so after a break and i find a song I would like to do , I am motivated to get a really great video going.

 

 All tips are appreciated as always and thanks again :smileyhappy:
