From here on out in the term, consider working in a FCP suite. Here's how to set up your external drive so you can work anywhere our version of FCPX is installed.
LEC 9 – Audio for Nonfiction
See the LMW FCPX page for more resources.
LAB 9: (2.5 hrs) Production meetings with instructors.
- Work on your project — the deadline for the final critique is 30 minutes before the lecture two sessions from now.
- This is the second important deadline in the class: your grade will automatically drop 10% if the H.264 .mov file is not in the Assignment Drop Box at lecture start time.
- Checklist: final edit, finished soundtrack, motion graphics, color correction.
- Pull at least TWO .jpg stills (or pull them from your video footage) that could represent your film on the LMW screening poster on the TV's around the school.
- You do not need to crop or resize images, we will do that. Just understand that the poster format for the image is 3x wider than it is high — give us images that could work in a wide horizontal format.
- TOPIC DOES NOT MATTER. WE JUST NEED NICE LOOKING PHOTOS (in focus, good exposure, decent color).
- Choose images that fit our extra wide format. Close-ups are good. Humans doing things are good. Faces are good. Groups of people are good. Note: this is about good photography, so make sure the image is in focus, color is decent, etc.
- Drop the jpg's in the Assignment Drop Box "Stills for Poster" folder.
- Post your images to the Media Page on your project website.
(and it’s cousin for sound effects as well as some music)
