SESSION 9

Handout: AUDIO WORKFLOW

FCPX AUDIO

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.

ALSO:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. TOPIC DOES NOT MATTER. WE JUST NEED NICE LOOKING PHOTOS (in focus, good exposure, decent color).
  4. 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.
  5. Drop the jpg's in the Assignment Drop Box "Stills for Poster" folder.
  6. Post your images to the Media Page on your project website.
