A couple of weeks ago we were able to get the video shot for “Sleeping Alone Again”. I got to play Director for a day…of course, I was the actor as well and the lighting person! Since then I have trimmed the clips and I also edited some photos of me in the studio doing the recording. I plan on using those shots closer to the end of the video. I will be using Final Cut Pro to create the video and sync it to the soundtrack. I have added some third party effects, generators, titles, and transitions in my Final Cut Pro X. I have paid for a few, but if you are into doing your own videos and need tips, insights, and some teaching moments, I’m going to suggest to you that you check out Ryan Nangle. He is a young man making his mark! He offers free products as well as paid bundles. He also does tutorials. Cool stuff. The other gentleman who has been helpful in my learning curve with Final Cut Pro and Motion is Israel Hyman, or as he is known on the web, Izzy Video. He too offers tutorials, some free stuff and “stuff” you may have to pay for. Both guys have been well worth visiting. I am in the process of learning the mastering end of my song. I’ll go into how I’m tackling that one in my next post. In the meantime, all the best and stay well! Sue
