Yesterday, Lessa and I edited the librarian-action-spy-style mock movie trailer, Final Check-In. Editing went extremely well. There’s one particular moment I want to share: About half way through, Lessa wanted to watch the whole video to get a feel for it. Before doing that, I quickly tossed in some background music for ambience. The song synced up beautifully. We ended up editing the rest of the video to the song, syncing up scenes with its beats and changes. There are lots of cool moments in the movie and overall it’s very smooth. We didn’t use all of the footage, but that happens. Better to have too much than not enough.
We’re going to do one last touch-up edit next week immediately followed by the watch party with the YouTube video, including blooper reel, being posted on Monday.
