Fans and spambots alike, I am proud to share with you today the first Edible Norris video, ever:
embedded by Embedded Video
We storyboarded, shot and edited it ourselves. This may be apparent when you watch it. For those of you who want to make your own music videos, here are some helpful tips:
- You can never have enough footage. Believe me.
- Make sure establishing shots are really long.
- For shots where you plan to add titling, frame it to give the text enough space, preferably on a simple background that contrasts nicely.
- Lining up audio and video across multiple shots can be a challenge since audio has 44,100 “frames” per second and video only has 30. Find a way to synchronize the start of all shots with the audio.
- Be warned when shooting outdoors: the brightness, contrast and color saturation change constantly!
- If possible, normalize the brightness/contrast/saturation on all of your clips prior to editing. This will prevent shenanigans when you put two clips with different settings on the same track for transition purposes.
- Accept that you don’t know what you’re doing, really, and that you will screw up.
