Our planning affected our b-roll because we took too long to get our filming done, so we couldn't get our extra b-roll. Without enough b-roll, we had to use our shots over and over again which didn't look too interesting. If I could have a do-over and take more b-roll it would have made the final product more exciting. Imagine watching the same video sequence over and over again. Pretty boring, right? Now try to imagine watching all kinds of shots in a sequence to tell a story... isn't that better? By switching things up during the video it could help keep the viewer engaged.
Some of you may be wondering "How could your planning have affected your editing?". Well, by not planning better we were late for the editing room, which means that we had less time to edit. I felt the pressure build while editing because the time was ticking away, so I feel like it could have been edited better with more quality work.
We cut it close to the turn-in time. In the very last 10 seconds of the contest, the count down started. In those remaining seconds we had 10 seconds to get our product onto the flash drive and hand it in the basket before the last second. The planning played a big a BIG roll in this part because we didn't start exporting our video early enough, so we cut it super close and turned it in 6 seconds before the end of the contest. This was so stressful.
So, proper planning is the key to being in Music Video. Without planning well you may not have time to film your b-roll, edit, and may cut it close to the count down. If I could do-over one mistake I would rewind to last year's STN days to fix my planning strategy. ByE!!!
