Post Production – Another Full Edit

The first edits of the complete footage were Ok but I felt that the clips used for transitions did not work as well as planned and that the soundtrack, while perfect for the dance sequence did not fit the interview sequence. Therefore the full video had a sountrack that effectively jumped between +6Db and -32Db effectively On/Off between cuts.

On a positive note however I successfully created a colour balance preset for colour grading the interview clips. This visually appealing effect reduced the overall saturation and also reduced the negative effects from the blown out regions of the video created by the mirrors and the numerous bulbs.

I also decided to drop some of the interview questions firstly as I felt they added little to the overall result and secondly by dropping these the overall length of the documentary was reduced down to just over 5 minutes.
