Final Edit - Title Sequence

This is the final edit of our title sequence, we have made some improvements on the sound and changed some of the titles around.

Editing

Today was my last day of editing. I had all the footage which was collected over 15 filming days and I sat down for exactly 8 hours editing. As editor, I feel as if I've come a long way. This would be factors such as learning how to key frame. I didn't know how to key frame so I had to go on YouTube and learn from there. Which is one of the reasons why editing took so long. Key framing is just one of the many factors I learnt on Final Cut Pro X. Factors such as using motion and applying to final cut pro. Also, the footage wasn't as long as the music so I had to edit the music as well.
To conclude,  I really enjoyed editing on Final Cut Pro X and I know that I can still improve on my editing skills.

Final thoughts

As a whole I think that as a group, we could've talked together and be more organised in the beginning of our title sequence journey. We done most of our stuff individually when it came to blogging, and the only time we came together was in class. Also, it was very hard for me to edit on my own as we only had 2 or 3 sessions which we used to edit as a group and even this made a difference. After our first screening of our title sequence, our teacher informed us that we need to come together more and that this was the main problem. After this warning, we made a group chat where we started to talk to each other and arranged filming days. On this group chat, I would send them the videos I edited and ask their opinion on it. All in all, I feel as if we slacked at the beginning of the title sequence but made a good come back towards the end.
Also, if we compare our title sequence to others in the class, you may notice that it is shorter. The reason behind this is because we as a group decided that it would considered more of a prologue instead of a title sequence. And in this, we believe that we do a good job in showing the audience a dream of a young kid wanting to become a footballer and we finish it with Jack signing the professional contract which then brings the opening of the film.

Feedback to our second edit

Here is a feedback from a stranger which I asked on my street. To summarise, she said that she couldn't understand what was going on and said that she wouldn't go to the film.

Title Sequence draft 2

This is our second edit of our title sequence. I made changes on the music as well as this, we decided that the footage in this clip will be the order of how it goes. Future changes will possibly be made on the title fonts and the music.

Feedback from class


This is the feedback that was given to us by our classmates. The main critiscism we got was how the sequence lacked narrative. We intend to develop this in the future
