Tell A Story In 10 Seconds…Sell Your Soul In 15.

It’s finally here. The first VIDEO made as part of my degree. It’s been a long time coming

Very simple brief here. ‘Tell a story in 10 seconds’ – not as easy to execute.

The main difficulty in this task is being scrutinous in the editing suite, and cutting everything done to its most important. Quick, invisible edits. I think I managed to achieve this, by leaving out in-between shots, allowing the viewer to fill in the gaps themselves. Originally, it was soundtracked to an original composition recorded by myself to a single channel tape deck, however it was decided that it wasn’t fast-paced enough, and so ‘5’ by Three Trapped Tigers was chosen, and chopped instead. I think it suits the final product (no pun intended) quite well. Overall, this was a great beginning to what shall end in much longer productions. Maybe ones that don’t chip away at my soul quite so much too…

    This is an effective little edit…you are right to suggest that we can allow the audience to fill in the gaps I leaving us with a very economic edit. You could try tweaking it further, shaving a few frames here and there to see where the limit of intelligibility might be? You establish the narrative with a close up of ‘butter’ that gives the audience a clue as to what might follow…good technique
