Recently I had the opportunity to work with my good friend Luke to produce a video for the Sportsman’s Banquet — an evangelistic event aimed at hunters at our church.
I always have a great time with any project I do with Luke. He came up with a script (partly “borrowed” from something Tripp and Tyler did) and we went from there.
I know we are going to have a good promo, when I see a lot of good stuff on the cutting room floor. You have to be merciless in the editing process and just get down to the essentials. Although It could have been 5-7 minutes long, it would not have been as effective.
Why 4×3? Since our final output (our screens in the Sanctuary) is 4×3, I usually edit onto a 4X3 timeline in FCP. One advantage is the zooming capability with HD footage on an SD timeline in the edit suite.
This was shot with one of our JVC GY-HM790U with each of us wearing wireless lavs.
I hope you like it and it gives you some ideas.
