Working on a full length any suggestions?
« on: July 16, 2017, 12:50:49 PM »
Anything would help like:

Picking music
Editing process (ex. Putting everything on one timeline or making different sequences)
 Deciding who gets what part
 Actually deciding if it should be premiered and make copies or go straight to the Internet

Any ideas or suggestions would help.

If its a homie video, who cares about music rights. Let the skaters choose their songs
Premier it, whether its in your garage or a theater, premiers are fun
Have Premiere Pro or Final Cut
Have a good quality camera (DSLR will do fine) or VX

Most importantly, choosing your skaters! I worked on a full length with some homies and they were shit. I mean they were good, but immature and fucking stupid. Don't choose stupid immature skaters unless they are the next fucking Nyjah. Choose skaters who you are close with and you can get along well with. Relationship between filmer and skater is the most important part of filming a video.

For the b-roll diner fight, Denny's is taken. You don't want to downgrade to Waffle House, but you also don't want to get shot by the vets at IHOP. Maybe Ruby Tuesdays; you'll get a nice grandma crowd. Could probably shove around a tough one or throw a drink at them as you run shaking that camera out the door.

And elbow pads.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of retarded kids and a van full of paraplegics.

make a really cheesy plot for it like a bad porn movie. and use songs from bands like the carpenters, john denver, tom jones, billy joel, james taylor, and hall and oates.

different sequences for different parts is the best way to go about editing.

first things first... DO NOT GO THE VHS STYLE ROUTE
Shit is fucking overdone!

I have a made a few full length videos, my advice would be:

Filming:
- Filming with your friends is key!
- I found it easier to get all the filming done first, then edit.
- If you're not having fun filming, what's the point? Footage will show that.
- Upload after every session, footage might be lost or corrupted if you wait.

Editing:
- I'd recommend Premiere Pro, works well with other adobe programs like After effects and Encore
- Edit each part under the same project file but in a different sequence.
- Keep your shit organized well.. folders and bins are necessary for easy work
- Understand the flow of the video, and how each part will transition together.
- Understand your composition and what your format is. Shitty quality will make it unwatchable
- [DVD] Export each part as a regular video file from Premiere Pro, and use Adobe Encore to piece it together for a DVD. This will make chapters, menus, and will eventually create your "master copy"
- [SINGLE VIDEO ONLINE] There are multiple ways to create a final product. You can also edit in one sequence, but i wouldn't reccommend it. If you're just putting it online, import each single part into a final sequence and export that.
- If you're serious about the editing, and wanna create something a little more detailed; understand your theme and what you're trying to put out. Are you trying to put something out that looks fun, gnarly, raw, artsy, comical? Have fun with it.

Premiere:
- If you're trying to premiere at a theater, figure out how many people would actually come. For me, Entry fees covered the theater costs, and I made like 100 bucks in DVD sales.
- See if your local shop would sponsor it and help with any costs. or even market for it.
- You can always premiere it at a skate shop
- If not, premieres at homies houses is always the shit, then you can get wild.

Thats all I got. Good luck, and have fun .

This, maybe have them pick a couple because some songs may not go well with the skating. Not sure if it's just me, but prepare to not listen to some songs again until years later. I end up hating a lot of music I edit to for at least a little while haha.

We are getting away from cut scenes and themed videos in the industry. Remember how chocolate videos used to be? Well make it like a movie with different intros to everyone part but not corny like
that nike video

-"...Because we all know if Baker were Guns N Roses, Braydon would be Steven Adler..."

- "When I'm not getting laid , I'm hauling myself down a 5 flat 5....Time to man up son!"
