Cutting on the Action with Animated GIFs!

JO —  September 27, 2013

Previously I talked about how framing affects the way multiple shots are put together into an intelligible sequence. In other words in such a way that the viewer is almost not conscious of the cuts and can focus on the message of the video. Cutting on action is another technique to edit shots together is such a way that the viewer is not jarred or disoriented by the cuts. This can be useful in almost all types of video.

  • In event videography cutting on the action is a way to make your videos stand out from the crowd.
  • In independent film and short film your success may depend on how well you are able to “seamlessly” edit together a series of shots.
  • Even in a simple vlog cutting on the action can help make your videos better.

The process is simple, when making a cut from one clip to the next use the natural motion of your subject as a cue. Even if you’re not shooting the same scene over and over again from various angles, the process can still be used. There are a few things to be mindful of when shooting the video and when sitting down to edit it.

Audio Recording For Videos: On-Board vs. External Microphones

The modern camera is truly an ingenious device. The image quality that cameras produce is continuing to grow exponentially. But recording audio is a whole different ball game. The microphone on your camera, or on-board mic, works, but if you really want to get serious you’ll have to explore other options.

There are many things that affect audio recording.

  • Low Quality Mics

    While most cameras have decent audio recording capabilities, many do not. These include still cameras that also shoot video, webcams, and camera phones.

  • Proximity

    If your microphone is not close enough to your subject, audio will suffer. That’s why you see those big boom poles in the movies. They want to get that microphone as close to their subject’s lips as possible.
