Final Video

For my final video I decided to create it in Final Cut Pro. I used the same song as I did in my practice video. This time, instead of using the video of the trailer and the small clip of myself, I filmed myself doing parkour in the college hall. I also had Jac and Kieran doing their dancing. But this time I really wanted to put the effort into making this an exciting video, so I went out and filmed myself and my friend Liam doing parkour at the Villa Marina, Douglas Promenade and The Ellen Vannin Gym.

To add text to the video I went to the titles menu and selected which style I wanted. In this case I used Assembler. To the upper right hand side is where I can edit the text, font, size of the text and it’s position. I can also change the length of how long the text is on the screen. I can adjust this on the timeline by dragging the event to the left to make it shorter and to the right to make it longer.


In the effects menu I added graphic in the stylise category. This effect makes the picture black and white. I can edit how much white and how much black is in it with the Amount and Pivot sliders. The image below the effects menu shows the effect it has on my video.


For the music video I made it transparent so more than one video can be seen at the same time. I had the music video playing while the parkour videos were playing. I made it transparent by changing the Blend Mode to Multiply.


For outdoor videos I had to change the multiply level to 50% so both the music video and outdoor video was visible.


For indoor videos I had the multiply level at 70%.

Here is my final video
