I found this edit a bit more challenging than the restaurant scene and it took me a few false starts to get a feel for what I wanted to do. Eventually I settled on the idea that it should be quick scene that “gets in and gets out” sort of reflecting how the characters would behave on their heist. The overall goal for is to establish the role of each character, e.g. the leader, the driver, and the two henchmen, which I think I achieved quite nicely. I tried to keep the cuts tight to keep momentum in the scene although watching it back there are perhaps a few cuts to and from the table that I could have tightened up even more. I also used this as a chance to play around with brightness and contrast as well as some colour balance FX on Vegas Pro 16 and in the final edit I increased the red highlights on all the footage to give it a slightly warmer look and make the red tape and the red car in the background pop a little.
It was also a good exercise in finding suitable stock footage to bridge the two halves of the scene. I found a timelapse video of a cityscape (https://archive.org/details/Flickr-6260278420) and added a police siren to suggest the heist taking place which I think works quite efficiently to tie the two scenes together. In an earlier edit I preceded the siren with a shotgun blast and breaking glass but eventually I decided this was a bit too much.
Next, I’m going to try editing this into a longer sequence using the match cutting and time compression footage.
I think you guys provide invaluable resources to people who, like myself, need raw footage and good tutorials to improve their filmmaking and editing skills.
