We will provide you will a script and all the footage to practice editing a scene, free of charge. All we ask is that you use the complete credits either in your movie or in the description online. And don’t for get to use our Hashtags #Sonnyboo and #Cinestudy

For this first exercise, we have a scene in a restaurant. The goal is to use the footage where the Camera Tells the Story. Look for camera angle that shift or change to match what is happening with the story.  For a little bit more on Using the Camera to Tell a Story, check out this clip

THE OBJECTIVE – Edit a scene that makes it clear to the audience whether the man cheated or not.

In the future, we will be viewing and reviewing some people’s edits for a live stream so we can tell you what we liked and what we think you can do to improve your filmmaking skills.

 

So the way to treat this is that the Director has sent you, the editor this footage and the script. Time to download the clips, load them up and do your version of the scene!
