CINESTUDY (formerly Framelines) presents an Interactive Project and EDIT CHALLENGE!
Anyone can download the raw footage and edit the scene together however you want. YOU can be our editor!
EDITING A SEQUENCE OF SCENES

YOU get to be our editor on this project. Cinestudy presents the raw footage for three different scenes that can be edited together into a sequence. In Scene 01 we have a scene where a team of criminals are planning a heist. From there, Scene 02 is the badass female prepares her gear for the job, and Scene 03 shows her entering a building and getting attacked by henchmen.
In this CINESTUDY project, you get to SHOOT! What is missing from this footage is what goes in-between, like ESTABLISHING SHOTS (outside of buildings) or a TRAVEL MONTAGE (shots of cars driving, showing how the woman gets from place to place), which we encourage you to shoot yourself or find that footage online to edit into your sequence.
During this COVID-19 crisis, the creators of Cinestudy have been affected financially. Please consider a donation to support the artists and educators that are giving these free filmmaking projects to the public. Any amount can help! Thank you.
In the future, the creators of Cinestudy are going to do live streams and review some of your edits and talk about what you did good and some helpful tips, so look out for those shout outs to some of you guys doing these projects.

I’ve made this using the time compression footage, editing the full take down to about 20 seconds. I chose the music I wanted to edit to – Training Day by Nicolas Jeudy and Dark Fantasy Studio – before starting this edit and it really informed my decision making as to where I put the jump cuts. I think it works quite effectively and there’s a nice balance between successions of quick jump cuts and slightly longer shots.
After finishing the edit and being happy with the timing I tried my hand at a bit of colour correction and colour grading using Vegas Pro 16’s built-in FX, this time trying some things that were a bit more advanced than I did in The Plan. It was a good learning experience, but I’m not 100% happy with the final result. In particular the three shots where the character is holstering a pistol then loading and holstering a second pistol have a jarring change in brightness which, despite my efforts, I couldn’t quite fix. I’m considering making the switch to DaVinci Resolve, at least for colour grading purposes but really I think it’s just something I will have to spend more time studying. Any (absolute beginner) tips on colour correction would be great!
Next up match cutting before finally putting all three together into a sequence.
