Here’s a first edit of the “getting around” section of Hello Tokyo. It conveys information and tells the story, but it’s not yet elegant…or even close to being finished. I’ve taken the clips and put them into order—story-boarding with the video instead of paper. It’s missing the overlays, music, transitions and voiceovers. Those will come later
Getting Around 3’24” (2.5 MB MPEG 4)
I will be putting Hello Tokyo on hiatus (again) while I make the switch from Adobe Premiere to Final Cut Pro. Unfortunately, I can’t import my Premiere files to FCP, so I’ll be starting over from scratch on the project.
It’s not such a bad thing. I wanted to redo most of the editing to match the new music and the visual theme of the title sequence. I’ll have a tailor-made reason to learn FCP inside out. I’m itching to get Hello Tokyo finished!
Apple’s offering a $500 rebate if I buy before September 20th and mail them my Premiere install CD. That’s an offer I can’t refuse. Adobe’s stopped making Premiere for the Mac, so I’ll have to switch eventually. May as well do it now while it’s not so expensive.Posted by kuri at August 09, 2003 01:07 PM
