I created the video itself in Sony Vegas. As mentioned in the “Context” section, the product is largely based on commonly-found Youtube “supercuts.” As such the video is composed of simple hard cuts in sequence. I chose not to use fancier transitions because hard cuts accentuate the idea of the video: I am essentially “ripping away” the outcome of each clip from the viewer. Therefore I feel it would inappropriate to use a soft fade. I also chose to play the audio from each clip slightly before and after the video cuts in / out. This makes the cuts seem less harsh but preserves the aforementioned hard cut. Also I can further “hint at” the outcome of the video through the audio without showing the actual video. For example, in the clip where the boat crashes into the dock, I let the audio play for a few extra frames to allow the crashing sound to play.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
