For this assignment we filmed a scene from the movie Bridesmaids. We recorded it on a phone to get the visual but used a recorder and boom pole to capture the sound. I had to match the action of the scene to the audio from the recorder in Final Cut Pro. The biggest struggle was that the audio was running a couple of seconds behind what the person was doing/saying in the video. It took a while for me to match it up correctly. Also I couldn’t do the whole scene because in the middle when we thought we were recording with the recorder, the batteries had died so no audio was actually being recorded. There’s always a problem with the equipment.
I am focused on doing movie/ film/ media editing, so this project taught me how to match the voices to the person talking just like when voice-overs are used in movies.
