Editing the first 30 seconds

  1. 1. HOW I EDITED THE FIRST 30 SECONDS OF THE TRAILER Eleni Papaioannou
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION Although both Chloe and I equally split the camera work and shots by taking it in turns to film on our filming days. All the footage was uploaded onto my laptop and I took a lead role in the editing stages of our trailer. This included the editing of shots (both editing the shots together and editing individual shots) as well as finding and editing the music and sound effects. In this presentation I will go through my thought process and the action I took when editing together our trailer. After I edited our trailer fully we then sat down and made minor changes.
  3. 3. PART ONE I took inspiration for the first two shots of the trailer from the Rememory by having a long shot followed by an arial close up. For this section of the trailer I decided to have on average a longer shot duration than later on as this will create a slow and mellow atmosphere. This will reflect Bea’s peaceful life before and create a juxtaposition to the high intensity mood later on. Here are the first two shots from Rememory and below are the first two shots of our trailer. You can see the similarities between the shots. However I decided to have the establishing shot be the water running as water one of the most important themes throughout the trailer as it is Bea’s irrational fear that Justin is trying to drown her that leads her to kill Justin. Water is also a symbol of purity and cleansing so by playing this shot at the beginning of the trailer I am not only establishing the theme of water/drowning but also hinting to the character of Bea as she is in the following shot.
  4. 4. PART TWO I made use of the built in transitional features during the first 30 seconds of the trailer in particular the fade to black transition. This was because from my research I discovered trailers like The Gift and Inception used this style of transition to establish a new setting or shot. I used the fade to black transition between a few different shots within the first part of the trailer. Such as from the long shot of Bea and Justin holding hands that then cuts to the shot reverse shot between them. Using this transition added a sense of professionalism and also adds mystery to the trailer as the shots become concealed slightly by the transition so not everything about the film is given away.
  5. 5. PART THREE THE FADE TO BLACK TRANSITION
  6. 6. SHOT REVERSE SHOT EDITING I decided to cut this scene using a shot reverse shot of the two main characters. This was to highlight the close personal connection between the two. Additionally, the continuity between shots adds to the ordinary and peaceful atmosphere as everything happens in order. In general, it was a lot easier for me to edit the first part of the trailer due to the mood and atmosphere I wanted to create. The calm mood was created through the long shot duration, the minimal editing of shots and high key lighting.
