Video/Finalcut Express

These video projects have been very time consuming. The only advice I can give is do not start a project if you do not have the time. It took weeks to film and edit a ninety second clip. That should put things in perspective.

Storyboarding and scripting, necessary parts of the filmmaking process, take a lot of time and effort to complete, and they must be done before filming even begins.

Finalcut Express, our editing program, while not as user friendly as iMovie, has several allows the user to use several tools unavailable on iMovie, the problem is figuring out how to use them.

But the actual time commitment commanded by even a short film requires a great deal of consideration before filming has begun. Assure that you have the available time to film and edit.
