Video + Blog = A Lesson in Editing

July 8th, 2011 | Categories: Intern Blog

Buenos Tardes Amigos! Serena here.

I spent most of the day getting the 101 on editing from one of the other MVP Video Production workers, Eric Foley. By the end of the day, I learned how to “snap,” a video segment, how to add text to the picture, how to export the video to YouTube, and lots of other vital editing tips.

One lesson I’m learning about editing is this: it takes time. It’s easy to think “A needs to happen, then B and then C.” But, to actually sit down and figure out HOW A happens can be challenging. Sometimes I wish I was a computer programmer and could speak the complicated language of MAC or PC. Sometimes, then I remember there will always be something to learn now matter how much knowledge I have.

I’m also realizing how valuable “shadowing” someone is. Seeing someone work with a software program that they are familiar with and who is able to explain what steps they are taking can get you much further than trying to figure something out by yourself. There has to be a balance.

Hasta luego!
