Editing Etiquette: Episode 1 Released

Written by anthony on 18. April 2018 17:20

Spawning from the Weekend Watch articles, I thought it would be fun to further discuss editing techniques and effects choices in older movies.  However, I wanted to create something more engaging for the viewers and possibly, with some luck, more entertaining.  Thus enters Editing Etiquette.

Fusing humor, education, and some good, old-fashioned banter with various special guests (this one stars Akidos), I will aim to discuss how old school movies were formulated.  In Episode 1, I chose to talk about Mourning Walls Collapse.

Leave your comment below giving me your feedback.  I would love to hear what I could do better and what you particularly liked.

Your camera is shaking by the slighest movement! :(

And what about doing voice-overs, or maybe a split screen effect of you and the footage?

Yuip, have to fix the camera issue.  Perhaps will put it on a separate, non moving platform.  I did some voice overs in Episode 1, but could always do more.  And yes!  Split screens for sure both with game footage and special guests.  Thanks for the comments Dec!

Man I've never watched Mourning Walls Collapse and thought it was underground 3 because it uses same music lol. Will look forward to more of these.

What I can be improved imo:
- Tonys hat
- I felt like it needed more structure. You start with the fragpart, move to the intro texts and then went back to the frag part. Now I get it's not about dissection of a movie but about particular techniques used but I still think you could structure it better.
- 720p video about video editing in 2018
- You should really consider investing some money in a proper mic
- At the end you say 'hope to see you again' or something similar. I think you would have a lot more returning viewers if you make it work with a schedule. Maybe biweekly or something like that.(style and scheduled releases lol)
- Anthonys hat

What I enjoyed about it:
- The humoristic aspect, not just going for spilling boring info about effects out there
- The overall content that was delivered and how it was presented
- The bloopers ending

- what's that? You love the Style Exclusive hat? Nice! I'll make sure to wear two hats next time!

- correct. I agree. I sort of just free flowed it this time, but I definitely want to format it better.

- 720 is all perras fault. He recorded his part in that format. It'll definitely be 1080 from now on.

- we'll see if a better mic is worth it depending on how many of these I do and the reception. 

- hard to create a schedule right now.  It's not my day job, ya know? :-D

- what's that? You love the Style Exclusive hat...?

Finalllyyyyy it's out! 

Very entertaining!! But a better mic would be indeed godsent :p

Really interesting to hear your thoughts on old movies in this format. Never really re-watched mourning walls collapse after the first viewing. So there was quite a few things you pointed out I never noticed or had completely forgotten about.

Thanks buddy!

You know what: I'd also looOOovvVVe a little history lesson by Dr. Perfetto in the same sort of format. A recap of all the big and importand releases each year, what sort of impact they had, editing trends or techniques that where very popular at the time etc.

Now there is a novel idea. That would be a fun "special" episode

Nice one, Anthony! It was great to watch, one of my favourite movies back in the days. Looking forward to more episodes.

Can we buy the hat? :D
#12how-hiGh_ HLAE 20. April 2018 21:11
I like the overall idea and execution, points to mention:

- I want that hat
- why everyone here calls your cap a "hat"
- annoying reflections on your wall from cars that are passing by on the street
- lol at filming ultra hd video about 640*480 movies
- your eyebrows are surprisingly thick, I bet you pack dense bush in your pants as well (no homo)

#12 I can confirm the dense bush (yes homo).
#14anthony Style-Productions 24. April 2018 03:30
If only we had a Style store :D

-Cap is like a beanie, ya? Hat's a hat.  With a brim.
-Yes.  Hate it.  I live on a very busy road in the city.  But natural sunlight gives me good lighting.  Wish I had more lamps, ect.
- My eyebrows are themselves a character in the "show."  Should probably give them credit in the outro.
