Another thing that we learned about was padding. Padding is when you leave a few seconds before and after the footage that you are filming. This method is used when filming because it takes the camera a few seconds to process what is happening. This is very important because without padding you may cut off the first few words/seconds of what you are filming. The same goes for after your footage. Without padding after your footage you might cut off the last few words/seconds in your footage. And that is why padding is CRUCIAL when you are filming.
During this project I had my ups and my downs. A few ups that I had was when we first started editing. It pretty much came to me naturally and I got a huge jump start because I had all of my b-roll and I was able to stay on task and correctly place my b-roll onto my audio, therefore I was ahead so I could start on my effects and transitions earlier than others. Some down parts for me on this project is when we had to complete our b-roll filming. We only had one week to complete all of our filming and I was pretty busy that week so finding time to film was kind of hard for me. For me I could improve, a lot on keeping up with all of the due dates and not only making sure that I make them, but making them with exemplary work. And that's a little bit about how the first project in my class went.
