Here is an edited RECord of the introduction from the 2011 Fall Formal. Instead of putting everything together in 1 RECord (like my Sundance video), I'm going to try to make a series of edited RECords of the event.

NOTE: If I've missed crediting anybody's REcord here, please let me know, and I'll fix it.

    Comment: Fantastic Introduction indeed! This is a very well made edit you got here jcpeterson, great use of so many angles from the event - it really puts you back in the moment. I especially dig the pre-show video of the setup and venue that you cut in during the intro music. Your edits to the beat really enhance the overall movement and energy of the piece. And you kept the ball moving all the way through most of Joe's monologue, a really killer job!

    My main note is, although 12.42's "Animated Fall Formal 2011" animation is so awesome, I don't think it's necessary to include at the beginning of your cut for 2 reasons:
    1) As is, it takes about a minute to get to your edit, which is too long to wait for the goods in my opinion.
    2) In this specific case - it kinda works as an introduction to an introduction - which there is no need for redundancy in any edit unless you really need to drive a point.

    If you really want it in there than maybe cut it down to 5-10 seconds?

    Also - When Joe starts talking about hitRECord, the website and the camera setup - it might be a good opportunity to add some cutaways of the website and community. Or add some cool looking archive footage of cameras and technology or whatever you think works! We don't need to stay solely in the Fall Formal world so use any opportunity to take the viewer some else with it.

    Once again - great work!

    @Dr. Gory Thanks! I'll definitely try making some adjustments to the video.

    I am glad you put together an entire assembly of the intro, using all of the audio. Editing together full assemblies is a great way to start these short films. Once the full assembly is up with video footage synched to all the audio, further remixing can be done to whittle the time down if needed and alternate angles can be explored by other editors. Thanks for getting this section going and for using a wide variety of clips. Keep it up!

    I love the variety of angles you used throughout this, and I really loved the sections where you showed more than one angle on screen. Techniques like that really pull me into the atmosphere of the event. Great job!

    Splicing together the live footage with the intro video is a really cool idea! Bravo!

    Hey jcpeterson!

    I took another look at this and have some thoughts. What do you think?

    *Refine some of the LIVE cuts/angles while adding more of the audience's footage.

    *Take out entire animated Fall Formal Animated intro.

    *Replace JeHu Garcia's BTS footage with alt shots of the venue full with audience.

    *Refine split screen use while eliminating all 1/4 screen divisions.

    *Try to find more energy in the edit - because the moment itself is somewhat "energy-less"
