This week at Christ Community Church (CCC) I have been editing all of the footage I was able to capture for the Micah’s Promise promotional video. This has taken hours of work, and as I stated in my previous blog, I am very new to recording and editing video. I did not realize how time consuming editing this video would truly be. Every time the speaker says um or pauses for longer than normal, you have to edit that out. On top of that, you have to make sure that you do not cut out any words that you need for the next scene. After that, you have to add in a voice over, and transitions from one scene to the next, and finally, you need some background music. Also, the background music cannot be copy written music if you want to use the video for public relations.
This video has truly been so much work, but I have wonderful news to go along with the hours I have spent recording and editing this video. The Micah’s Promise Board wants to put the video I created on the website!!! I cannot tell you how excited this makes me because I was doubting my skills and ability, but my hard work has paid off and I am so joyful about this!
