Making a little film about a motif
This video is an example of basic use of film and editing to document making a motif, using a software such as Kinemaster.
1. I set up my paper. Took up the tablet, opened Kinemaster, positioned the camera, and pressed the RED button. I drew a bit. I made a mistake, rubbed it out, I kept filming. I wobbled a bit, and so it would have been good to have a friend doing the filming. Then nature of the shot is called a CLOSE-UP.
2. I finished filming, pressing the RED button again. I found the clip by clicking MEDIA, then ALL.
2. I made the motif later on in the garden, using sticks and shells. The figure came out a bit different to the drawing, but for me this was okay.
3. I filmed myself walking around my motif. The nature of this shot would be called an ABOVE SHOT. And also a CIRCLING SHOT.
4. I pressed MEDIA, ALL. I found my clips. I clicked them, they came onto the Timeline automatically.
5. I played with shortening/lengthening the clips, by dragging their edges in and out.
6. I used the recording option (by pressing the microphone symbol) to record myself talking about the motif.
I talked about this motif. What does it mean to me? Where did I learn it?
What do I want to say about it?
7. I shared the video by pressing the little box with arrow coming out.
This was just a simple start. I could have filmed much more, in many different ways. I could have added music, visual effects, other images.
It all depends on what you want to say.
