A few days ago, I decided to play with the video materials I have for Romeo and Juliet. I’d just launched the Kickstarter, and had a strong initial response, so I figured I ought to show something as a kind of reward. So here is a very rough draft of the opening scenes.
I said it was rough. I did this mainly because I have to set up the proper workflow for the project. The fastest way to edit this kind of project is as a multicamera project– you run synchronized video streams, and pick the active camara as you go along. However, editing a multicamera setup with Adobe Premiere Pro allows me only four video streams– and I have seven, plus pickup shots. So for the time being, I limited myself to the four cameras on the lower floor. There are three more cameras I’m not using here. (For example, that public official who interrupts the riot? I have him in unused footage.)
I can’t get the sound mixed until the Kickstarter’s funded, so the sound in this excerpt is a temporary track. I have to work out a workflow that enables me to work with a sound mixer as a collaborator.
