For Funday Friday this week I took on a little experiment of sorts… It started with trying to take some stereographs using the new Nimslo 35mm camera I got. I took the film to get developed, scanned them into Photoshop, cropped the images that “worked”, and then assembled them in Final Cut Pro! A lot of work but a really sweet effect! It was all experimental because I have never done the process before, I had never even used the Nimslo before this week, so I didn’t even know if the film was going to turn out.
From there, the editing piece kind of just drove itself. I love to let the music take control of the edit and see where it goes. The big challenge I gave myself was to make something out of nothing with this piece. I threw in a bunch of random video clips from past films, then I arranged them to the music and tried to connect them all somehow, to give meaning to nothing so to say.
I love editing because as an editor you are the story teller. You can juxtapose anything back to back and tell whatever story you want. Reminds me of all those horror trailers that people edit out of Disney movies, haha! Being an editor, you really have all the power. Yeah, if you work for under a director they guide your editing, but you can always try something crazy and see what they think! Tell whatever story you want through your editing, challenge yourself try something crazy or new in your editing and let me know how it goes!
Here’s the gif versions of the photos taken with the Nimslo:
