We have now finished our editing process for the main task. We have created our titles, showing the actors and crew. We have also managed to put the music onto the footage and altered it so that it doesn't drown out the sound of the camera flash when the still images appear on screen. Finally we have added some last minute transitions such as a Cross fade so that the footage doesn't look so jumpy. I think we have done well today and we have been able to export our film on to quick time movie so that it is ready to put onto Youtube and post onto our blogs.

We have had a small problem with our music for our film as 'Our Way' by Christina Novelli was removed from youtube and is unavailable from iTunes. However we were able to contact her manager:
Hi there my mate sent you a email and this is want you sent back.
I am Christina Novelli's manager. Thank-you for your request to use "Our Way" in your
I am pleased to confirm that you can use the track for your project.
They were very pleased with this but however they are unable to get the song on iTunes or YouTube anymore. Is there any possibility that you could email the mp3 file, or know anywhere else they could get the music from.
Thank you for taking your time to read this, many thanks.
The manager then contacted us back:
I have attached the MP3 of 'Our Way' by Christina Novelli, for you, to this email.
I am happy to let you use the track for your project as mentioned in the previous e-mail. However, you must not upload, use or give the track to anyone else, for any other reason than the agreed project. I hope this helps, and i would love to see your finished project!
This has helped greatly and we are putting the music on our film next lesson, so that we can then do the finish touches and if need be match the video to the tempo of the track.

Today in our lesson we have been able to accomplish a lot. We have speed up some of our footage so that is seems more dizzy and comical, we have also found a way to put our still images on a white boarder to make them look more like snap shots. So far our footage is at a total of 2 minutes 30, so we do need to cut it down by quite a bit. However we feel that there is some things missing and some parts can be quite slow and boring so we are going to try and take some more still images to slot into the longer clips and we have also filmed a variety of shot angels that we are importing. We are hoping to get our music onto an MP3 file as soon as possible so that we can match the footage with the tempo of the song. We have also started to experiment with adding titles to get an idea on which ones we would like to use in the end.
