Back on 25th June 2022, I live streamed the turning of a bowl and base with the aim of showing viewers what goes into the filming of a YouTube video. Scroll to the bottom of the article to see the final edit.
The filming went generally as expected – it took longer than anticipated by a couple of hours this time round. I’m certainly out of practise – and it showed in the footage.
Starting at 10am, the aim was to turn the relatively simple project and record the process, editing on the fly as I have been doing for a couple of years now. This time though, the process was to be streamed live for viewers on YouTube and Facebook.
And here are some photos.
There was a section when my microphone battery died, and I am very grateful to Paul Kavanagh for phoning the shop to let me know – he saved that portion of the video and potentially blowing the whole thing!
For editing, I use Adobe Premiere Pro CC which is an industry standard editing software. I could probably get away with using something else, but seeing as I use other Adobe products.
It looks complicated, but after editing a couple of videos, it is fairly easy to find what you need.
Music in my videos is important to me. It adds to the ‘infotainment’ style of the videos I produce. A great deal of time is taken during the editing process to find tracks I like from the Epidemic Sound library I subscribe to. The tracks are then put into the video and footage largely edited to fit the music.
Overall, from five and a half hours of recorded footage, this video took somewhere around 4-6 hours (I didn’t time it!) to edit in the version you can see below.
The general YouTube audience only watches around a maximum of 20 minutes of finished videos. As such, there is a lot from the stream that is missing from the edit which is unavoidable if I am hopeful of as many people watching the final cut as possible.
If you tuned into the live stream, thank you very much for your time and I hope you enjoy the final version.
