HOW TO EDIT A B-ROLL VIDEO FAST AND EFFICIENTLY IN 9 SIMPLE STEPS!

Do you know those videos existing of only clips and music? Those are often called B-roll videos. You can make them for clients, but also personal videos of your vacation. I made hundreds of those videos in my career as a filmmaker and I always edit those videos using 9 simple steps.

In this class, I teach you 9 simple steps to finish a B-roll video.

WORK WITH ME.
For this class, you can work together with me using the footage I provide you with or using your own footage. You can find more information about that in the Class Project.

If you're not already owning Premiere Pro, CLICK HERE to download it (with a free trial)

YOU LEARN A WORKFLOW
At the end of this class, you learned the perfect editing workflow to create B-roll videos. You can bring the 9 steps you learn in this class along the rest of your editing career. Because you learn a workflow instead of creating one single video. And with learning the right workflow you can save time, become more professional, and create structure inside of the creative chaos.

FOR WHO IS IT

I created this course both for the beginner, but also the experienced filmmaker. Because even as a great filmmaker you often get stuck on an edit while it doesn't have to be that hard. Learn how to handle the footage and turn it into an impressive edit.

I HOPE TO SEE YOU AS A STUDENT OF THIS CLASS SOON :)

Hi, I'm Joey. I think everybody can be a filmmaker. No matter where you live, how much money you have, what kind of gear you have or how smart you are.

That's why I share my tips and tricks for filmmaking. I want to share EVERYTHING I know to shoot amazing looking videos with your own camera, for yourself, or start working for others.

 

I've been making videos since 2011 when I started my first YouTube channel. By making silly comedy sketches on this channel I found my passion for being behind the camera and making the video itself. I went to film school but I got kicked out of it because I was already too busy focusing on video clients and following my own path.

 

In 2015 I started a new YouTube channel where I reviewed tech products and cam... See full profile

Transcripts

1. What will you learn in this class?: Hi guys and welcome to this new class where I'll teach you how to edit a bureau sequence as fast as possible in nine simple steps. My name is Joey. I'm a filmmaker and editor from the Netherlands and I've been doing filmmaking for over ten years already, But I've also been teaching online since 2013. As a filmmaker, I made a video marketing products for brands like Sony, Joby, or GoPro for example. But what I also love to do is make a cool cinematic looking Bureau sequences. And as a cool-looking video with all kinds of different shots put together with some music underneath it that gives you a really good Five, not with a really good story, but it looks really cool and it gives you a really good impression of the thing that you are shooting. And to do that in a professional but really efficient way, I always have nine steps to complete a video like that. And I want to share those steps with you and I want to edit together with you a video like that. So I designed this course for the beginner, but also the more advanced filmmaker that is shooting great footage. But it's always stuck when they start editing and start putting all the footage together to a nice, good, professional-looking sequence. So by the end of the course, you will know how to handle the footage when you're coming back from issued and when it's time to edit it all together. So you're not spending hours playing around with the separate clips to create something that you're not really satisfied with, but you have a specific process of steps to complete every project that you're working on. So that's also how I created this course. Every episode is a new step to complete the project in the last episode. So you learn a workflow instead of creating one single video. And with learning the right workflow, you can save time, become more professional at great structure inside of the creative chaos. So that is also why this class is perfect to work together with me. I will provide you with all the footage that I use. But you can also use your own footage. But if you're taking the time and take it step-by-step, like our show you and teach you in this class, then there is no other option than that. You made a nice B or sequence, a nice cinematic looking video at the end of this class. So if you recognize the problem of spending way too many hours editing your footage together to create a nice Bureau sequence, then this class is perfect for you. In the next episode, I will talk more about the class project that we're going to do. I will provide you with all the footage that I'm going to use and I will show you the end result of the thing we're going to make. So I will see you in the next episode. 2. Class project - Work together with me: Hi guys, Welcome to the second episode. And in this episode I promised you to talk more about the class project because what are we going to make? I can talk about that, but I can also show you it. Remember that our provides you with all the footage that I used in this result to make your own version of there, but I will talk more about that after the end results. So first, this is what we're going to make. Okay? So what do you think this is a simple but nice-looking beaver or sequence. And those videos you can create really easily with your own footage in nine simple steps, like photos or you can make this same example with the same footage. You can download all the footage through the link inside of the project and resources tab. And in that way you can work together with me, but you can also use, of course, your own footage to create a similar video. It is about the nine steps that I will go through in this class. So that is also the class project. I want to see some nice B-roll sequences from you. So grab your own footage or grab the footage that I will provide you go through the steps and work together with me to get a nice end result. I would love to see the projects that you send in, so please do that. But what do I use and what do you need to create these projects? First of all, you need to put it, but second of all, you need a editing software. You can use every editing software you want, but I use Adobe Premier Pro, that's the industry standard, that's my favorite. So I will use that in this class. If you have Adobe Premier Pro too, but it's a different version. It doesn't matter. You can use every version of Adobe Premiere Pro you want. And besides that, you need nothing. You need a positive and creative mindset. But that will be okay because I will guide you through all the steps. But if you're interested in Adobe Premier Pro to, but you don't have the software installed yet. That's no problem. I also provided a link to the website to download the software and you also have a 30 day free trial with that. So you can follow this course, work together with me without any other costs. So you saw the end result. You've got your footage, you know what you have to use to follow this class. Let's go to the next episode where we start with the beginning, the files, just the role. What are you going to do with it? I will show you that in the next episode. See you there. 3. The reason you should always sort your footage - step1: The reason you should always sort your footage. Hi guys and welcome to a new episode. Welcome to step one. It's a super easy step, but it's one that people often forget. In this episode, I will show you how I sort my footage, but I will also show you some other different ways to do it. But it is something to keep in mind that of course I will tell you why and because we're working together at this point, you're seeing my screen and we're going to take a look at the file management ourselves. So if you downloaded the footage, then you see these same three folders as I do at this point. So the footage is already kind of sorted. But how and why? First of all, assortment food, it's always on the camera that I use. So in this way, you see a folder called GH five and you see a folder called iPhone. Those are the two cameras I shot with to create the footage. I do that so I can always find the clip I'm looking for. So when I'm searching for that drone shot I took I don't have to go into a big folder with all the clips, but I can navigate to the drone folder. You downloaded the example footage folder, but normally I will call this folder just footage. And that's for the fourier edge is inside my big project folder. Audio is not full HMI opinion. So we put that audio folder in the same big project folder as the footage folder. And also audio is separated in music and sound effects when I'm doing another project and I have a separate camera, always on a gimbal, then it's easy to put that in a different folder. One, because when you import the footage from your camera, you do with camera by camera. So you can always make a new folder really easily. Each camera that your import the footage from. So it is not taking you extra time. But in the end, I know when I'm searching for a gimbal shot, I have to go to the folder of that camera. Another thing that doesn't take any extra time that I always do is sorted by date. If you have issued on multiple dates, you of course, import the files at the end of a day, so you can really easily make a new folder with the date. And in that folder are again the camera she shared it with. You sort your footage so that when you're in the editing process, you know immediately where to find that one shot you took when you're thinking about that, but you don't want it to take longer than normally. That's why you saw that on a really easy things like the camera you import your footage from, the date you import it on, or maybe a location because it's always shot chronological for this simple example project, sorting it by just the camera is enough. In the next episode we will open up Premier Pro, who will start a new project. And we're going through every clip to trim them one-by-one and make them editing ready. But what is editing ready and why is that necessary? I will see you in the next episode. 4. Make your clips editing ready by trimming them - step2: Make your clips editing ready by trimming them. What does that mean? Welcome back to this new episode. And in this episode, we're going to take a look at all the clips. Every clip we're gonna take a look at and we want to decide if we want to use that clip yes or no. And how can we do that efficiently? And how can we do already some work. So the editing is easier later in the process to get all the answers on that question, we're first going to open up Adobe Premier Pro. So I opened up Premiere Pro. If you don't know how to do that already, then I have a basic Adobe Premier Pro course where you can learn everything in two hours. So they should definitely check that one out. So first of course, we're going to import our footage and we're gonna make a new sequence. We're opening up our first folder. So in this case, the GH 5 folder. And we're going through every clip that is in this folder. And what are we looking for? We're looking for if a clip is nice, if we want to use a part of that clip in our video. So we click on the first one, we double-click on it and then we will just watch the clip from the beginning. And if it is something we want to use in the video, which this isn't, then we're going to make an in and out points. I think this is a nice one. So I want to use this shot. Then we're scrolling through the shot and we're making it in and the out point for the part we want to use. So we're making an in point. So at this point we're making outbound. So what we do now is we will drag this video clip already on the timeline, keep existing settings. And now we have our first clip and then we're going to the next one and we do the same thing over and over again. We're scrolling through everything. So he may be in the output. We drag the video only on the timeline. But at this point we already can do some other things like, for example, slow-motion. Because when I'm taking a look at this clip, and this clip is shot at 60 FPS. And I think it will look way nicer if this clip in slow motion. So at this point we're already go to the timeline. We're zooming in, taking declared and putting it on 50 percent slow motion. But this is a super rough selection of the files that I want to use. So we don't have to make that decision right away at this point. But if you already know that you wanted to inflammation, this is the time to apply that it's a nice shot of getting served at the boat trip. So I also want to use this shot and I think this also looks better in 50 percent slow motion when scrubbing it real quick. I already see that this is a bold shot, so I will not use this one then. Maybe this one super shaky. I don't like this one. This one prepping it real quick. As you can see, I put those files next to each other on the timeline, and that is making the video editing ready. We do that. So we already have a selection of all the files that we want to use. We already have a five and a feel of that foul. And we don't have to take a look at all these files over here. Again, if we're done checking them and selecting them right at the beginning. So that is what I will do now. But remember, and that is super important, is that it is super Raul. You have to make decisions really fast. You don't want to think five-minutes about that one. Sure. Do you want to use it yes or no? If you're in doubt, just put it on the timeline. If you, after all, don't use that shot, It's not a real problem because you delete it just from timeline and nothing ever happens. So I'm now going through all the clips, make a really quick selection. And then I will show you how the timeline looks when I'm done with that. So through the process, I'm also coming back once in a while to show you something. And at this point, I already saw like a nice transition. So I'm not making that transition now. But because I remember I had another shot that can fit perfectly together. I already put them together in the timeline. We're not changing the order of all the clips because we will do that in a later step. But these small things like, oh, I just, I just had a shot with the same movement. Let's put them together so I can see if that is something nice later on, but then they're together to be sure. And after that, we're just moving on. Hi guys. For you. It was really fast for me. It was like 20 minutes of a scrubbing through all the footage and selecting them. And if you do that, then my timeline looks something like this. Now it is super simple, it is super boring, but there are now a lot of clips just behind each other on the timeline. This is all the footage that I want to use in my video. So in this episode, we saw every clip we made. We made quick decisions on which clips we want to use and which part of the clips we want to use. We made a selection of everything we want to use in our end results. So that means that in the next episode, we're going to work with this selection. We're going to build up our story and we're going to create a little bit more of the video. So that's why I will see you in the next episode. Bye. 5. Build up your story - step3: Build up your story. Hi guys. Welcome back. Welcome back to step number 3. And in this episode we're going to build up our story. We have different random clips in chronological order, right behind each other. We're going to change the order of two clips to build up our story. But how should story be build up? That's what we're gonna do inside of this episode. Welcome. So, okay, this is where we left off with our random Clips tab we're going to use in our video. A video always has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Even with a video like this, The story is super important. First, we have to decide which story you want to tell. And with this video, it's super simple because it was about right? So what do we want to tell? We want to tell, Hey, this is the boat we went on. This is how it was, that this was how it looked at. This is what we did and then we analyze it with a sunset. So that's the story we want to sell. So to make that story, we are first going through all the footage again, and then we can already pick some videos out that we want in the beginning. So for this video, what is a nice beginning to start with? I think it's important to start with the boat ride like which both are we on. And so for that, we have a couple of more shots that are giving away where we are. So before we going into like everything that happened on the boat, we want to start the video with a global impression of the boat. This one and this one. I can really quickly scroll between these videos because I already saw them. It gives me a good impression on what kind of videos I shot again to decide how I want the order of the clips. So over here you see already that the Sunset was moving him. And so of course the sunset is at the end of the video on and don't want to have the sunset at the beginning of the video. So for me that means that everything behind this V0 is a sunset. So everything over here will be at the end of the video. So with these clips, we're going to build up the beginning. So we already had some global shots. Then we're looking again through the footage. I see three things happening. The first one is like close-ups of the boat, and then we see people, people working there, people having a fun time, things like that. So I think that, that is a good way to build up the story. That is, this is the big boat we're on. Here are some close-ups of the boat and this is what we were doing there. And these people were on the boat and these people were doing this and that and this and that. So here we had the global shots, then we're going into the close-ups. So these are already three different parts of the story of the video. So we have the global beginning, then the close-ups of the boat, then the people having fun over there and working there, and then the sunset. Okay, so now we're going into these parts and we're deciding how we want the order of that. So then we have to first four clips, then we go to the second part and we do the exact same thing. So a good transition from the sailing boat over here to the close-ups is also that we're sailing over here. And then you can have a closer look at the boat. So then we do some nice sailing be rolls like this one, and then maybe this one. At this point, I hope it's clear why I decided to split them up in different parts. And then I'm going deeper into these parts and try to decide which order nicely fits the story. So we're not looking at the length of the clip. We're not looking at how we're going to use this clip, but we're just deciding the order. I will also do that with the rest of this video and then I'll come back to you. Hi guys, it's me again. And that can only mean one thing. We're done with deciding which order we want the last part. So at this point, if we're taking all the different parts that we looked at today and we put them next to each other so there are no gaps anymore between these parts. Then, to be honest, we already have a video without any music and things that, that all comes later. But we already decided how the story of our video will be. We decided which clips we wanted to use. We did that in the last part. And we decided how we want to use those clips and not with the effects, but with the most important thing, the order, the story, we build up our story now. But another good way to build up the story is based on locations. You do that most often with travel videos. For example, the summer I went to Croatia and there are shown a lot of drone footage in like two weeks, but on, of course, different locations. And then of course, the first thing you do is finding all the drone shots and the normal camera shots on one location and then put that together and then find out in which order you want to footage of that location and then try to stick all the locations to each other and then you don't have to have all the different locations in a chronological order, but all the footage on one location have to be together. And in the next episode, we're bringing these videos to live. We're creating the five, we creating how we want to have our video. So that is super nice. They can only mean one thing and that is that I will see you in the next episode. Bye. 6. The vibe is everything - step4: Divide the 5. Is everything. Welcome to a new episode. Welcome to step number 4. In this video, we're creating the vibe based on music. But what do I mean with that? How can we create a vibe? And do we have to know the Viper creating before we shooting, or can we do it in the post-production like we're doing right now? What are the options? Let's talk about that. So what do we mean with creating the vibe? With creating the vibe, I'm mean, we're putting a mood or a feeling on the video. And the most important thing to create that file to the fewer of your video is by putting music underneath it. What kind of 5s are there? The best way to show you that is just to give you some examples. The two most important used fives. And you have all kinds of variations on this, of course. But that is, first of all, a really slow relaxing vibe with a lot of longer shots, really relaxing and lay back video. The second thing you see often is a more fast-paced in video. A video like that is more energetic. The shots are way faster, maybe a little bit more close-ups, things like that. So can we make every video we want with every shot we got? Not really the best way to create the best five is to know divide that you're making your video in before you're shooting your video. Because for the first example, you need longer shots. Maybe you going to use a gimbal. Maybe you're not going to do a lot of movement and just standing still. Maybe you need a little bit more slow motion because for the second example, you need more shots, but the shots don't have to be that law. You need maybe more close-ups. You need maybe more movement in your shot to make it more energetic. But there are a lot of times when you just shot some nice food, it's that you want to edit together. And that is also why discourse is created with these nine steps and y. In this step, we're going to pick the vibe and search a song for that five because the song is super important for the file type you want to create. So that is why we're going to do right now. If you're a person, smart person that downloaded the example files in the beginning of this class, then you find a folder called audio in those exemple files. If you're not already download the example files, but you still want to do it. You still can do it underneath the TAP projects and resources, but then you have a folder called audio. And in that folder, there is a folder called music. And in that folder music, there are four songs are already selected for you. So let's listen to those four songs and let's find out which five goes together with which song. First one episode with the super clear beat. Let's kind of fast spacing's not like a really slow song. So the second 1, second 1, also kind of happy, but we're a slower and maybe a little bit romantic. This is also a slower song, also with a guitar but with a little bit more beat. This kind of in-between, slow and fast. Okay, last one. I would call this a more fast-paced saw with more. So you can choose now one song from these four songs. These four songs are all copyright-free song's. Copyright free songs are super important. Because when you're not using a copyright free song, you have a chance that if you made a video, you put it online that you get sued for using a song without paying for it. So these four songs are all from a site called YouTube audio library. Youtube audio library where you can find a lot of songs that you can use in your YouTube videos. So that is a super good option to find copyright-free songs. But there are two other favorites of mine where you can find copyright-free music. And that is the first one is Epidemic Sound. And Epidemic Sound is super good for creators because you can link your YouTube channel where you can link your Instagram and then use all those songs for kind of cheap on your social media. And the other one is artless. And artless is more for the filmmaker, that's more for people that are doing a lot of client work because then you pay one monthly price and you can use all the songs that are here in your client were, but these two options are paid and YouTube audio library is free. So that's why those four songs you've got in the example files are from here. But on all of those three sides, you can search for music on mood, mood, and five, kind of the same thing. So over here, you can search songs on, for example, the mood happy or romantic or inspirational. Inspirational is of course, little bit slower than happy. So in that way you can find the perfect song for your video, and especially for the five that you want to create. But for now we're going to use one of the songs I gave you so you can edit together with me. And the song that I'm going to use is the first one. And a good tip to search for Sean is to import them all inside of Adobe Premiere Pro. Because then you can look at the songs one by one, and you can also see the audio wave lines. So you can see that over here there are some, there are some points where the trope of the music is kicking in. And that are perfect points to cut the music and stick them together to make it shorter or longer. And that is also one of the reasons I like this first song because of a hair do you can make a cut over here? You can probably make a cut. I'm not sure about that. The most important reason I use this song is because it gives me that Caribbeans five, that furcation five. And I think that's super important and there is a nice clear beat. I can edit on. Editing on a bead is something we're going to discuss in a later episode. But that is why I'm using this song. But make your own decision on which one you want to use and which file you want to create. That is what we did in this episode. In the next episode, we're going to bring our footage to live by creating the beginning. We're going to start with editing the video. And at that point we're just a couple of steps away from finishing a coup be raw sequence. So I will see you. 7. Hook them by building up your beginning - step5: Hook them by making the beginning. What do I mean with that and what is hooking people? How should the beginning b? We're all going to answer that in this episode. Welcome to this new episode and welcome to step number five of the nine steps of creating a bureau sequence. It seems so simple. Start at the beginning, but we started the beginning for the music. So let's have a look. We already know what our beginning will be and that is this video that you see over here. Of course, we can make a little change about that, but mostly this is the order we will be working in. So let's these clips on the side and just start with the beginning. And then we're taking a look at the music. We start with beginning to see how much room we need with the introduction shot. So to decide that we're taking a good listen to the music. And at this point you can hear the rhythm of the music. And it's always nice to have a beginning with Dido and then a drop. And then to start the video on a drop, on a single, on a special beat in the music. So if we listen to the song, you can see that, of course the beads are on these four points, but then you have this first part, another 434. And then after eight seconds, then there is another thing happening in new rhythm. And I think that's the perfect way to really start the video. So we're going to use this first part, these first four beat hits to create the beginning of our video. So that means that our next shot, and that's this one, start at this beat drop. You can also set a marker by hitting the M. So we always know that we have until this beat drop to create our beginning. How much room then do we have inside of the music? That is, this whole part that already looks like a good beginning, but I think it's way too long. And because these four beat drops are repeating two times, we can also start our video over here. So if we make a cut over here, then we can also track this closer. And then it starts like this. And that is kind of nice. So it's short for second beginning with that one nice shot. This is just taking a look. How do I start a video on how much room do I need for my beginning? In this case, it's super simple because it's just one shot and this is already the beginning of the video, but maybe you need more room. You need 456 shots to create that beginning with the title. And at that point you have to know when can I start editing the real video? For example, one video I talked about earlier I made in Croatia. There I had like four different shots with four different kinds of titles to build up that beginning. That is also a longer video, but it's still super clear when the real video starts. And that will look something like this. Another video that I shot in my Yorker in Spain is something different because that is a really fast spacing video. So the beginning is super, superfast, a little bit of chaos. And then after like just a couple of seconds, it switches immediately to a super calm Dido. Hooking people in the beginning is to grab their attention, is to grab their attention from the starts and they're excited to watch the rest of the video. But it doesn't have to be hard. It's just a simple feeling that you are creating. So in the next video, we're going to build up our video like a beautiful symphony. And what I mean with that is we're going to edit the video on the music, on the beat of the music. So it feels like super smooth and complete from the beginning to the end. So I will see you there. Bye. 8. Make your video like a beautiful symphony - step6: We're going to make our video like a beautiful symphony. And what I mean with that is that a symphony is perfectly paste from the beginning to the end. It's like surfing on the waves. Everything fits on to the music. And that is what we're creating this new episode in step number six. And just this episode is longer than the rest of the episodes. But it has a very important reason because this step is the most important step of demo. Because in this step you will bring your video to live. So don't skip it and let's start. So because we already did a lot of work, It's not very hard to do this episode. If you do this too early, then it is kind of fart. We have our music and that music excess of beats. So if I would lay a video on every single finger snap and you can create a really smooth the ER that looks already really nice. So at this point we're taking our footage and we're putting that next to each other. What I always do, and that's also why a lot of people ask me questions when they see my timeline is I put the footage on top of each other. And that is because we already chose like the good part of the video, so that length of the video, but we're not going to use the whole video. But if we cut every video like really short, not sure anymore which part of the failure was the best one. So if I stack them on top of each other, so we have this. Then I know that I can use this whole clip and I can make the timing for this video perfect. And underneath the new video is still the OLC video. So if that's something I would not do and I will put everything behind each other, then there's a problem when I think on this video needs to be two frames to the right. I have to move this video, have to make this video longer. And then I also have to take a look at the end of this video because there's probably another video I have to change. So if you make one little change, everything behind that change. It's also not fitting the music as good anymore. But if I put everything on top of each other, I can just change this one video. But this video and this video, the timing of debt is going to be the same. Of course you can't do this forever. So once in a while you have to start over from the beginning because otherwise you get way too many layers. But I think four or five layer on top of each other is easy to work with. So at this point we can count the beat. And we can also do it even faster, and then you get this. So in theory, it doesn't matter how fast you make your video, as long as the new cuts, the new videos fit on the music. With that in mind, you can take a look at, okay, which videos do I want to have longer, and which videos to want to have shorter? Less important thing is that in the music, there are different parts where there is starting a new rhythm. That's also what we made our beginning on. So it's nice to have in those rhythm transitions a new part of the video beginning. So it's super nice and I already know I want to do this to have in the first part all the footage that you shot during the day. And then in the last part where the pacing changes, where the rhythm changes, it also changes from the day shots to the sunset shots. So that is something to think about while editing this video. I'm going to do that now and I will show you in a second what I did and why I did it. Hi guys, I'm back. And what I did is the first 20 seconds of the video. So that means that I did the global shots of the boat and all the kind of close-up shots. And now we're going to the middle where we where we see all these other people. It is now just playing with the footage. It's just listening to the bead and putting those videos on the B. And at this point you see that what you had in mind sometimes not really work like. For example, these two shots didn't work together as a transition that I thought of. And you see also, I'm stacking some things here and there. And that is because I'm playing all the time with the pacing of the video. What I didn't change, what I didn't touch it was the the big parts of the video. And what I'm doing now is I made a role montage of t beginning that will look something like this now. So, and you also see that this, that this beginning part ends when the rhythm of the music changes, and that is what annuity beginning. So that means that I had to fit everything I wanted to use from here to here. And then you look at basing, how long do I want to have a shot for me that's just like a puzzle to fit everything onto the music. So now we're going into a, another rhythm of the music. So what I actually want to do is I want to delete this middle part. I want to fit this whole video middle part on here, and then I want to fit the end on here. But now, first, I'm going to the middle part. I will make a montage of these video clips over this music. So I will see you again if I made the middle part leg. Beautiful symphony. Ladies and gentleman, this is the middle part in the time-lapse. You saw me do a lot of cutting the music, especially because we had a lot of footage for the middle part. And it was super easy to put all that footage together on the beat. But then it was super boring. So I made it a little bit faster, but then it was not fitting really good in-between the part of the bonded. So I had to cut out one video. So this is now the middle part. And then it goes to the end. So like I said, I cut a lot of music away. So we have a small middle part, but the middle part in the beginning are now super smooth together. So now we're going to the end parts, and the end part of the music is super long, so that can be much shorter. So I also have to make cuts in the music. Again. Now we're creating the ending in the same way, listening to the music, putting them on different beads, adjusting the length, looking at the pacing and fitting the videos onto the music. So I will see you again if I'm done with that. So I was editing the end and that is really fast basing as you can see, I already did a effect, added a speed ramp because I knew this was fairly long, but I wanted to use the whole shot. That's normally in effect we're doing in the next episode. So keep that in mind. That's a little bit of cheating. But then I figured out, Okay, I'm here now. I still have these a five shots and know these last two are very calming and it's towards the end. But I still have this whole music piece left to end the video. And the ending of a song is always nice. You always want to use the ending. So then I listened to the song, what part can I make cuts to make it shorter? And then I figured out maybe, and I'm going to figure this out with you together. I can delete this, everything of this, and I can use only this end, but I still need the transition of that first part. But then maybe I can stick this to each other and we get this. That works perfectly for a king. Perfectly so a little bit of a transition. Amazing. So now we know where to end. So I will see you again when I'm done. Hi guys. Welcome back. I succeeded. It worked. I put it everything at the end after the sunset underneath this last music part. So these last three shots are visible super long, so it ends with a cone endings. So Yeah, I know there was a long episode, but it's the most important episode because with this episode, you decide how the video will be, what basing the video will be. If you're curious, how long I worked in real life on this episode, that is one hour, 12 minutes and five seconds already. And now it's nice to see how this video is built up. We have the first part, also called the beginning. So we make that mango, for example, we have this of course, which is the introduction. Then we're going to the middle part, which is short, more fast pacing, but really clear, that's this part. And then we're coming into the ending, which is this part. We make that another color so you can really see how this video is built up. We have a different part of the song for the first part, different part of the song for the middle, and a different part of the song for the ending. So this is how this video is built up and then this is what we have right now. This is the rockets. Today. We're going to do. So from all these videos we collected, we made this 51 second video, and it's not done yet, but this is bringing the footage to live. We decided to pacing, we decided the length, and now we can play with slow motion, speed ramping, transitions and things like that, and we will do that in the next episode. So to really see this video finished, I will meet you in the next episode. 9. What kind of effects and transitions fit your video? - step7: It's time to put some magic on it. It's time to see what kind of effects and transitions fit your video. Welcome back to step number 7, where we look at the effects and transitions and other things so we can spice up our video. So you give the wow factor to your video instead of looks. Okay, what kind of things can we do with our video? That's what we're going to look at in this episode. So until this point we did already a lot of work. We looked at all our footage. We selected the clip we wanted, we selected the part of the clip. We wanted. We made sure that we build up a beginning, a middle, and the end. We changed the order of two clips with decided to five. We wanted, we search for some music, found some music, and then edited the video clips onto the music. But now it's stamped to spice up the video a little bit. And if I'm talking about spicing the video off, I'm mean things like transitions. So how do you go from one clip to the other or some speed ramping. Also a cool effect that I use a lot or maybe zoom in or maybe some motion tracking for the text in the beginning, for example, with all those things, you make your video from a okay, good looking video to a creative video. So let's dive into Premiere again and see what things we can put on our video to do all of that. I always start just at the beginning and then I go through every clip. And if I think this is a boring clip or we can do something else with it or it was pure ramping up. I immediately do it. So if we take a close look at the beginning than I already talked about booting texts over our beginning shot. Of course, this is a workflow tutorial and not a Premier Pro tutorial. So I will not do every effect with you together, but I will of course, show you all the things I will do on this video. So through the whole process, I already thought about what I wanted to put here. So I will make something creative and then I'll see you again. We're back and I made a beginning a boot them, very simple in the middle. So then we're moving on and ride away. I saw something I want to do and that is a speed ramping on this first clip. Because listen to the shift in the music. It is. That's a natural sound effect that's perfect for a speed ramp. Also, my best friend when shooting handle this, the Warp Stabilizer because the footage was a little bit shaky. So if I put some small warped stabilizer of 10 percent is another thing. And that's it that said so we get this. Then this is like a very simple boring shots or maybe we can do a really simple zoom in. We can also do the same zoom in on hair that is a little shaky. That's better. As you can see, I do this kind of fast. I'm not spending hours and hours on discussing what I want. This is also not in slow motion 50 percent because this is shut in 60 FPS. And I see again why it's nice to have some more room behind the shot I'm working on. Yeah, so we have a bend down and then I could do a swift transition down next to this shot. Okay. So that was a little look inside of the kitchen until here you see that I make very faster sessions, but then I will look at this video and another 20 times to see if I can do some more or maybe it's too much and I will put something down. Because maybe, maybe this zoom in a little bit too much and I will make it less zoom in. So I will do that over and over again. I will scrub back, look at it again and then think about new effects. I can put it up, so I will do some effects on the rest of the video now and then I will see you again. It's me again. I will put my apples. I had those in for a better understanding of the music because also a lot of effects are based on the music. So I already talked about the intro shot. I talked about this speed ramp, and now I will go through all the other things I did. So just going through this, um, some things I put it warp stabilizer on. I will mention the shots I did it on, but remember always warped stabilizer. Is there. To make a shot a little bit better not to fix a shot. If a shot is not usable without Warp Stabilizer, you should definitely never use Warp Stabilizer to fix things because then you definitely will see that there are warped stabilizer on that shot. Okay. The next one, I did a zoom in as you saw. I did not change the zoom in. I think it's kind of nice like this. And also this one. It's kind of a clean shot with little bit of zoom in because then it's a more natural transition between this one and this one. So then this one and the translation. And that's why you saw this shot behind each other with that band before? Because in my head this transition was already applied. It's a half of a slide down because I already bent the camera down in the first shot. Also transitions is something you should be careful with, because if you put too many transitions in your video, it will look very cheap. But this, I think, is a nice transition in the middle of the video. So then the next thing I did was I put a little bit speed ramp on here. And that is also because of the music. It's like plan. So I really liked that. So then over here D shows where all wear more fast basing. So I did not do any crazy effects on that part. I think only here. This is a nice one because this was first a normal shot that went all the way through the end. But over here there's a really noticeable click in the music. So I wanted to do something with that. So then I refers to the speed on the click in the music. Then this is all normal things. And also in the last part, this speed ramping I already did in the last episode. And then the last part is without any grazie effects. Then this last shot, I put on a click, the last click before the music ended, and also put it a really subtle texts on this screen is just a small little shout out. The smaller you put things in your video, the more lean and the more luxurious it looks dead were all the effects. I put it in this video or the video, visual effects. I put it in this video. And that's definitely something I'm doing at the end because then I can watch the whole video over and over again and I can find out which affects I want to put in the video. And the nine steps plan means that there are still two more steps to go. The next step we're looking at sound effects. We already worked with music and with the small little changes in the music. But there's much more to put on. Definitely inferior like that. I mean, for example, we're on a boat on the water. What do you think? What sound effect I will use in the next episode to know if you're right, I will see you in the next episode. Bye. 10. The right usage of sound effects in professional videos - step8: Derived usage of sound effects, almost done, guys. Step number eight, step number eight, and also step number nine is not something you can forget. It's super-important. It gives you a video extra dimension sound effects. So keep focus for a couple of more minutes because this also makes your video a lot more professional. Let's go. So I've put my apples in for a second so I can hear the sound effects and I'm searching for, okay, how are we going to decide which sound effects you need? First of all, the sound effects that we need, our natural sound effects. Effects that you would also hear when you record really clear audio of that moment. That means that it's not like animated sound effects in animation movies like this. It would be really weird, not professional, but they're super professional sound effects. So professional that people don't even realize that they are fake. That's what we want to achieve. So how should you start collecting those sound effects? To start with that, uh, you need a place to get sound effects from I told you before about Epidemic sound. That's where I get all my sound effects from. We also have, again, artless. They also have a lot of sound effects. Those are paid platforms. What you can do to get sound effects for free is go to YouTube or go to Google. But then you have to search for no copyright sounds. Because otherwise, again, you have copyrighted sound effects and that can be a problem in the future. But for me, it's super easy to have these platforms because we have Search button and I can search here, for example, water drop. And when I do that, I don't want music, but my one son effects and a 0.5 of different sound effects I can choose from. So how do you know with China effects, you have to look for that. It's just, you're watching the video and at the same time, you think about the sound that you should hear at the moment. Most of the time, I use one or two sun effects over the whole video. Definitely when a video is shot in one location. And at this point, that one location is in this boat. So the two big sun effects that I want to use in the whole video are definitely water and wind. So let's find those sound effects. So what you have to do is you have to keep in mind when you're listening to the sounds, what you want. So for example, I searched for waves against both, then I get this. But that is not a real poll, It's a super small boat that, that's not what I want. So we're looking just further on this one. There's also some background sounds, so I think this one is nice. Then again, I want wind noise. So wind, so I find the windstorm, and then I have two big sound effects that I can use throughout the whole video. So minus five decibels is nice to bring down the music a bit so we can better work with the sound effects. Sound effects are more clear, but the music is still the main source. You see it, it's still super loud. So then we can bring our sound effects. The first one, sound effects are always when you use it in this way, too loud. So you always have to put them down, okay, at this point, minus 15 is nice for the beginning because in the beginning the water can be louder, but when the video starts, so over here, the water should be way less loud. So then we go to minus 20, maybe minus 22. And that's nice. Now it's, now it's a background noise. And we can keep that and did a whole video because everything is shot on that boat. So what I always do is I into constant power transitions in between two cuts off the music that's kind of OK because normally you would use the stopwatch over here when you're working with volume transitions. Okay, Then this is nice, but we're already looking at these parts because hearing music gets louder and hear the music gets even more allowed. So this can be a transition of very hair. Then we can go to minus 19. And then over here the music is even larger, so we can maybe go to minus 10, and then we have one big sound effect and we can do the same with the windstorm. Of course, to windstorm has to be softer than waves, but it has to be subtle. Otherwise it's super cheap and fake. Okay, so as you can see, I had two big sun affects that I've put over the whole video. And it really works. It starts like kind of loud. The camera angles also load to the water, so that's also kind of nice. But then during the video It's subtle on the background. That's really nice. Then we have a limited layers underneath each other to work on sound effects. I'm going to be honest with you, you can do this as crazy as you want over here. There's an example of a timeline that is. On a really short video, but with a lot of sun effect to everything that's happening over there. It's still super clean, but it's also kind of crazy looking. I'm gonna be honest with you that this video is not a video where he should use a lot of sound effects. It's not super exciting to have a lot of sound effects. The music is kind of very upbeat. So that's also a reason why shouldn't use a lot of sound effects. But I will definitely watch the video now. And I will take a close look. And I will imagine what kind of sound would fit underneath that part of the video. Of course, transitions are always a good timing to put some sound effects underneath it. So that is a riser like ofcourse, the saxophonist, this is probably also a sound you can find easily on other platforms. And the thing with these sounds is that you should fade them in because otherwise, out of nowhere, there is a sex finished playing, but you can do that before it is even visible what is going on and after the clip is already done. So at this point you know what I'm doing? So I'm going to find on my own some other sound effects and I will show you which one I found and how I use them. Later. I guys, we're back and there are a couple of things I added. So for example, first I found a real camera and sound effects. So that was a really strong wave sound effect. But I've put it that underneath this shot where it's like really clear that it's about water. So that's some extra, extra water sound effects. Then of course it is a transition, this one, and then this one came for this, I wanted that change sound effect. So I found two sound effects. One is this one, and the other one is this one. So I added them together. And it's not like a super heavy chain sound effect. It's still sounds kind of nice when it is a little bit soft. So then it sounds something like this. So you fade it in, always faded in them. For this Bart, I did not want to use sound effects. It was not like super-special. There was not like really something I was able to put sound effects aren't. But there was again, a saxophonist. So I was searching for another side effect of a saxophonist which was like really nice. But then I remembered, wait a second, maybe the audio of the video itself is kind of nice. So a search for that. And for this video, it was not really nice, but for this video it was kind of nice. So I was like, Oh, why not use that again? Then I search for a flapping sale. I was not able to find it on the platforms, so I searched for it on YouTube and I found a pirate shale flapping, the wind sound effect. And I found that for free. And that sounds something like this. So I was like, Oh, that's kind of nice at definitely want to use that. And then to end it, we have, of course, this video with the, again, the waves slapping to the side of the boat. So for dead, I use the same sound effect as it did in the beginning. And that's just did for the sound effects that I used in this video, some subtle but extra sound effects. So now we will watch it again without any sound effects. And we will watch it with the couple of sound effects that we add it. And then you can really clearly hear that difference. Hello. So with some subtle changes, you could spend hours and hours and hours and sound effects. You can make it as crazy as you want, as long as you keep it subtle. And that is also the case with the next episode we're going to do because then we're going to look at colors, color grading, and color correcting. What are we going to do and what are we adding on this video? So I will see you in the next episode. Bye. 11. Make it pop with color, but not too much - step9: With color, but not too much. Hi guys and welcome back to this lesson. Welcome back to step number nine. And that means that this is the last step of our nine steps. And that means that after this video, we're ending the project and we're hitting Render, we're hitting export. But that doesn't mean that this step isn't important because in this step, we're going to take a look at color, color grading and color correction. What are we going to do and what should you definitely not do all things that are super-important. Color grading is most of the time thing. White people say, Well on which cameras that video films, because it looks really nice. So definitely important. Stop for good professional looking beer or sequence video. Let's go. So over here we got our video, and that video is already looking pretty nice, but now we're going to make it pop with color. How should we do that? You have different options to do color grading. Well, before a color grading, there is an other thing. You should take a look at it in depth, color correction. What is color correction? Color correction is making sure that every video clip in your video is looking kind of nice exposure wise. So at that point you're looking at how bright your videos are and is that good enough? For example, this first video was shot on a phone and that is on automatic settings, but all the other videos are short on manual exposure. And then you can already see, for example, that this video clip way darker than this 1. First we have to go through all the clips and we have to make sure that every clip is exposed the same way. So like I said, I saw this clip and this is the first clip we're working on. And for that I'm going to another window, another workspace, and that is the Color workspace. So in this workspace, you have a lot of room to focus only on color grading and color correction. So the color correction we're doing on the clip itself, so we're selecting the clip and now we can go to basic corrections and down we can, for example, play with the exposure, but also the contrast highlights shadows, whites and blacks and it rigors. Now what we did, We can hit this check mark on and off and then we know what the differences, so this is on, this is off. So if we now compare it with this one, and now this is more in the style of the other clips. So we're going through just watching the video or find the exposure is not off like a lot. Maybe this video because the water is not as bright as on the other videos. So we can bring up the exposure a little bit, but not too much otherwise, these pillows getting way too crazy of 80 highlights are extreme because of the sun in the water. So we can bring the highlights a little bit down. But this is something that is not easily fixed, even not imposed protection. So to make sure you don't have these situations, you can use filters while you're filming, like ND filters. The shots are of course darker, but that's also because it is sunset. And if you keep your exposure really bright in a sunset than the sunset is not good visible anymore. That's it. That's how we fixed our color correction. As you can see, really small changes. I just picked out the videos that are not the same exposed as the other ones. Now, we're going to do some color grading. And color grading is like putting a filter on your Instagram pictures. First of all, you should create a adjustment layer. I already did that, so I can grab this adjustment layer. I will make it as long as needed for the whole video. And then we're going to put the effect on the Adjustment Layer. So we're not putting the effect on averaging or clip, but on one single layer. Then everything underneath that adjustment layer, we'll have that filter. So you can make your own filter. You can make it as professional as you want, but we keep it simple, so I use lots and what is a lot? A lot is a filter you can select to put over your video. So for the color correction, we used a basic correction, but for the color grading, I used the Creative tab and I would dare you can find Luke and Luke are all the alerts that are imported in Adobe Premiere. Adobe Premier has some standard alerts on their own, but you can also see that I downloaded a lot of other alerts. Those are all packs that I downloaded free. Or you can also buy a lot of lead. So if you do that, you can select one. And if you selected one, you can go through all the alerts with these arrows. And if you think that's something I like, you can click on it and then you can see what's happening over here. So the intensity is always standard on 100%, but you can also make it less heavy. And that's something I recommend to always put it on 50 percent when scrolling through the lacZ that you want to choose. So this is looking kind of nice. Then you can toggle the creative checkmark to see what it does with your footage. But the more you are used to the lots that you Once bought or downloaded, the more you know, which will fit the five of your video. So for me, I know that there is a super, super famous called teal and orange. It is a look that is used by a lot of people, so it's a little bit overused. But there is one type of video that I like it on a lot and that is that beach vibe, that blue water beach file. Guess what we're making at this point. This is the first one, this is the second one. So we have this one and this one. I can set it on a one or a 100 percent to see the big difference. Yeah. The second one is way better, but the intensity is way too much. So I'll put it first on 50 and then our scrub through the footage. If that is to begin with the basic look I want to go for and I think that is here. You can see the big difference. Yeah, that's very nice. Okay. And now we can look at every single clip that is in the video to see if, if the look is also great on that specific clip and we already see a problem. I will put the sounds a little bit down so we have more room at the top layers because this first part, there's also text underneath the adjustment layer. So that means This text is now also graded. So if we don't want that, we have to put the text on top of the adjustment layer instead of underneath it. So for example, this orange is probably way more orange. Now with the filter, I kind of like, I think I will keep the text underneath this filter, but normally that's not something I want. So then I have to put the text on top of the adjustment layer. So now we're scrubbing through all our footage to see if this is on every clip still of where you want to go for. But let's say that for this clip, this filter is a little bit too extreme, maybe a little bit too soft, that's also possible. Then what I will do is I will take the scissors to, and I will just cut the adjustment layer on the same size as this clip. I will select the adjustment layer and I will put the intensity down. Also, a thing I can do is if there are multiple effects on the adjustment layer, I can go to Effect Controls and I can put down the opacity of the whole layer. So the effect is more subtle. In this case, I also liked it on these shots. I'm not doing that on this one. So there's also something else that can be a problem and that is that on some filters, the shadows change or the contrast changes. And then you can find a clip that is not fitting your filter. But instead of putting your filter down, you can bump up the brightness, for example, of the clip. So then you can adjust the clip. Wow, it's under the adjustment layer to see how that will look. But to be honest, I think this filter is looking nice over every clip off the video. And that is mostly because every clip is shot in the same situation. It's the same day, it's not a different five we're going for chose that filter and then it's nice. So a promise, I'm really honest with you. I thought I would have a lot more guts between some clips to put the filter software, but that isn't the case for this video. You can see in this video, I did that you see all kinds of different parts of the adjustment layer. Every single part of that adjustment layer is the opacity different. Because on some clips I wanted to filter software and on some clips I wanted to filter harder. But it's nice that on this video is looking good. And that means that we hit Command S, which is save the project. And then we hit comment M, which in Premiere stands for export, the video. And to be honest, that is step then what is the realization kicking in that this video is done? This video is done. So what did we make? I will show you that in the next episode, and I will also talk some more about everything we learned. But in this episode, we looked at colors. I showed you how I do color correction. Then I showed you how I do color grading. So that is super nice. But the most important thing is that the video is done now, I'm super excited to show you, so I will see you in the next episode. 12. The biggest lessons from this class!: What did we make? What did we learn, and how can you bring these lessons into your next project? Welcome to the last episode and congratulations on finishing this class. First of all, I hope that you enjoyed this class. And second of all, I hope you made something nice if you did, please send in your own entry. So I'm super curious what you guys made and how you use the nine step program to finish your own product. And then what did we make? And proudly presenting you my own end results from this class, the Cyprus cat American VIP sunset cruise video. Hi everyone. What did you think? Do you think it's nice? And do you see how all the steps came together to get this end result? I hope so because that's the biggest lesson from this course. It's not just one episode, it is all the episodes behind each other that gives you a grade nine step plan to finish your video. If you skip one of those steps, the video would not be as nice or will not be made as convenient as we did in this whole class. So if you liked this class, if you learned a lot from it, but also if you learn just a couple of tips from it that you can bring on in your next project. Then please leave a review that will help me, but definitely also new potential students. And then what a lot of people don't know is that if you liked me as a teacher, you can also follow me here on Skillshare to keep up-to-date with new classes that are put out here on Skillshare. And I'm planning to make some new big ones. So if you're interested in that, follow me here on Skillshare. And then with all that said, I wish you the best in your filmmaking career in the future. And I hope you bring at least a couple of steps from this class into your next projects, then I succeeded my goal. So thank you for following this class. I hope to see you in another class here on Skillshare or maybe somewhere else on the internet. Bye.
