Editing Editors Edit

The kids were editing machines today.  We had a much better turn out than last time and some motivated film splicers!

Of course we weren't actually splicing film, we were using non-linear video editing software Adobe Premiere Elements to put together our newscasts.  We were also pulling in MP3s and Youtube videos and adding them into our projects.

One student even went so far as to make an original composition with Acoustica's Mixcraft software to add as a soundtrack to his video.  Impressive stuff.

The green screen got used to it's fullest potential as the students placed all kinds of ridiculous backgrounds behind their footage.

Looking forward to the finished product hopefully on Thursday!
