The actress  throws her scarf  into the air and when it falls to the ground, an abstract sound is used to make the action appear more dramatic. I think this one was really hard to record. So in my opinion, the sound may be edited in this part. Using marker tool, because in this clip, It had a beautiful and sort background music. So I think, the editor tune down the background music and tune up the abstract sound

In the next clip, a woman who is walking in desert and we can clearly hear the sound of footsteps, I think the editor used the same technique to edit this footage. As the woman continues walking in the desert, she starts to disappear like sand being blown away by the wind. It probably used sound effect to edit this footage , cause we cannot record the sound which the woman disappear, the only way to do that is editing this layer of sound.屏幕快照 2015-06-09 下午6.01.13 屏幕快照 2015-06-09 下午6.21.35

It then cuts to a mid shot of a woman who is being interviewed in this footage the editor use the non-sync sound until she starts type the keyboard. In here we can clearly hear the sound of typing keyboard and in this scene it also use mid shot to film this lady, so I think the people may use the boom to  close to the keyboard and the editor may also tune up the keyboard sound when s/he edit this part of sound.

Whilst interviewing this old lady, we can hear the sound of birds in the background, so it is possible  when the scene was shot, the birds had just landed on the trees, or may be the editor found some bird sound and made a layer of bird sound over the lady’s voice, the reason why the editor may have added the bird’s sound in here, could be to add a nature and laid back feel to the interview

The clicking sound of a camera in this scene, I am not this is good match to this footage, but in here, I think it is easy to edit this part of footage.

The audio of the two women reading the same book from these two different scenes are layered together nicely. And in this footage, the editor also added background music that hints the audience that something bad is about to happen.

It cuts to the close shot, and it typically focus on this lady’s hand, so the boom holder may get very closer to record the paper sound and the sound of lady hitting on the table.屏幕快照 2015-06-09 下午7.19.40

We can hear the tiny bit of shaver sound when the guy who trim the hair of someone else. I think that it may record the shaver sound clearly first, and then the editor added the background music in the footage, s/he may tune down the shaver’s sound and tune up the background music.

his scene was shot by using lapel mic (maybe) we can clear hear this lady sound in this part. Or it probably record this woman’s sound twice time and then manipulate the audio together seamlessly.

The coin sound in this footage, I think it is easy one to edit these coin sound in the footages, it hard to record those sound when shooting this scene, but it is easy to added those sound in the footage.

We can hear a lot of detail sounds in next footage, the sound of drawer when people found something, and women light the cigarette sound. All of the sound could be record first and then added those sound in the editing room.

#7 Reflection on the course

I think Sound and Image is most interesting course rather than another courses in this semester.

In the beginning of this course, we learn how to figure out of the equipments, we learn how to work in a group to shot a short video. It was really fun, we learned how to use mixer and how to set up the camera, I get  more confident to deal with camera, but not in mixer, but I think I will borrow mixer from school , and trying to get familiar with it.

After this semester, I think I feel more confident and passion in the basic edit of footage, and I really have passion on editing. Because I really interested on edit footage. I like to change the original footage, and using my creative thinking to edit the film.

In this semester, I learn how to be a different crew role in a team work, and we alway swap our roles. Most of time, I be a camera man or to be a  people who need to setting up the light. The one thing I learn from this course is that I will analysis the footages when I watch the movie. I mean, as before, I just enjoy the movies, enjoying the 3D effect or something, but now I will think about how this footage to be shot, and how editor edit the sequence. I try to put myself in a  professional situation to analysis the film.  That’s awesome!

This course encourage me to film a movies in the future, I know it still take long time to finish this goal. But I feel happy, passion and feeling confident to do that. Making videos which can satisfy myself and others

I also want to get a working experience in our school, and I know one is call ‘RMITV’  my classmate she is working on that group, and it looks wonderful . I mean, you work with people who are loving and full of passion on doing this job. They are sharing the ideas, helping each other, and shooting a beautiful video.It’s wonderful. In the next semester, I will reply to get work on that place and earning working experiences from that.

I know I am not very good at to be a camera operator, I mean, at now, we need to copy or imitate other people’s shooting style, But actually, everyone has they own shooting style, For instance, everyone has they own style when they draw a picture. Even ten people draw a same sense, but they will have ten different painting works. I think that Shooting style is same as well.

For now, I will try the best to edit my documentary project. Using the technique I learn from this course to beautify my work.
