Week 3: 26 January - 1 February 2015


Basic filming and editing - Moderators  Alfonso, Hazel & Carol



  • During week 3 we will be visiting places in Second Life suitable for filming.  The bulk of the work in machinima, and in this session, will be the collection of the required shots to make a story. Participants can film for their own script, or to assemble footage compiled to create a story at the end of a project.



Filming steps 

1.  Set up

2.  Record

3.  Stop

4.  Set up at a different angle

5.  Record

6.  Stop 

Repeat this process until you have lots of footage from several different angles.


 Skills to master inside your editing program:

          1.  Importing media

                             2.  Building tracks

                             3.  Clipping / splitting footage

                             4.  Adding motion to stills:

                                           a.  Zooming and panning

                                           b.  Rotation

                            5.  Adding transitions

                            6.  Adding narration

                            7.  Adding a title and credits

                            8.  Adding music
