It took me around 8 hours to edit this video, 8 hours including the whole viewing and selection process for deciding which clips we wanted to include in the video. We didn’t use that many shots in this video, but boy was the selection process long… This is seriously the video I am most proud of!
I used my Canon Rebel t3i and 50mm f/1.8 most of the time (seriously one of the cheapest dslr videography setup). I believe all of the shots in this video was actually used with the 50mm. It’s a very cheap lens that I really do recommend including in your kit!
I didn’t do much editing in terms of color grading and effects, all I really did was turn a shot black and white using the effect “calculations (highly recommend)” in premiere. And slow-motion for most of the clips. No fancy color grading or contrast/brightness or filters whatsoever. Oh wait, actually I used a certain blending mode called “pin light” (I believe) for the last shot with the crowd and shot of Mehdi on top of each other. But that’s about it!
Comment below if you have any questions, or would like to give me compliments or critiques of the video!
I appreciate all kinds of feedback!
