Hi Guys & Gals,
The weekend is upon us and it's time for a video project. I know it's been a while, but we have a very cool weekend project idea that we really like, and think you will too! We want you to get a little experimental with this one and use multiple video frames! Basically, make a video that has multiple clips playing at once within the same screen, kind of what picture-in-picture on TV looks like.
Maybe you have a bunch of footage from a recent vacation, a ton of b-roll clips to supplement an interview you did, or a series of videos from a night out on the town with your friends. Whatever it is, we want you to show us in a fun multi-frame style. We think you'll find that multi-frames allow your viewer to take in loads of information at once while keeping them engaged in the material and also allowing you to really pick and choose what to highlight vs. what to use as background.
Most editing programs are capable of layered editing like this, although we cannot give you a tutorial for your specific editing program, a quick Google search will help you find many tutorials and guides to get you moving.
A great example is this video Isenseven - TIMES, made by Vincent Urban. There are a ton more to check out in the Split Screen Stuff channel! Here's a fun video tour of our new office! We used Final Cut Pro to edit and experimented with a few different split screen techniques.
A few things:
Try to keep your video under 3 minutes and make sure to submit your video to the Weekend Project Group.
The video with the best integrated multiple frames will get a Plus account (for Basic users) or 25,000 HD Embeds (for Plus members). The runner-up gets an extra 1 GB of upload capacity (for Basic users) or 10,000 HD Embeds (for Plus members). Make sure you only submit videos made specifically for this weekend project!
Submissions are due on Tuesday (2/16) at 11:59PM (EST).
Have fun, and we really look forward to what you guys put together!
Hey everybody! This past weekend's project videos were some of the best I've seen. It was super hard to choose with such a great variety.
With that being said, we have some multi-framed winners! Ji Won Shin's 3-framed piece called Bittersweet Moments has put her in the runner-up spot and has won her an extra 25,000 HD embeds! Be sure to check it out!
Great job everyone! Have a good week.
