Hey guys, I tried something different with my personal footage from my recent trip to Vegas. I've decided to call it a Stredit.
A Stredit is a straight edit using all your clips in order you filmed them.
Official Rules for a video to be called a Stredit:
1. You must use every clip from your camera in some way (editing and trimming is allowed and encouraged)
2. Your clips must appear sequentially in the order you filmed them.
3. That's it!
I learned so much from this method of editing!
- It's cool to see my trip in order that it happened. It made me wish I took more footage, but at the same time, I was glad I didn't fill up my camera with footage I wouldn't want to include in my video.
- At first it was hard for me to obey the rule of using every clip from my camera, but finding the best parts of each clip was a fun challenge. I came away feeling that my experiences were worthy to be shared and seen.
- My time limitation was the length of the song I used. Editing to a time limit can be frustrating but can make for a better video.
I've started a Stredit Group. If you have any videos that you think belong or you think you want to see more Vimeo Stredits in the future, feel free to join and or add!
