Almost there! All you have to do now is edit the project, make sure that it flows smoothly and sounds good. This stage can take some time because it’s the detail and attention that you put into it which will pay off in the end. You want to allow others to see this “rough draft”, ask them for feedback of how it could be improved. The more people that you allow to critique your project the better it will become.
Now you want to start the fun part! You have a narrative and a storyboard so now its time to put it all together. Start with your storyboard and find the images or video that you want to use. Use search tools such as Google to locate still-frame imagery or video. You can also use images not located on the internet, but found in personal pictures and books (be sure to cite any images you use to give credit to those that captured them).
Here is where you want to go out and record any video that you might need as well. Using pictures is fairly easy as to there is not much editing needed to be done. But using video that you record is a lot more time consuming because there is more editing to be done. Don’t be deterred though! Using and creating videos is by far the most entertaining part!
You can find all kinds of media throughout the world wide web, but caution must be taken when doing so! Making your own media guarantee that you don’t have to worry about lawsuits and it is so much more fun than searching through countless images over the internet. Using videos, pictures, graphics and drawings make’s your story much more personal and adds to the viewer’s enjoyment.
