Getting the Right Shots

For this part of the lesson, close the iMovie project you created to import your clips. You're going to use material Christopher and Jennifer have shot to explore principles of shooting and editing.

The bits of video you need for movie editing are called coverage. You need a certain minimum of coverage to have video elements you can edit. There is also such a thing as too much coverage—dozens of shots from dozens of angles. It can be too much to manage and makes for hard-to-watch videos. Simple shooting not only makes sense, but it's also pretty much the most professional approach to a video project. In this lesson, you'll witness the minimum of necessary coverage and see how potent it is for editing.
