Chapter 3. Assembling Your Clips

Chapter 3. Assembling Your Clips

When creating a birthday or other similar video, I try to accomplish two things. First, I try to tell a story, with a beginning, middle, and end. This helps keep the viewer's attention. Second, I try to chronicle the event, primarily by making sure I include all key shots inherent to the occasion, like a shot of everyone singing “Happy Birthday,” and all key participants, typically family and important friends. Then I chop off the rest, aggressively and relentlessly, to keep the movie as short as possible. With Premiere Elements, you'll do part of this work in the Monitor window and part on the Timeline.
