Since the workshops close on May 10th I need to make sure I manage my time well and really utilise the editing suite as much as possible. I’ve booked out a computer until that date, and Ana has spoken to me about a contingency plan just in case it takes me a little longer than that. I have a total of nine hours of footage so far, and essentially all of that footage needs to be viewed in case there are small things I need to fix. My plan over the next two weeks is to dedicate each day to working through 20 minutes of footage from each of the cameras (totalling an hour of footage each day). I believe the last 40 minutes of footage could be cut, as I set the shoot time to be a minimum of 3 hours but the pots seemed to disintegrate faster than the last time I filmed. I’ll start by looking through the last hour of footage to make sure that’s achievable – when I skimmed through it after I had done shooting it I didn’t notice any kind of change to the piles of remnants at the end but I wanted to make sure I had enough footage at the end so that the film doesn’t just end suddenly like the first time I shot with the C100.
The files are huge, totalling at almost 100GB in their raw format. When I come close to exporting the film as its final version I’ll need to make sure I can either leave it overnight or begin really early in the morning. I need to speak to Ana about the best option, as the final film could total as large as 40GB.
I’ll also need to look into buying a USB stick that’s a more suitable size or a fast SD card. Additionally, I might need to purchase my own media player, as currently the AV department aren’t able to accommodate all the requests they’ve had so far. Given that I’m not doing anything complicated like splitting audio, or anything other than just using the media player to play my media, buying my own wouldn’t cost too much:
I’ll find out sometime next week if this will be necessary so I’m keeping my eye on a few on Amazon in case there are any deals that come up.
