ICYMI: this is my 2nd parade I produced in a row for BCOP-TV. The production took nearly 4 to 5 days, nearly 2 to 3 hours of raw media, about a couple hours to ingest, and I exported the video in real time. The secret to that will be in a future post.
My child puts their lego toys in a perfect row and slowly moves them and shoots them on a camera. Stereotypical mother that doesn’t get their kids’ autism – thankfully my mother isn’t one of ’em.
Regardless, all of this is extremely taxing which I am taking part of this week off, because all of this “live” production actually requires an editing application especially if you want effects and banners. No hobbyist has a Chyron Duet, a Grass Valley switcher and an audio board just laying around in their basement. I used Avid, you could use Premiere, Edius (for PC) or Apple’s FCPX (quality maybe less than say the other three.)
If you have 43 minutes (the actual running time without commercials or promos) enjoy it.
