I apologise for the poor production of my latest forum video. I'll explain how they are produced.
After deciding on a project, I make the templates followed by the making of the item, stopping after each operation to take photographs. When completed, I sort through the photographs to decide which to use and which to discard. following this I add explanatory text after which each shot goes through Photoshop to adjust brightness, contrast, colour balance and sharpness. I then have each shot in turn on the screen and write a script, followed by recording an audio track for each shot. All this takes a great deal of time before I email all the files to Mike, who in turn sends them on to Rick for production of the video. On this occasion, for whatever reason, Rick appears to have simply slapped the files together with no attempt at editing, by which I mean inserting fades between shots, adjusting audio levels and length of time that each shot remains.
The lack of professionalism towards this video leads me to believe that I'm wasting my time.
