A primer on making the transition from Final Cut Pro to Adobe Premiere. This session will be led by Justin Schultz, Senior Editor, Digital Video Franchises. There are benefits to using Premiere over FCP, which include cost-savings on software licensing for your newsroom, ability to use Gannett-provided motion graphics templates, project collaborating/sharing, and more.
We will talk about the importance of video in everyday journalism, how to work with the VPC, how and what to shoot, different platforms esp. IG reels and TikTok. Featuring Jane Mo, producer of video franchises.
People unknown to you often tweet, email or text you videos from “news events.” But do you know if they are legit? Was the video from today or five years ago? Was the video doctored? How can we see when and where a video was first published? We’ll explore how with Watch Frame-by-Frame and Amnesty International’s YouTube Dataviewer.
WatchFramebyFrame.com http://www.watchframebyframe.com/watch/yt/Xb0P5t5NQWM Great for fact-checking videos. Paste URL into player and hit the arrow keys to look at each shot frame by frame. Watch for shadows out of place, etc. You also can watch frame by frame in YouTube by using the comma and period keys after pausing the video. Comma moves backward and period forward.
Exercise: Test both tools with this famous fake video of a bird trying to fly off with a kid. It was passed off as real and went viral. Watch the shadows of the bird and the kid for clues: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CE0Q904gtMI
