If you want to put b-roll over your footage, when putting the footage in, you have to click the illipses and choose the icon with video over the other video, if you do this the b-roll will automatically be muted however you can change that if you want a little bit of natural sound. those some of the main tjings we learned and can really improve your video.
The interview produces the sound that tells your story, making it the most important element of your news package. In class, we learned ways o make a good interview. In your news package, you will put B-Roll video over most of your interview, so the video quality of your interview isn't that important. The sound however, is very important so you will want to get very close to your subject, to a point where it is almost uncomfortable, because then you will have full audio. when interviewing, you don't want to start your questions with what, or why, you want to start them all with tell me about... and last thing, at the end, you should always ask them if there is anything else they would like to add, so that they can elaborate on their own, without restriction of the question.
The sound in a video is at least as important in a news package, or any video really, as the actual video. In a news story, you need the sound to tell the story of what is going on in the video, and to establish the natural sound that is in the place where the video was shot. To get a full story with good sound, You need to get close to your interviewing subject and get loud, full sound. You also need to capture the natural sound of the area and add in a quiet amount to your interview to help establish the setting of where the interview is going on. Your final project should have clean, crisp sound that really helps your video, not hurt it.
When making a news package, you obviously will need a subject to base it on. You will need to come up with a subject to make your news story on. We learned about thinking of a topic and what you will need to make your news package. First, you will need an expert in, or someone related to the topic. You also need a supporting person who is not an expert in the topic however has interest in the topic. You will then need to contact them and arrange an interview on them to ask about the topic
