Studio 33 - Week 3

This week has been a rather calm week as our main goal was to finish editing the wedding videos and make a rough cut. Four big folders, over five hundred videos and hours of footage later, we're finally done. After all that it feels as though we know who everyone is and were part of the wedding as well. We learnt some of the shortcuts of Premier Pro but more than anything we learnt that editing is not as easy as it might seem, keeping the deadlines, technical errors and not to forget the power cuts
in mind. Always Ctrl+S (save) kids, always.

But just as soon as your mind might start to drift, you could always recharge by playing a game or two of fooseball or badminton. With the start of the rainy season, it was no surprise that we got stuck in the office one day because of the thunder storms but more than panic or anxiety about how or when we'd reach home, everyone was just chilling and getting on with their work. This place really does feel like a home away from home, especially when you are met with pakodas on a stormy evening.

Studio 33 - Week 2

After a rather hectic and fun 1st week, we were really looking forward to the coming weeks. Kicked off the week by celebrating Pranab and Sanjana's birthday at Barbeque Nation with the entire staff and got to know everyone a little better.

Along with editing our small videos, we began editing a wedding video; sifting through hours of footage and making a rough cut really gave us a better idea of how you must always get extra footage as its hard to know what you can and cannot use while editing the video. This hands on experience with editing on Premier Pro was amazing.

The coolest thing this week was definitely working with the Ronin video stabilizer and understanding how it works. Working, behind the scene of Avinash and Ravi trying out different shots with the Ronin.

We also had to do some research on videos for medical apps and companies. To be honest, this is one of the best parts of working at such a place because you never learn about these small details of work in class.

Until next week,
