I tend to film in long sequences without much of a plan and rely on the edit… well that’s not strictly true, I do initially have sort of a plan, but it usually turns out that during the flight I get a bit distracted, what with all the controller bleeps, random warnings and middle aged men who want to chat, so I forget what the plan is. I usually just end up flying at every angle and distance I can get in as quickly as possible, whilst recording it all in one go. Later, after chopping them up into their different constituent bits in the editor (Powerdirector), I nearly always lose track of my shots, sometimes repeating them in my edit without realising until later or using the inferior shots because I’ve missed the better ones in all the clutter.
Can someone give me tips on how to organise them on a 14" laptop screen?
Is there a easy workflow sequence I could follow during editing?
