Now that filming for your Kickstarter masterpiece has wrapped
, you are ready for the fourth and final stage: post-production
. Much like Rocky IV, this stage can be the most challenging but also the most rewarding, as you see your hard work finally come alive on the screen.
If this is your first time editing video, get comfortable with the idea that the end result will not perfectly match the vision in your mind. Great editing can save bad video and turn good video into something amazing, but without the years of required experience your approach should be to string along the good bits you have rather than attempting to salvage the bad. Remember that your video’s true aim is to get people excited
for your Kickstarter project; done is better than perfect
and a true editor knows that their work could always be better.
