Choose one (and only one) audiovisual video source to rework into a 1-minute piece (remix) using only cuts and fades. Edit the video and audio tracks together as one, in other words, retain the vertical relationships of your source video. You can use any software — premiere, final cut, imovie, avid, etc.

The goal of this project is two-fold:

  • get comfortable editing video and working in a non-linear editing program.
  • begin to think about the relationships between sound, image, and context. How do your decisions reframe / subvert / abstract the original source material? What is retained from the source video and what is lost?

If you are stuck, try starting a repetitive process and see where that gets you. The most exciting clips do not always make for the most exciting cut pieces. The opposite is often true, think carefully about tension and release, and the overall trajectory of the piece.

Upload the project to your video channel and send me the link using the email subject “Core Cuts”
