I feel that the video was successful in sharing the stories of two LGBT women living in Cheltenham. Considering it is a vast and important topic, I feel like a reasonable amount was covered in a short amount of time. I also think that visually it is more successful than the first video, and I managed to parallel the different clips by theme. I struggled to cut the video without it being too choppy but I think in the end it flowed well. I chose to use the song Bros by Wolf Alice in the background because it is relaxing and the vocals are not too distracting.
There were questions that I asked in the 90 second video that I think got interesting responses but I did not manage to fit them all into the final edit so I asked those again.
They both were asked some different questions so I think that it won’t be as easy to parallel the clips as I at first thought because I was considering having the questions as text over the videos but now I do not think that would work. I should be able to group the clips thematically though.
I asked them both
I feel like the white balance is a vast improvement on the first interview.
The memory card filled up whilst shooting so I changed over to another one, which is why the screenshots are on separate images. I intended to use natural lighting for this shoot but it was overcast so everything was underexposed and dull. I used lamps and warm lighting to try and make the video look cosy, which I think worked but the video subsequently came out pink.
The white balance was difficult to try and correct. I was going to include a cutaway of a candle (MVI_0689) but the lowkey lighting did not match the rest of the interview so I decided to cut it.
I’ve been struggling to cut the interviews again because a lot of the content was relevant and I could make two or three videos from the footage. The clips in which Ellie discusses her coming out story and also goes into depth about the LGBT+ community are quite long but very important, so I do not want to cut them even though they easily come to two minutes. to deal with this problem I have made list of what the clips are of and how long that they are so that I can decide what to cut out. The clips of Chloe’s are more concise and there are more of them. I also will probably rearrange the order of them, as I feel that it would be best to end on Chloe’s joke about the pros of being bisexual being “girls.”

It is not in English but is visually beautiful. There are English subtitles available on the video.
