Seeing sound: Final cut

....we finished episode 1 of Cloud Girl.

We used Final Cut Pro to select parts of film and audio clips, combine film and audio clips, change the speed of film clips (to 50%) and divide clips with the 'blade' tool so we could modify them and make the whole thing more seamless.

For example, we cut out a couple of frames where our hands (or shadows of our hands) were visible, and duplicated frames where we felt there needed to be a pause.
We also learnt how to zoom in on a section, which helped us with a part of the film which jerked between two scenes as we moved the background too quickly.
Here's the final edit:

To finish the induction to Final Cut we were shown how to add text to make a title, here's the final film after I added the title:
