EDITING HELP NEEDED

My name is Ellen Smith and my daughter Rhiannon is a Girl Scout in Aurora.  Our local troop leader has volunteered me and another Girl Scout mom to create a video of the girls in the troop to be shown at the main annual Colorado Girl Scout Camp Event on May 30 in Estes Park.

Our project is filming the girls in groups of two in my vocal studio singing to a backing track, “Let It Go” from the Disney film “Frozen”. The part we need help with is editing because we are in over our heads with that part of the project. We didn’t realize when we accepted the responsibility that the video editing would be very much outside of our skill level.  We need help editing some of the individual scenes from each of the little videos and editing it into one seamless video with the backing track underneath.

I would be able to record the audio only while feeding the girls the original song through ear buds. But I don’t know how to create one main video from the little vids and match the track up underneath.

Any students interested in helping, please contact me at provocalcoach@q.com or 303-400-3657. Since I haven’t filmed the girl scouts yet, I would love some suggestions about how to film it for easier editing. OR get help with the filming.

We were given this video link below as a general guide to the type of project requested.

Smart Commute Metro North, a non-profit organization, works with communities and businesses to promote transportation options and improvements, foster economic vitality and enhance mobility in the metro north region.

We are interested in producing a few “shorts” that touch on the fun aspects of daily commuting. We envision this project to be a humorous (if not entirely silly) take on how people get to work/school. Here are a couple of ideas we have thought of thus far:

-       Therapist carpool driver

-       Bachelor Van  - (Bachelor/Bachelorette is driver, contestants are passengers)

-       Survivor – Commuter Series

-       The Amazing Commute – (who wins between car, bike, bus, etc.)

-       The Biggest Loser – Cycling edition (put several person on a bike and monitor weight loss for biggest loser)

This list is not at all exhaustive and could be completely revised based on the input of whichever student/group elects to engage this project. We would like to hear your creative ideas! Our ultimate goal with this series is to elevate the conversation of commuting and make people think about how they get where they’re going. Since our goal is to move people away from commuting alone, we won’t mind if you don’t have a positive outlook on Single Occupancy Vehicle’s (SOV) driving J

If you are interested in this project, please contact paul@smartcommutemetronorth.org for details. The budget for this project is negotiable, but please be mindful that as a small nonprofit, we will not have be able to afford massive expenditures to complete this work.

Thanks for your interest!
