Video Editing: Blue Man Group.

Well, I haven’t done this in awhile. I guess this is one of the reasons why I went back to school! This week’s assignment for my Advanced Online Journalism class was to make sense of over an hour’s worth of footage of the Blue Man Group (shot by John Baynard, our award winning documentary filmmaker and professor), and package it into a two to three minute piece through editing. 

I haven’t edited video like this in a long time, so I was quite frustrated with this when I first sat down at the computer. I struggled for a few hours before it all started coming back to me and things began to flow. 

I’m pretty happy with how this came out for the first go around. Based on the footage I was given, there were a thousand ways I could have taken this piece. I decided to focus on the meaning of the performance and the significance of the “blue man,” according to those who created and act in the show.
