SPOTLIGHT on Creative Edits & Transitions

On Fridays, we share our favorite user-created videos that relate to a challenge we’ve set out the previous week. The challenge can be a theme, inspirational words, a prop or line to incorporate into your video, a story prompt, or a filmmaking concept to consider.


Last week, we asked you to show off your editing skills by getting creative with edits and transitions between clips. From extended cross fades to traveling across time & space via transitions, check out the excellent submissions in the gallery below!



For this week’s challenge, create a video that showcases the quality of light. What is the light like for you this season?

During the winter, the angle of the sun is lower in the sky, which gives the sunlight a soft quality and filters out a lot of the blues, making the light warmer in tone, especially at sunrise & sunset. The “Golden Hour” – when the quality of light is best (at dawn and dusk) – may also last longer  depending on how close you are to the north or south pole at the time of their winter, giving you more time to capture it. 

During the summer, there are more daylight hours to work with and the light tends to be blue and bright on clear days. The Golden Hours aren’t as long, but they’re stunning!

We’ll be highlighting Light Study videos on 2/6/15. Check out the guidelines below for info on how to participate.
