How to Make Your Video Look Timeless

Postby sidd finch » Fri May 18, 2018 10:36 am

I came across the article that had some pretty handy information regarding video creation. The "avoid props that age" section was insightful.

1. Stick to the fundamentals.

2. Keep cuts simple.

3. Use effective graphics.

4. Choose music to suit the production.

5. Avoid props that age.

I guess no one told George Lucas. :eek: The Original Star Wars trilogy used a clock wipe in each episode (and many other types of wipe transitions too). Didn't appear to affect the shelf life. ;)

The first clock wipe occurs about 8 seconds into the following clip:
