The idea as simply to convey how exciting the YLC is for the youth that wants to recognize who they are, their potential, their purpose, what difference they can make and ultimately what a better life they can lead.
YLC usually runs for quite a number of days every year, one of those days was a Saturday which I picked to capture the magic of the live event. Like any other live event, it was exhausting as I was constantly on the go in order to capture the exciting moments and make sure I have enough material to go back and edit something incredible out of it. Capturing the sound during the interviews was a big challenge as in the background the caterers were getting ready to serve the refreshments. So the sound of the cutlery is overlapping with what the YLC volunteers are saying. But still, thanks to my H1 Zoom microphone, I was able to capture audible dialogue.
The bit where the big collage of interviews begin, that was a challenge to pace and place properly. I had to make sure what the volunteers are saying is actually a continuation of what the previous volunteer said.
The video conveys the energy, the rush and the fun elements which made YLC 2014 super exciting for the youth all over Pakistan. If there's something I would change, it's probably the interview collage.
I would definitely tweak it a little bit more and make it much more smoother, cleaner and shorter this time around.
If you shot some footage and need someone to edit the video, I would love to jump on baord and collaborate with you. Have a look at my other works to see my style and experience which I build over the years.
Let me know in the comments how you think I could have made this video much better and much more engaging?
I would really appreciate some constructive criticism in order to become a much better filmmaker and a much better storyteller.
