Raw Video Footage- Storyboard

Hey again! Over Thanksgiving break I began work on a video story on a hike to Rattlesnake Ledge in North Bend, WA. Here are two raw video clips from that day.

Shane Menzimer, my boyfriend, filmed this shot. The majority of shots are by me, but he filmed me once in a while to switch it up a little bit and add variety.

These are a few clips from the top of the hike, I want to cut them into small clips and mess around with them, so that they are not just long pans at the top.

Below you will see my storyboard with how I plan to edit my video:
