How to Edit Live Event Footage Quickly

While finishing up editing the last of the Ignite Guelph videos from the fall, I decided to record a tutorial on how the sequence was set up. In this video I explain how I normally set up for multicam video edits and, more importantly, how I go through and decide where to place the cuts during the speaker's presentation.

Even for live events, the edit should feel organic and seamless so that the viewer can be allowed to become immersed in the speaker's words. This is especially the case for the Ignite talks, where the speaker has only 5 minutes to talk about something they are very passionate about.

If you're interested in seeing more Ignite videos, I highly suggest you look through them on the Ignite Guelph and Ignite Waterloo channels.
