Do you want to know how I filmed this Ford Fiesta ST150 at the North Staffs Customs Moat Hall Farm meet? Yes. Same here - Welcome to how I filmed this Fiesta ST150
Before I filmed this Ford Fiesta ST150
After I filmed on the North Staffs Customs club stand at Moat Hall Farm, A Ford Fiesta ST150 with gold accents caught my eyes. I recognised the Fiesta ST150 From Drive With Andy's YouTube channel.
How I filmed this Ford Fiesta ST150
I Said, "Hi Andy, I'm Joe. I commented on your Every Car I Have Owned Since Passing My Test Car History video." Andy said, "really. Where did you find my video?"
I replied, "I checked out a video from a post on the North Staffs Customs post, with you messaging me to check out your channel. So i did!"
Andy said, "I vaguely remember you commenting on the video. What car meets and events do you attend?" I replied, "I tend to photograph at modified car meets around Cheshire or if I get paid to shoot at a race track with the JSCC."
Andy replied, "Fantastic. I like to attend Ford shows, and car meets around Cheshire. Ford Elite and The Oval have supported my YouTube/social media channels". I Said, "Dito! I'll let you photograph and film the cars at the Moat Hall Farm meet".
The first scene I filmed of Andy's Fiesta ST150 was a front-three-quarter walkthrough. A few seconds later, I recorded a rear-three-quarter walkthrough of the Fiesta ST150.
Then I recorded a taillight detail scene of the Ford Fiesta ST150 for extra flavour in the film. Next, I filmed a clip of the Fiesta ST150's headlight as an eye-catching part of the video.
I needed to see more of the Fiesta ST150, so I videoed a front walkthrough. Tasty! Finally, I recorded a headlight scene showcasing the Fiesta ST150 and Fabia VRS.
How I Edited the film of the Ford Fiesta ST150
Firstly, I began by selecting the Ford Fiesta ST150 videos in my gimbal folder. I colour graded each clip and shortened each clip for stabilisation. Exciting. Next, I warp stabilised each clip for exporting into my stabilisation folder (rinse and repeat).
I re-imported the Fiesta S150 videos into my stabilisation folder and paced the scenes. I slowed the Ford scenes to 80% for a more cinematic perspective, other than the front and rear three-quarter walkthrough, which was 90%.
I need a relaxing song to suit the Fiesta ST150. So, I looked for a calming lo-fi track for a soundscape that suited the aesthetic of the Ford. After choosing the soundtrack, I imported the clip into Adobe Audition which I changed to the Parametric Equaliser.
Then, I increased the reverb to 2,500ms and changed the shift for a more atmospheric clip. Indeed. Next, I hard-limited the audio to -12db. Finally, I rendered the video and exported it to my YouTube folder.
What're your thoughts on YouTube? So, so. Same here - But it's always fascinating talking about social media platforms with other content creators - especially if they like cars.
