E4.2 Life in Slow Quick Time: Compositing II: Masks and Mattes

TASK: Choose a piece of footage and an animation that you have produced for this course unit thus far. Combine elements from both of these into a single short film using basic compositing techniques. You are welcome to add other elements as well, such as still images and text, or to develop new footage to work with.
The purpose of this exercise is for you to explore the use of mattes and other compositing techniques. You will need to access software that has the capacity for this, such as Adobe Premier, Final Cut Pro, Adobe After Effects, Nuke or others. At the very least you should be able to access layering and opacity with basic masking in programs like iMovie. All editing software has the capacity for basic forms of compositing.
You may need to search for the appropriate tutorials online for your particular software. It is up to you how much you would like to use this exercise to learn new compositing skills but feel free to invent your own techniques, analogue or digital, to combine the two videos.
Upload your compositing experiment(s) on to your learning log as well as a short reflection highlighting what you have learned.
