When it came to the adding of special effects it was generally minor touches such as adjusting lighting and digitally removing stage equipment. The lighting was very easy as all I had to do was select the clip that I want to adjust and add a filter and adjusting the brightness there and then to the desired level.
When it came to mapping out the the visable equipment all I did was create the video filter "8 point mapping" which add 8 markers to the sellected film strip, with this I then pull in the corners where I don't want anything to be seen. This creates a pretty weird image so I use the adjustments "choke" and "feather" to smooth of the edges but where I've nipped and tucked the scene there is only a black bacground. To combat this I create a slug layer of pure white and place it underneath. with the choke and feather effects it creates a seemless look.
With the imagedry of the film complete all thats left to do is complete the sound design and apply it to the final production.
