Editing Tricks for Amateur Vacation Video #25

India 1997:  Cochin

Thankfully there is no tape damage in this two minute clip.  Excerpted from the original 80-minute edit on VHS tape, the viewer is introduced to the beauty of Cochin, India.

The scenery is nice, with a little humor as we are surprised by the name of a neighborhood called "Jew Town".  Pleasant enough, but this is just a slideshow of unmotivated moving pictures.  I think we could do better if edited today, using some of our previously discussed editing tricks.

Lessons Learned:
You included this scene for a reason, make sure the viewer understands your motivation.

It needs to be part of a story.
