Hi! I am making a funeral movie for a gentleman that was a race car driver. I am not pro with Premiere Pro by any means; but, I get by. My question is for advice on how to present the information for each race. For example, I have the original program covers for each race which is cool. And I have all the stats for the races, meaning the car number, make, picture and even videos of some of the races, basically this:
6th Running Pomona Road Races
Bob Harris (the racer the movie is for)
#17 Jaguar, yellow
Entered into race: 30
Bob started 19th
Date of Race: 2/9/1958
etc...you get the idea
My question is how would you present all this in the racing section of the movie? I start it out with footage of a race car with the right sound dubbed in driving through a dark tunnel that comes out of the tunnel right into one of the videos I found with Bob standing there in the footage...how would you present each race? Just looking for ideas. Thank you very much.
I wouldn't put all the information for every race. I would drift a caption of one or two salient points over footage or a still. Lists are best put on paper, the video, I think, should just give a feel for the person.
