I have just finished shooting 10 interviews, with 3 cameras each. The interviews will be the main components in 2 seperate pieces with differing lengths and slant.
I want to be able to assemble my footage in the smartest way in order to edit efficiently.
Do I figure out which clips I want, cut them out into their own individual timelines then multicam that as best I can and reassemble the footage into the main piece?
Will I then still be able to make signifiant changes to the multicamed pieces if they've been moved to another timeline?
I had considered taking the A camera footage, editing that to where I want it for spoken content, then dropping in the other camera clips (also edited like the A footage) and multicaming from there.
One huge problem I wrestle with is that I am only editing and my producers could decide to make major changes both in content and mood based on the amount of milk in their coffee each morning. So, of course, I want as much flexibility as possible.
I feel like I'm asking for the moon. But I guess if I could just get an idea of how people normally assemble their multicam projects that would be helpful.
Thanks in advance.
Also, should I be color correcting beforehand or when all the footage is together on a final timeline and I can see it all compared to one another?

Do your multicam editing first on the whole clips. You can always pick and chose from that the parts you want to keep.
Do your audio sweetening.
Do your color correcting last.
Just saying thanks for your assistance, even though it's been 7 months, I appreciated the help when it was given.
