I’ve recently done some video editing, some at home and now some for work and think it might be one of my next projects/hobbies. Although at the moment I’m not full of ideas of what to shoot I’ve enjoyed the editing process and gives a whole new appreciation for what is done in TV and film. My first foray was the outtakes of captainchalupa.com – it’s a classic, see it while you can, I’m not renewing the URL in October (and I can only take credit for camera work on the short film, editing there was done by a pro). My second attempt (that made it through to a final cut) will sadly not be available to the general public, being a work project. I’m hoping to work on something a little more mainstream (well as mainstream as editing at home on a laptop then posting to the internet can be, let’s say something that can be viewed by those reading this blog).
I don’t believe I’ve ever used so many brackets/parentheses in one paragraph before. I’m sure that’s not very well respected in the literature world.
Right now I’m still at the point of wanting to run before I can walk, I can’t wait to get the first film festival nominee cut and out of the door. I have, however, the minor issue of learning how to properly use editing software, be it iMovie at home or Adobe Premiere Elements at work. If anyone uses any decent sites for either of those post up the links in the comments.
