Good team effort to gather and log the footage- i came in late in the game, after filming the 3 interviews (sadly, even the fluorescent-hum, sloppy copy-cave one with Aaron), and did a rough cut of the first leg of the story Wed., and finished this morning. i’d say it took about 6 to 9 hours of solid work — not counting space-out time.
well this was sure a long time to edit. i’m surprised how easy the footage was to work with- i worked roughly off of an outline, but then the overall structure ended up making itself. maybe the storytelling skills from writing and photo are finally applying for me in video? let’s hope so. i wish we can do video this content rich every week (i can do without the all-night/early morn. editing sessions, though). it’s all about compromise -sometimes.
someone from MSNBC called the other day looking to obtain photos from the Lobo’s suspension article from last year, but those were courtesy photos. the photo editor(s) told them about the year before’s article, and i’m glad they did, because i did the photos for that.
so a week ago we sent them the photos that i made, and they liked them, and are using 4 for a documentary they’re doing on tattoos, suspension, and stuff like that (i think it’s a series about odd habits people have, ?). can’t wait to see it. i should also get a small credit at the end.
thanks…you’ve been WARNED
*the first 4 are the ones they selected. the rest are some other good ones:
heres a slideshow from UNM’s International Festival. i wanted to stay a bit longer (than half an hour) to eat some food, and shoot and interview, but had to split to shoot something else. Joey’s been a big help. he was able to interview the coordinator of it that afternoon, so we had at least one interview. slideshow ended up short and sweet.
video of first day of the College Unions Poetry Slam Invite in the SUB. this was the first time using the new camera, the Canon HG10—it’s great! still, the stabilization is not quite as up to par with the old Sony, but in all other aspects it’s much better. it’s even HD. why bother buying a SD camera these days? you can always down-sample the HD (which i was worried about), and have the option to show work in HD. also, if you need to process video to lighten, color-correct, etc., it gives you more initial info to work with. kind of like the difference between JPG and any RAW still image format. at least upon my early impressions.
i’m going to be trying to put up more soundslides. i just have to download them from JZ’s server, or wait and get them from the mac at the office.
it actually was a really cool concert, at the Stove, a little venue off Central and Morningside.
i liked some of the photos, but i need to get used to using a flash again—haven’t been shooting many stills, mostly video.
i’ll be shooting more in the future, though. since i’ll be trying to do more personal audio slideshow projects.
