Progress Report

Progress Report

So, I’ve made my first recording on SoundCloud, cheers to that. I’ve also done around 5 minutes of editing video content for my documentary on a filmmaker and documentarist himself. It’s really opened my eyes to just the past few hours I’ve spent editing my own work. It takes days, weeks, even years to get the perfect cut or take for a scene that a director or filmmaker would be completely satisfied with. I’m not sure if it’s even possible to get what you see in your mind’s eye out there on pen/paper, let alone captured on camera.

My video content is all done off my iPhone camera/video. This should be fun to work with. I’m using iMovie (surprise) on my MacBook Pro (uber surprise) so I’m pretty much appled out. However, after this short piece for my Media Digital Production course, I plan on buying a T3i camera and devoting my time to workout-at-home and fitness/health videos via my YouTube channel. Sounds promising, yes?

I’ve chosen a couple tracks off the creative commons license and free downloads website Jamendo for my videos. I’m not sure if they set the right tone for the story I’m conveying. I’ll have to play around with that a bit more. Since I used my iPhone as a recording device, the quality of audio isn’t that great so I’m trying to balance it out with having some ear-pleasing background music. Wish me luck.
