So, I went over to my friend Lance’s house last night. He showed me how to capture video footage to my computer, and also gave me some helpful editing tips.
Over the next couple days, I am planning on transferring the footage to my laptop. Shortly after, editing will commence. I still have a few more things which I need to film, and I need to do this sooner than later, but 98% of the movie is shot.
While we were messing around with the editing software, I took two of the shots, trimmed them and spliced them together. I played it back and behold! The juxtaposition of images! The magic of storytelling! The thrill of a conversation in a car!
It is absolutely pure joy seeing this movie start to come together.
Editing really suits my personality — intense concentration, attention to detail, etc. I am looking forward to assembling this movie. It will take time, but I hope to enjoy every minute of it.
I still can’t believe I’m making a movie.
Yeehaw, man. Yeehaw.
