So, I got a Flip Mino HD for Christmas/Valentines Day/our Anniversary. *shakes fist at mortgage payment* So far I’ve just been filming silly little things here and there. Cassidy at dinner the other night, a rainbow on the commute home yesterday, etc.
The eventual plan is to start getting more into the vlogging thing because it’s fun, I like the “face to face”-ness of it more than reading and because it’s something new to learn. Mostly for that last reason. I need challenge, having to learn things, exploring new applications, completely fucking things up so that I end up cussing at the screen then crying then eating a quart of ice cream and then starting all over again. It’s a cycle that my thighs hate but my brain loves. Actually, so far my brain really hates Adobe After Effects but it’s really loving Premier Pro so I guess somewhere along the way it evens out.
Anyway, I sat down the other day to start REALLY trying to figure AE out and I at least got a really VERY VERY simple little title sequence done. I added it to the beginning and end of this video of the rainbow I mentioned before.
I clearly have a LONG way to go in the eye candy department and I’m not really sure what realm of vlogging I’m going to get into. I don’t have the energy or patience for a daily show type of thing, but I do have a strong narcissistic urge to make you all have to look at me when I’m talking to you so I’ll just leave it at that and see where things take me.
