Is it Friday Still?
**wow, I cannot believe that I am writing this, but I was JUST about to hit publish on my blog post. Went to click save. And my screen froze and I sadly lost all of it!! #UGH So, here it goes a SECOND TIME.**
Well Hello There!
I must say I am having a hard time staying super positive here as I was legit done with writing this entry and I just spent the last 30 minutes writing it. But oh goodness. Deep breaths, we can get through this!
I don't even know how it's already midnight!? (12:38 really...)
Well, I guess it mayyybe it's because I was filming my first youtube video all day today! hehe :) It was a little bit stressful trying to manage a million different ideas at once (welcome to my brain). Even though I created a storyboard of the different camera shots I wanted to do, there was still just a million different things that as usual came up right when I started filming. For instance, I quickly realized that my camera has a 2 minute limit for video recording because of how small my SD card is. #thingsyoufindoutafteryoustartfilming Also, I realized that batteries are mean and I give a lot of credit to the youtubers that put out pretty high quality[ish] videos every day all on their own. Just the idea of a weekly video goal seems a little bit over ambitious to start out with.... but hey!
I am now currently at the point where I need to just pass out. But, as I blast femme fatale I am looking through my footage from today beginning the lovely and boring editing process. In my opinion, editing film is all about patience. It is really easy to get ahead of yourself and try to do too much at once. I should know, as I probably have every single editing software open right now. :P I am practicing to set small deadlines and break down the projects in order to make it easier to handle. Also I am wanting to remind myself that it's okay if things take longer than I thought they would. This whole experience is going to be a learning experience, and (as much as I dislike this phrase) only time will tell. :)
Next Wednesday, I will be filming my second video with my amazing friend Maria! So, I've got plenty of time to work on this first video until then. Also, coming March 9th you can finally catch the trailer for my youtube. (Shhhh don't tell.)
