Well, everyone, this is the end for this short little movie. I have finished all I’m going to do with it.
Honestly, I’m disappointed at the final result. And I’d like to go on record and state that I really dislike the post stage of filming. Filming the scenes was interesting and kind of fun, despite having a lot of lighting issues. Thinking up all the various ideas (even if I could never actually get them to work) was also really fun. Editing and trying to add sound/music and get the effects to look right…..not so much fun.
I’m kind of upset that half of the scenes I had in my head didn’t make it at all (due to editing problems or just being unable to do it). I’m also rather mad that most of the sound I recorded didn’t come out either (most of it came out with a high pitch whine that caused headaches and ear-gouging pain). And after spending so much time on it, and wanting to move onto something else, I had to just finally say “that’s it, no more” lest I spend months working on the smallest details.
So what you’ll probably see is nothing like what I wanted it to look like. But you know, that’s okay. It’s been a pretty interesting learning experience and I have a new profound respect for those individuals out there that do this stuff for a living.
Will I do another (better) video in the future? It’s possible. I’m itching to do a better video to prove to myself that I CAN do a better video. But it won’t be for awhile. This has really burned me out. So who knows when it’ll be done or what it’ll be about.
And that’s really all I have to say about that now. I suggest you go watch it and see for yourselves.
