editing

A very good day

It was a swell day. It has been a pretty busy time and it actually has absolutely nothing to do with the Christmas.  The documentary is due to be completed this month.  We’ve decided not to take the “Film Festival” route.  We’re getting too many calls and requests for the DVD.  So we’re going to […]

I cloned a human!!!

Ever wish there were more than one of you?  Well, don’t over think it – the part about a bigger food budget and more bedrooms and college tuition for all of the YOU’s. I used Adobe After Effects (AE) for the special effect.  I filmed the scene with a camera on a tripod.  The subject […]

Where’s My Ejection Seat?

I have SO many difficult tasks to do today.  Where’s my ejection seat?  I gotta get outta here!  I’m on the last timeline for a wedding day edit and I’m soooo close to being finished.  The pre-ceremony turned out amazing.  The ceremony is done.  Post ceremony was fantastic.  Finished the introductions, toasts, first dance, and […]
