Day 13 – A Look into all my Photos

Project Looking Glass | Day 13

It’s March 14. I’m leaving Korea in 16 days. Korea has been my permanent home for the last four years. I’ve been teaching here every since graduation in 2007 from Gordon College, in Massachusetts, USA. It’s starting to hit me. And I’m sad.

I didn’t finish Day 12’s project until 6am the night before. It’s almost the same way again. It just takes a long time to try to get a video right. Tutorials are hard, because I have to practice them over and over again so I don’t have to go in and do heavy editing out of unnecessary mouse strokes. I’ve always been annoyed at people who upload videos and they are not efficient. I need to cut my videos down to 90 seconds because of Flickr’s rules. Just because YouTube allows someone to post a 15 minute video doesn’t mean we should. Yesterday’s video was sped up by 20%, I edited out unnecessary mouse strokes, and got straight to the point.

In today’s world, there are so many editing software for free and cheap. iMovie and Windows media player are two. Learn to use them, and get better. If you take a look at my first video from Day 1, there’s no sounds, cuts are not strong, everything’s at 800% faster, and it’s a bit boring. It’s been two weeks since I’ve started this project and I think I’ve done well for myself. What do you think?

The behind the scenes video today was partly inspired by Chase Jarvis Frames – his own behind the scene videos which are basically all of his production shots – sometimes thousands of them just lined up back to back. I know I had this idea on my own, but my video was inspired by him where he pauses a few pictures throughout. I’m missing about 25% of the photos I took tonight because I didn’t realize I left my memory card in my computer! Gagh! Oh well, just keep on trekking.
