I'm pretty sure it's partially the difference in the way our brains are wired and partially the stigma that seems to be attached to performing WELL in the sciences for young girls, at least if you can believe the science editor of the <i>New York Times</i>.


I should note that I am terrible at both math and science. I was in high school, and I was in college, even when I tried really, really hard. I spent a small fortune on tutors to make the As in those classes, and I was really only regurgitating formulas that I forgot as quickly as the grades were in. I still have trouble following processes or even doing simple math. Unless I "feel" the process, I'll mess up the steps and get frustrated. That is to say, I have to have an emotional aspect to a set of steps, or else I get confused and my ability to follow order of operations or set priorities suffers. Connected to this, of course, is also when I am upset or frustrated or stressed, these already weak traits are the first to go. I have a hard time being self-confident and relying on my understanding of anything with a long series of actions if I am stressed, upset, frustrated, etc.

However, I have always found that editing feels to me like an artform. The mouse and keyboard is my paintbrush; the sources my palate; monitors my canvas. I don't approach editing with any kind of technical mindset (probably why I don't make concept videos, or techbeat videos, or anything of the sort). I do storyboard, but only very generically. The underlying scenes, but what I do as far as specific beat synch and effects are all up to how I understand the emotional ebb and flow of the sources used while I'm editing. Usually they will match up with my internal vision, but that's because I am already familiar with the sources before I begin editing, so much of the synch is already done in my head.

Take that as you may, it can be used as ammunition for both sides, I suppose.

Oh, and I was going to post a picture of my adobe premiere packaging, but my room is messy again, and it's late. I don't feel like tearing through my paperwork boxes to find it tonight, but I will post it tomorrow. I am not rich, I am not lying, but I did not pirate Premiere. I didn't pay for it, and I've never claimed to have paid for it. I worked with it, and my job let me keep it when they phased the position out as an added bonus. Otherwise, I would not have been able to afford it.

I used to view amvs as an artform, directing rather than editing. Then the whole technical aspect caught up and it became a chore. My favorite part is choosing or making footage and watching the finished project. I hate editing.

In that case you don't have to worry about proof. The only people I ever doubted were the ones who said they bought it for $500-900 a pop just so they could make amvs. People who work with the program (at some kind of job or school) are entirely different. They have a reason to invest besides the 3 to 5 minutes of enjoyment after the amv is finished. :?

Then again, hypocrite that I am, I've spent a small fortune in doujinshi and anime dvds, so I guess I could have been saving it up for a program if I were really dedicated. It's not that it sounds impossible to pay that much, just very unlikely for the casual hobbyists.

I bought my Apple Mac Mini with Final Cut Studio for the sole purpose of using it for video editing. I did spend on the order of $700+ on it. As it stands, I rarely use it for anything but post-processing, although I really, really, really want to cut my umbilical cord relationship with Premiere and use my Mac all the time so I can get away from the day when DRMed Windows will cripple my ability to edit on a PC.
