What a time for my Internet to go down
Release a new AMV and BAM, my intermittent DSL connection bites the dust. For once Fairpoint took my call to complain seriously and actually fixed the problem instead of telling me to call back if it happens again!
I'm in for some four video projects this month at work, product demo videos, one of which was a surprise project we haven't even filmed yet. *rubs forehead wearily* I've got a real hard deadline, too: Oct. 28. I'm off to Vegas for a week and a half at the end of the month for a couple tradeshows...where I'll also be doing video work, though just for social media posts and whatnot. This all means I don't anticipate any AMV editing this month, because I'm just going to be sick of that sort of thing.
I really want to get one of those sparkly fake rhinestone lanyards for by show badge, a couple years ago lots of women working the shows in Vegas (not THOSE kind of women, get your mind out of the gutter!!). Trying to decide if I should buy one now to save $$ or be free, spendthrift spirit and buy one at horrible inflated prices out there. I only bring this up because I am not a sparkly person, me wanting a rhinestone lanyard is bizarre.
Harlock Into Darkness - My sixth AMV
Well that only took four hours of wrangling to get this thing ready for the Internet. Yeesh. NOT what I had planned on doing this gorgeous Sunday. On the positive side, I did some fall cleaning during all the rendering (and re-rendering...and re-re-rendering) and got all my apartment windows washed. Now I'm off to clean the garage and paint a garden shed! BBL!
Oy...getting to be time to release a new AMV.
Which means it's time to go BACK to editing and adjust things which have been bugging me, make an announcement poster, update my forum sig., research keywords on YouTube... *sigh*
And think about what's next. I'm kind of in an editing mood, having just proved that I can create something which I am negligibly passionate about. It was the first non-traumatic experience of my editing life, actually. There's a drama video or three I'd like to make, but they're quite challenging and I've backed away from them in the past. Maybe I'll take another (in some cases, SIXTH) stab at those again.
Oh those puppy eyes... how can I resist?!
I wasn't planning on sending this anywhere until the spring, but since you asked, I will certainly pop it over your way in a few weeks. :)
Arrrggghh It's done.
So unless I decide to change things in the next six hours (entirely possible), I've completed my sixth AMV. Current rate seems to be one every year-and-a-half/two years. :|
Last-minute additions and subtractions are complete. Final fiddling with clips I've already fiddled with 27 times is finis. Wrestling with temperamental AVS script WHICH WORKED FINE THE LAST TIME I USED IT is over. What's going on now? First test MP4 file is being encoded. So far, no crashes! Meanwhile, I'm going to go play with my dog!
