Finished editing the footage from the TSO sequence Christmas Eve Sarajevo. Posted it to Vimeo and added the HTML link to the 2011 video pages. 2 down... several to go !!!
I almost forgot to point out that we added a "Calendar of Events". This is where we will be keeping our time table of events and projects. We almost wated to long in 2011 to get everything done. So this year we are going for a more organized approach. Follow along in the calender and see how things are shaping up for the 2012 display !!
Anybody else in the world with a video camera !!!!
MADE YOU LOOK !!!
I have posted the first video from the 2011 Christmas display season to Vimeo and linked it back to our website. I updated the Video section and have broken it out into display years. I hope this makes the vidoes a little better organized and easier to find.
I always have such good intentions to learn my camera a little better and to really get into Vegas Movie Studio for editing it all together. However a great camera (which I don't have) and fantastic editing software (which I DO) does not a great film make.
I have the technical skills to do it, I just dont have the artistic/creative vision that is needed to see, capture and create a great video. To me its a lot loke web design. I have the programming skills to do anything I want to do, but I dont have the artistic vision to put it together. I have a lot of respect for those that do. Thank you Weebly!
BUT... on the other hand, these are simply videos of our Christmas display so we can share with all of you. It's not an epic drama destined for greatness. Maybe next year I can create the next great movie. Perhaps Gone with the Display, or Display Hard, or even The Wizard of Christmas. Hmmmmm... I'm thinking probably not.
All the lights are down, the yard is dark but I'm pretty sure Christmas threw up in our garage (haha). The best laid plans of mice and men are telling us that before we just box it up and put it up that we go through it and clean up and out.
My New Year resolution is to keep up with everything this year and not let it get down to the wire before we start doing what needs to be done. January is clean up and put away month. Additionally I am trying to edit together the last minute video I shot for presentation.
We have already ordered new display signage which should be here in a couple of weeks. This will be the first of the 2012 projects. I have a really neat idea for mounting and lighting the signs. They look GREAT in my head. I'm excited to see how they look in reality.
Hopefully we can stay on track
January - Clean up, put up and video
February - Yard Sign
March - Rework the MegaTree and possibly move the suspend train from under the porch tounder the tree
Thats about as far out as I have gone. I dont want to lose focus.
Light-O-Rama V3 is out and there are decisions to make about upgrading which leads me to the one thing that needs to occur EVERY MONTH ...... sequence.. sequence.. sequence...
More thoughts and ramblings later....
