Just wanted to let everyone know that I should have got into this hobby years ago.
You see, as much as my post count makes might make me look like a seasoned regular at this game to some, I am in truth still very new. Got my camera in Feb 04 and editing rig in June.
Unlike my previous comp entry, which was just an editing exercise using some footage I already had, my new comp entry is going to be a short story shot for the purpose of the comp.
What I didn't realise though was how much more I'd enjoy the process. Still in the planning stages but all the script writing, prop making (just letters to be opened and read in the story), planning camera angles and title sequences to I have the correct shot for them etc etc is just great fun.
I'm having loads of fun going through, what I guess is, the entire movie process.
I'll be writing, directing, filming, starring in and editing the entire production. The only thing I won;t be doing is writing the music. So much more to think about than making something out of the footage you already have. Great fun!
The final results might prove to be complete cack but I'm having loads of fun trying to piece it altogether and think it all through.
Just wanted to share that.
