Note - at he risk of sounding presumptuous can I ask that this NOT be considored for votm - is a paying job and as such it is shackelled and doesnt really feel like mine, from my soul. Often I cheer and laugh when i edit cos it feels so great - but not with this.
Twas the night befor xmas and one of the maji ( thanks Paul ) gave me this job, even tho I am clearly not the baby Jeesus.
Blame the xmas thing but only about 20 words got exchanged with the manager offering the £250 for a record of the night. Staff / family / friends thing.
He gave me the tune, asked for a DVD that made the night look cool, and I gave him 3 hours filming ( budget 2 ) and 9 hours editing ( target 6 ) and this is the still rough but substantially finished result. It's going to look rough as it was mostly like filming by candlelight in a sauna - much gain / curving needed.
Filming was er challenging - lots of light / no light / flickery bright / disco sweat bath / freezing cold / condensatation - repeat.
One of these every month would almost keep me in coffee and fags - lets hope the man likes it.
This is the 'one befor done' render - a few edges to knock off yet.
