Hi guys, I'd like to introduce what is really my first film. I wont even call it an amateur film because it isn't as good as that. I'm not a videographer and I don't sport any decent equipment. This film is really two journeys, our riding holiday in the Alps, and my own creative journey.
Once the footage was safely tucked onto HDD, and it was time to start editing, I learnt a valuable lesson; that Pinnacle HD 14 sucks. I'd gotten this from work (the media department at the school where I teach) uses P.HD, however it was thoroughly unable to cope with my 720p60fps footage. Out to the local IT shop, and home with Sony Vegas Platinum 10. Thankfully, I could install this away from the limited capacities of my Pinnacle sporting laptop, and onto the more potent HTPC.
It's taken me around 28 hours to edit - with the final 3-4 minutes being left hardly touched. The credits roll before the final section because I wanted to seperate it from the parts of the film that I actually spent a lot of time over. These clips also didn't really fit anywhere else, but they needed to be included as it's our holiday memorablia.
I would of course appreciate any advice and tips (but you don't need to comment on the final section - I really didn't think about it that much). Also, check out two people in the credits from VF I've thanked
So here it is; One Loose Crank - Nose Kills in the Alps.
