Video editing can be a pain. And some of tonight's pain would have not existed had I not knocked over the camera (iPhone) stand. Which led to me putting it back in a spot that wasn't exact to the previous spot. So when I layered two pieces of film together, they didn't exactly lined up. This video I did was a learning experience. Also a lesson of letting go. I had a certain time frame to shoot the video. I can go back and try to make the clip even more seamless, but that would consume time and I'm learning. More than likely I'll do a few more videos like tonights and my skills will improve. It's a lesson in failing. Learning to let go and try again. I'm hoping that by taking this attitude, my stories and my videos and short films will be much better by the end of the year.
