I cannot even begin to tell you how many hours I spent trying to perfect this video last night. Also, I’d like to apologize for the excessive tweets I accidentally sent out, alerting people this movie was live, only to find it had been marked “private” or had been “deleted” altogether. I completely forgot my YouTube account and my Twitter account are linked. My bad.
When YouTube uploads any of my home movies they become really blurry. And it’s drives me absolutely insane. Especially after the extensive work I put into these with editing, and timing, and special effects. Plus, my new camera captured images and footage that are so incredibly clear – I desperately wanted to figure out some new compression methods in order to give me options so I would be able to chose the version that provided the most clarity.
Long story short?
After six hours, a lot of cursing, and several thousand failed attempts, I gave up.
Apparently, my videos on YouTube will never be HALF as clear as the rendition on my computer.
As promised, please enjoy this Holiday Home Movie, from my family to yours.
Clearly, we love to dance.
PS: It’s crunch time over here. I’m close to reaching the word count goal of 50,000 words. But I need to get this done in less than 5 days in order to complete the NaNoWriMo challenge. Basically, I’ve stopped editing entirely. In fact, I’m writing any and every thing that pops into my brain [as long as it pertains to my novel]. I figure, worst case scenario, at least I will be able to use those notes after NaNo is over.
