Video Filming & Editing: First Experience

Below is the first video clip I filmed and partially edited.  Uploading and editing this small clip was a breeze for me because I have worked with video editing before.   However, I was getting used to the video camera and stand, since I had not been in class to learn about the camera.

I figured out how to use the camera, mic and stand on my own! It took some experimenting, but I have always been good with technology.

The original video length of this clip was four minutes long. I watched the entire video a few tomes before editing it. Then I chose the best 30 second segment in the video that I liked the best and cut the rest out! Easy.

I chose to film my dog for this practice clip because he is entertaining and cute.  Plus, who doesn’t love animals! He was easy to film and wasn’t self-conscious in front of the camera.

The Meaning of Relationships

Recently, a tragic accident occurred in the life of a little girl I know. Her and her father were in a car accident. The dad lost his life and she was rushed to the hospital.

This girl’s accident made think of my dad, mom and siblings. What was the last thing I said to each one of them? It also occurred to me that I don’t always recognize how much someone’s presence in my life really means to me.

It is so easy to hold grudges or be angry with  loved ones. But all for what? To waste negative energy?

The positive relationships in our lives  help form who we are as people. They also help support us throughout life.  Just like the little girl’s dad did with her. I believe that relationships are essential to the human core. We create connections and break connections with people everyday but we shouldn’t take the most important relationship for granted.

Sisters

My sisters and I. We are inseparable.

Treasure those who love support you without hesitation. Embrace their love and give it back.
