Once upon a time a boy and a girl fell in love. Two weeks later, they were engaged and within three months, they were married.

They are about to celebrate 50 years of marriage and planning is in full swing. Somehow, I'm not really sure how, I volunteered (oh, yes, THAT'S how) to put together a video clip of interviews.

To make a long story short, we have approximately eleventeen million minutes of video to condense into 10 minutes. To make matters worse, my hard drive is nearly full and I had to obliterate things just to transfer the video files to the movie editing software and then when it imported to the software, it looks all squished. Kinda like what happens with cheap cotton shirts when they shrink funny and come out of the dryer larger in width than in length.

So now, I'm pretending like my time isn't dwindling and trying to forget that I have this HUGE looming project on my plate because I'm afraid I'm going to put hours of work into it, only to have my in-laws turn out looking like oompa-loompas because of some importing glitch.

I mean, that's totally a legitimate coping skill, right? Just pretend it doesn't exist and it'll either 1. complete itself or 2. just go away.



Why are you looking at me that way?

Hey, wanna edit a video for me? :D

  1. I'm guessing your recorded video size is different than the standard movie size your program is using. You probly recorded in standard, but the program starts in HD. Change the size settings in the editing program and they should stop looking like oompa loompas. If that doesn't seem to work, blame it on the children. They thought it would look cooler that way. ;)

    And, for time, take everyone's best wish or story and start there. If it's still too long, it might just have to be longer than 10 minutes. There will probably be stories and comments that also aren't the BEST, but can't be left out, so that will have to be taken into account, but only once the best are in!


I love comments! And, I welcome your thoughts that aren't in agreement with long as they are respectful!
