[Trailhead: from Mastodon]
A New Life Resolution
Okay, look. I've got some fairly majorly improved video editing software now, lots of imagination, and I feel creatively stifled.
it's time to start some real major projects, big and small, including a YouTube series as well as littler projects. I NEED to create!!
I would love to collaborate, too.
I'll get some ideas down and start something real soon. I can't wait. I'm busting to start.
Watch me shine!
One thing I really want to do is to give some thanks to some of my inspirations.
For Julien Neel, I want to do a multitrack a cappella video where I'm onscreen several times in different screens singing in harmony.
For Nick Nocturne, I want to maybe do a kind of NightMind-type of video but it's actually a mockumentary (which as a genre has been a huge inspiration and fascination for me) where I pretend to review and interpret some kind of YouTube series that is not real, or an ARG or a game...or I do one of an ARG that itself turns out to be the trailhead for a real ARG of my own....hmmm...
I can do multiscreen, I can do masking and play multiple characters in one shot (if it's a still camera shot, I am not advanced enough for a tracking shot just yet), I can do screen in screen, I can do chroma-key if I just work at it. I can really take off and do major learning AND major creativity and just run with it!!
Well, now the classes are done for the day and I want to start brainstorming on projects to do and start to come up with at least a sketch for a multi-character skit, a song to harmonize on, a phony ARG or YouTube series to do a documentary on (or summarize), and an original YT series...
New notes and thoughts.

Okay, well, tomorrow I would love to have a video planned, maybe using masking and multi-character stuff, and shoot it, and get ready or started for the editing process. I think I have enough different kinds of costumey things to do a modest cute thingy.
Perhaps the thing to do is to record the audio first, so everything can sync to that. I imagine it could start with one character middle foreground, interrupted by an entrance from the door to my study, introducing a second character. Once that character has established herself in a stable location, more people can begin to show up.
Note to self: Don't get too fancy and elaborate; this is mostly to teach myself how to do this stuff, don't worry too much about making a magnificent piece of artwork just now!
Though it wouldn't hurt to make it amusing.
Should I write the scripts here, or a side blog at this same account, or what??
: transfer an item from one character's hand to another's just using something greenscreened out of the image and two takes. For a wow moment.
Maybe I can do a video version (or the radio version and afterward set it to a grim dusty set of images as originally planned) of "Out of Earshot"!
I had a wretched time Monday, got drunk, got hated on
Tuesday was kind of a bad feeling hangover (metaphorical)
Today I have been feeling shitty but I'm talking with people and it's getting better. I think so, at least.
