Movie Madness
« on: September 06, 2018, 01:42:14 PM »
I have to hand it to several videologists here on the Guild, including, but not limited to, Crosman999 (Dana ) and Hajimoto. Their stuff is great!

I'm lucky enough to have a very fast Mac, replete with Final Cut Pro X. With them (even someone like me) I could produce a passible video. But... I don't have the patients these guys have to sit for hours editing both insert video and sound clips. This fact makes these "other guy's" videos even more rewarding. So, let it be known, that I am jealous and diminished by their dedication to making videos for the rest of us to enjoy.

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).

Thanks you guys, yeah it's a ton of work involved and we're constantly learning. I get people being critical of my videos all the time but I don't the know they really realize how many hours it takes to produce just 5 min of video. Lol Movie maker is pretty easy to use for just about anyone, Adobe Premiere is well...complicated to say the least. For me I have been trying to up production to include better audio and better narrative, for me it's not easy to talk on camera without sounding like a blithering moron...I have to really practice. Haha In the end it's pretty rewarding and fun  ;D

I do not take for granted the kind words that are bestowed on me as it relates to my video productions. I am truly humbled and appreciative when someone takes their time to write to me to express how much they legitimately were entertained by a video I produced. I too agree that it is ridiculous how long the editing process is. I typically use at least two cameras one of which is a scope camera so when a shot presents itself you cannot simply aim and shoot, there is the whole preaction sequence of activating all the capture gear.

I watch Dana's videos and while I love the video content with all the panoramics and super distance zoomouts, I can't help but think of the batteries, tripods, cameras, memory chips, lenses and time to set up the video shot PRIOR to the rifle shot.

Video production is a labor of love for certain and one of the greatest driving forces for me to produce video content is the ability to take others with me, to allow the moment to be shared through the lens of both the camera as well as the scope.

Thank you so much for the acknowledgement guys and gals (if those are acceptable pronouns)

The praise is earned!  Good job!

I bought a gopro a few years ago, and the first thing I learned is that capturing the video is just a small step in the process.  Getting the right shot, good audio, good editing, good narration/background all make it work. 

The second thing I learned was that I didn't want to be bothered with all that when I'm going in the country to have fun!!

So I really appreciate those who do.
