I hope everyone had a great holiday and a safe/fun new year 🙂
Just updating everyone on the Rmar music video. Sadly I didn’t make the deadline of uploading the music video before the new year. But hopefully I’ll have it ready for early 2013. So I wanted to open up on the reasons why it has been taking longer than usual to edit this video. There’s two things:
1. This is the first time I’m editing while working a regular full-time job. So I don’t get that much time during the week to work on the video, nor do I on the weekends because I’ve been pretty busy lately. I know other people can manage it, so I know I should be able to do it too. Which I will of course. *Quick aside, I did have a “normal” full-time job when editing The Can-Cannibals grindhouse shorts but as I will explain in a later post that too was difficult to manage. But that’s a different story for a different time.
2. To be honest, I’ve been having trouble with the structure of the video; on how to format it. Unlike my previous music videos which were pretty much short films, this video is more fast paced, rapid with many cuts, essentially it’s and more like a music video, lol. So I’m having a hard time grasping exactly how to edit it with such little time to work on it. But I’ve got some good news, I’ve recently come up with a new approach to the video, and I feel this is the right direction to take it. I’m not giving up! If there’s any major updates I’ll share them on my Facebook or here.
Thanks to those involved for your patience 🙂
Lastly, I just want to share some inspiration for this video. I know it’s weird to share another music video while working/promoting my own, but whatever. Remember: I’m influenced by not taking (stealing) from Pearl Jam’s “Do The Evolution” music video.
And I was inspired by the film A Clockwork Orange; then again I’m inspired by A Clockwork Orange for almost every project I work on.
