Sometimes, prepping for a vacation makes you feel like you need a second smaller vacation. Never the less, here's what's on tap for me this week.
-Finishing my taxes.
-Getting my good computer mike back from a friend so I can record voice-overs on the trip.
-Making sure my landlord, the post office and my credit union all know that I'm going out of town for those dates.
-Boning up on my Final Cut X Tutorials.
-Going through the YouTube Audio Library and picking out music for the videos.
-Practicing Color Correcting and slow motion.
You know, a while back, Steven Soderbergh up loaded to his Extension 765 website an one hour and forty eight edit of Michael Cimino's "Heaven's Gate" that he created during a holiday break in 2006.
I used to think "What kind of idiot spends his vacation re-editing a whole movie?".
I now realize that it's the same kind of idiot who decides to shoot and edit a mini-doc a day for a four-day vacation.
I just hope my idiotic behavior turns out half as well.
