virgin no more

yup 
finally

 can you imagine living with a video editor?
 trust me
 you can't

 i have long stayed far away from video
 my love is still photography
 occasionally 
i shoot something that moves
 it blurs
 that's my experience 
with 
moving pictures
 until now

i lie

 twice in the past
 i used the video camera on my iphone 4 
but i never shared it

 okay 

i did share one
 a very brief pathetic selfie 'singing' 

those who know me
 know why
 'singing'
 is in quotes

 it was part of a video
 put together to give a sick friend a smile
so technically it doesn't count

 anyway

 one morning
 harry was playing with a toy
one
 he especially likes to chew
 on the floor
 beside the scratching post
 now normally
 i would be all
 ooh aren't you adorable
and 
go back to whatever
but 
that morning
 i decided to make a video of his antics
 when i was done
 i wanted to share it

 let me tell you how hard it is to export a video from an iphone
 there are three options 
mail
 too big
 did i want to send a clip
 no i did not

 message
 whoa
 too long
 wanna select a smaller clip
 no i do not 

youtube
 ahhh 
just right
 so i do

 meanwhile
 toonman
 who is a video editor in real life
 got involved

 i googled
 get this video off this fucking phone and into imovie please so my husband can help 

guess what?
 a tutorial
even instruction reading phobic me 
could follow
 it worked
 easy peasy
 but
 toonman
 does not like my computer OS interface
 he opted to stay in the land of OS 10.6 
while i am in 10.8 
soooo 
we plugged my iphone into his imac
 added some music 
a little editing 
and 
here it is
my debut video


some would say
 i pulled
 a tom sawyer or is it a huck finn?

  9. Good for you!! One of the reasons I like having my new iPhone instead of my former Droid phone is because I can just plug it in to my iMac and import videos. Easy!! Thanks for sharing:-)

  12. I think the video is great, especially for your first attempt. I like the bouncy porn music.

  13. Excellent! And I just wrote tomorrow's blog post where I talk about wanting to dabble in video too. However, I don't have an i-phone so I might resort to the old fashioned video cam. If I can ever figure out how to work it.

  17. OK, you know I love Harry, so no further comment concerning him. I do have a question, though. What is the music? I love it. As a bass player, I'm a sucker for those rock-steady funky sort of lines.

  18. I say, 'I watched it and what amazing eyes Harry has :).' Well done!
