I can't say my vacation was particularly relaxing but man o man did I do a lot. Mere moments after landing I was almost immediately lost and never really figured out where I was the entire time I was there, ha. I was in San Francisco for 3 and half days and in that time I went to: pier 39, explored a mirror maze, played with light sabers, found some cool art, played on the beach, and well you get the gist. I think my favorite activity was the suicide girls blackheart burlesque show.
Desire to learn silks intensifies! There were so many cool things happening. I only captured a fraction of it with this video. I would have liked to include more but it was so dark most of the footage didn't look very good. I think my favorite act was the silk duo. It was so cool to see 2 people doing silk at the same time.
A few years ago some of my friends made a video called, "Darkest Dungeons." They put a lot of hard work into it and I respect the project but it wasn't my favorite video that they've made. I felt like the pacing of the video was off. This came up in conversation recently so I decided to take a crack at editing it. I'm pretty proud of how much I was able to change it. Over all I'm jazzed I could take a 20 minute video and cut it down to just over 3 minutes and have it make sense.
For context here is the original 20 minute video. https://youtu.be/Tk_-ZJJEyY4
Last weekend I saw some bright wibbly wobbly lights. I went to an event called Blink. To quote their website, "Blink is an experience of light, street art, murals and live performance spread across 25+ blocks of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky." It was quite a large event and really spread out. I feel like I missed quite a few parts of it but my favorite things were the bridge and the teeter totters.
In a surprise to no one I went to another Renaissance Festival. This one was in Ohio and was by far the largest one I've been to. Not only did I get lost for a little bit but I didn't manage to see everything in a day. I think my favorite part was the kamikaze fireflies. I even got to see a Guinness world record broken. 5 flaming hula hoops at once!
I let my sister borrow my insta 360 one x to take to the humane society and now y'all get 2 videos for the price of one. One for all those fans who want the overall experience of the humane society and one for people who just wanna watch kittens just be kittens.
If that wasn't enough kitten action for you, give this video a shot.
This turned out just as cool as I'd hoped. Only thing I'd change if I could would somehow making the clip of the camera actually going through the glass way slower. I slowed it down 8x's but it still looks so fast. Other than that I'm quite happy with how this turned out. I used 7 different cameras to film this video.
Super excited about my next video. Just stabbed through a storm door with a camera on my sword. I’ll post the final video soon.
I updated my reel. This time I decided to try something a little different. In the past I've made a film reel and then a separate animation reel. This time I decided to put all of my content into one video, live action, animation, and fx all together. I filmed, edited, and animated all of the clips featured in the reel. Everything is original and came from my quirky mind with help from a few friends here and there. I primarily used programs from the creative cloud to create these videos.
Still not sure about mixing the live action and animation into one video but based on feedback I receive I'll know what to do next time. Next year I hope to feature a few sword fighting clips from a project I've secretly been working on. 😉
