I finally felt confident that I had researched enough about sound mixing in Final Cut to start manually chopping away at the sound in the rough cut. Now, I’ve got the pilot episode polished and edited in time for Friday’s premiere. I’m really proud of it and ridiculously excited to share it. I’m a little bummed that our fake campaign ads didn’t generate the excitement or build the fan base we’d hoped, but whatever, they were fun. Soon the show can speak for itself and hopefully its popularity will grow from there.
I need to have all the episodes completed before next week because I just won’t have time to do it after that point. It’s getting down to crunch time with the moving process. Not to mention this Mac Book Pro ain’t mine anymore after Oct. 15. I am going to miss it so much. I bought an external hard drive to house all my video files until I can get my own Mac (someday, provided I find employment). I like being able to carry my editing suite with me wherever I go, but I hope to eventually have a pretty powerful desktop Apple to edit my projects on in the future. But first things first! Let’s focus on fun recipes you can make with ramen noodles, rice and beans. Because that’s all I’ll be eating for the foreseeable future.
On that note, if anyone has a used laptop they’re wishing to sell, hit me up. Or if you see a sweet deal on a net book for less than $300, please send it my way. Otherwise I’ll be blogging via iPhone and public library computer in Chicago.
I’m leaving my job in less than three weeks. I can’t even wrap my brain around that.
