Sometimes I wonder about myself.
After about a week of goofing off and about 48 hours of hardcore editing, I've completed my first anime music video. I must say, two things stand out when making this video. Use of pre-edited footage makes the editing a bitch sometimes, and I miss, but don't really miss the old A/B edit system I'm used to using. Ah, the fun of popping in and out SVHS and 3/4-SP tapes all day long, remixing and mixing down the audio on an 8-track ADAT, and only being able to do A/B transitions. Nope, no roll-editing here. But I do *really* miss the controlls. Being able to 'punch-in' and 'punch-out' your edit points, using the jog/shuttle wheel to quickly find what you wanted to mutiliate. Ah, those were the days. Maybe once a job is secured I'll go looking around to see if someone has made a decent edit controller that works with Premiere. Then I would be happy :) And a nice big-freaking RAID setup, 120gb doesn't go too far today :)
Besides, who ever liked swapping out SVHS and 3/4-SP tapes all day long? :p
Two Weeks. They say time flies when you are having fun. Funny thing is, I'm not having fun :p Still unemployed, and I've an open offer to move back to Mid-TN and restabilize myself. I've got about 3-4 weeks before I self-implode. *shrug*
Hey, at least later in the week my Chobits and .hack//SIGN comes in from Amazon. Just makes me mad that Cartoon Network got ahold of .hack//SIGN for air in the US before the DVD was even released. Who knows? Hamtaro struck the US by storm, with CN riding the tsunami. Will future US anime releases hit the TV before our local BestBuy or Suncoast? Only time will tell.
I now need to recover from my all-night edit session. :)
Well, the job search is rather pitiful. I'm starting ot look in other markets for chances in getting hired. San Antonio is looking good right now, couple of decent names hiring in positions that I can actually do. Gonna fire off another barrage of resumes Monday.
On other news, I cut my nails today.
