My first mini-documentary

Posted on June 16th, 2011 Written on travelbug's blog

Still in the early stages of learning video, but inspired by what I've learned so far, I decided to try my hand at making a video for some friends who started a music school for kids in the Southwest side of Chicago.

So often, it seemed like the cuts hooked up effortlessly, simply because I had more than one angle for the same event. I look forward to seeing how th
