All my life is a stretch but a month ago it would have been nice to have found these courses. When will I learn? Read the instructions first. Something I have never embraced.
Now I have four hours of footage shot in LA ...the audio is bad, the footage includes miles and miles of landscape shots (it looked so good out the car window.. ), I figured out ND filter in the middle of Sunset Strip at 9:30 at night, bought a levalier mic. mid-trip but did not account for wind noise at the sidewalk table at Mel’s Diner. I only figured out F-stop two days ago. And why in the holy hell is the background so sharp and my subject out of focus??
So much for the Kardashian spoof we were shooting. One of the most damning realizations in all of this is seeing my face on film. When did I get so doughy? When did I stop moving my lips when I talk? Looks like I am holding something in my jaw like nuts or golf balls. And was that shot of me standing on a chair at the Griddle just some kind of cruel exercise to make me feel like a fat fuck? Evil.
Okay. So. Back on a diet. I will make something of this footage. It won’t be a Kardashian spoof. It will just be another home movie. Or just a little better, maybe. I’m gonna need a Xanax.
