Video Editing Mondays

It’s Monday and I’m back to my schedule of working on videos with my daughter after dinner. We haven’t been working on anything in some time due to summer laziness and then October since we focused on Haunted Houses and me getting better from being sick. We both sat down together last week and should finish our video this week on the latest installment of our My Little Pony Heavy Metal Videos.

I love Heavy Metal and my daughter loves My Little Pony so we thought why not combine them. We have a lot of fun making these ridiculous videos and laughing at how they turn out. Check out of few of the videos at http://www.youtube.com/metalpmv .

We’ve also started doing our CLOGS (Car Logs, a.k.a. Car Video Logging). When I drive my kid to school she says some stuff that cracks me up so I like to video our conversations and post them on our other youtube page. We try to get a couple in per week and also post other funny videos from our life on our site as well. We don’t do a ton of editing on these, since they are just a voyeuristic view on our life together. You can view those at http://www.youtube.com/metaldadanimegirl .

Hopefully this week I will also help my wife get her first video online. She took us all to a prop rock show by the almighty Rosemary’s Billygoat and we shot footage of the show and got an interview afterwards with Mike Odd. That will be up hopefully this week and I will make sure and post a link as soon as we’re finished editing it and making it pretty.

What kind of video do you like to work with?

 

Helping Dad With Technology

Posted in Random Stuff with tags , , , , , , , on November 7, 2012 by Dustin

I am helping my Dad this coming weekend with a new phone. He’s been talking to me for some time about getting a working smart phone and decided on the iPhone 5.  I will be making the trek to his house (2 hour drive) and trying my best to teach him how to use it. He has had issues with his portable phone at his house so this could be a challenge. He is up for it though and I know he’ll like the phone and all of its features.

I don’t get out much to see him but we talk on the phone about once a week or so. Since he lives so far away and I have such a busy schedule it makes it hard for me to stop by for quick visits and I have to plan full day trips. I try my best to get as much done for him while I’m out there since he won’t see me for a few months once I leave. He is technologically challenged though and will have lots of questions once I’m gone so hopefully the iPhone is simple enough for him to deal with on his own and not make him feel like he is wasting the 40 a month he is paying for it through my plan.

The one bummer about going up there this weekend is that the gallery I have written about in the past, the Walking Gallery, is being filmed by a local documentarian that night and I will miss it. I am ok with missing it due to the reason, helping my dad, but it’s still a bummer. Hopefully she will also be out the next month to witness what I have to offer. Until then I will be showing a 60 year old what an App is and how to reboot the phone if it freezes. Se la vie. I hope your weekend is good and thanks for stopping by.
