I am currently waiting for my files to convert from my Final Cut timeline in Compressor. I figured I would write a quick blog while my Mac Pro does its work in the background. For all you technical types out there, I am sure you can appreciate this post.
I am hoping to show my film in HD (1920 x 1080 for those who care!) at some of the festivals, but we may have to settle to plain old DVD for those that do not give me the option. I was a little disappointed in having to bring it down to SD, but filming on the Canon 5D really made a difference. I was very surprised at how good a SD DVD looked on my TV. Sometimes I am frustrated with technology, but it is times like this, that makes me not want to throw my electronics out the window.
Although editing can be tedious, painful, stressful, and torturous; having a good system, software, and most of all an interesting subject makes it less painful. After all, if I have to stare for thousands of hours at anything, watching my father do kung fu is my torture of choice.
