No Wall for me

Thought I was going to end up on the wall this time, because I had my children two weekends in a row, and my regular crew bailed on me for holiday parties and travel commitments. But my kids helped me pull together an entry. Just need to lay down a couple of guitar tracks, to have legit music too.

If Caroline had that "Baby's First Editing" system, she could have helped me piece this thing together. Gotta get that...

Well, it's not looking good, sports fans. Too much festivities, another (albeit paying) project, and a botched attempt to learn AE caca in a week and it's all making for <sigh> another spot on "the wall." I'm going to try and get what I can IN the can but I'm disappointed. Need to hire a 12-year-old to show me how to do this effects stuff (or stop relying heavily on effects, huh?). :D

Good luck DVC'ers! I look forward to seeing the entries.

Oh, try, Edward! Maybe you could just spoof it out, like text that says, “--- special effects here” or something. ;)

These darn things always seem to be disappointing in one way or another, so I sympathize with you. I’ve not forgotten my DVC motto that came from the “sun” challenge: If you don’t know After Effects, don’t try to do something that needs it!

Or maybe you and I need to enroll in an AE class… :)

Well, I'm debating whether to even try to edit what I have into a movie. I one of the best ideas that I've had and talked some friends into doing it, BUT!

I was shooting all day in Wellington, and they were shooting all day in Stuart. By the time everyone was done and we got together at his home, we were all tired and the kids were almost out of it. Shooting with small children at 10:00pm=Disaster.

The young girl was so tired we could not even get her to say simple lines. The dog was running all over and the cat who was just brought home after being missing for 2 weeks was crying moaning.

I may turn this in, but everyone realize that it is not like I wanted at all! If I were in school, I would say that the dog ate my homework!!!!!!!!!!!

Mike

Well, I've made my decision, no movie for this challenge. I spent $106.00 just for the Santa Claus costume rental, but that is just life!

Best of luck to everyone else! Remember, a local small charity will appreciate and make better use of the donated money than a big national organization will.

May the best movie win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mike

Go for it! It was just that I was so far from what I intended that I could not see going forward.

Looking forward to seeing all of the entries!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry to hear that, Mike. Given what happened, I sure don't blame you.

Were you Santa Claus? I would love to have seen that! Maybe you should post a clip of that for us. :)

Looks like it's a Wall Of Shame for me. Had relatives come into town at the last minute midweek and they are still here... Sigh.

Same thing more or less happened to me, so I made them be part of my madness known as "The Nutcracker". :-p
