I hope that this is the beginning of some good habits for the time I am off work. I currently have taken 7 months paternity leave and am looking forward to spending time with family. I also have a goal to write a blog post a week as well as edit a short weekly video. I am going to try and focus on different filming and editing techniques that I would like to practice. I began by creating an intro using Adobe After Effects, a program I am not familiar with so I was excited to learn something new and it turned out very well. It will be the intro to all my weekly video posts. This week I wanted to practice with my steadycam as I have not used it as much as I would have liked. I went to pick up A at pre-school and used him as a test subject to practice some follow moves (both walking forwards and backwards). We both had a great time. Yesterday I was out with L and created a hyperlapse of our downtown main street to use for the beginning scene of this weeks edit. I will post the final edit for this week soon. I look forward to working on these goals over my time away from work.
