Today I started a project which has been in the back of my mind for a good few months. I have finally begun putting together a series of video essays, the first of which revolved around my BA dissertation – it’s a topic I didn’t want to let go of as I enjoyed the process immensely. What better way to revisit my work then to translate my study into a video that is both informative and entertaining.
I haven’t had much experience editing so it’s already been an interesting experience, it’s been nice to do something practical and to be able to zone out from the real world. I spent my summer living and breathing video essays in my spare time. The best are short and concise, so it’s my personal challenge to adhere to this, by having a balance of all the information possible while maintaining pace. I’m looking forward to getting on with the process and perfecting it before I release it to the world. Then I can move on with my other ideas. It’s great to have an outlet to reduce stress, and even better that the outlet is somewhat productive. Watching clips from the films I studied just brought that research excitement back to me, I was lucky to come across such an interesting topic. I’m desperate to continue with the topic somehow, but we’ll see.
