Life in a Day
June 2013 – A couple of years ago there was a “Life in a Day” project, where you filmed a part of your day, edited and it might be part of a movie. Ranae and I put one together, but we never submitted it. I just found it and we are making it public. I doubt it will generate much “watch time”. Some of the footage is quite raw. Still, it was fun going back and seeing some of the older projects. It was one of the first times we tried to make an artistic video. It was also the first time I had an extended monologue looking right into the camera. That’s a tough deal. But, that what the Life in a Day project was about.
I find projects like this educational and fascinating. It forces me to be aware of sound. It forces me to be aware of camera position. It forces me to see the story I’m trying to tell. There are just so many things to keep track of. It really makes you appreciate those people who are really good at this process. While I don’t pretend to be adept at movie making, these are the challenges I enjoy. I also enjoy spending time with my horse. And, showing her off. She is a good friend. She’s a good horse. She tolerates my indulgences.
I also enjoy spending time with my wife. She doesn’t much enjoy the video stuff. She is also a good friend. She is a great wife. She also tolerates my indulgences. Who could ask for more.
We do not have a particularly exciting life. Maybe not good enough for a movie. It is pretty good though. We hope you enjoy this little glimpse of our life in a day.
