I figured I should start a thread for this. Plus a disturbing thing has happened at youtube! Silver has overtaken Zero Hour in views! Only up for half of the time it has (at this moment) 156 views while Zero Hour has 154. Hopefully soon we have a nice day and Todd and I can finish shooting Cornered.

Aww man! I was working on the cornered video and had put 2 hours into it. I saved it but something went wrong and it didn't actually save. 2 hours work down the drain!

So I decided to put together a rough version of the Cornered video without Todd and I in it. I think I will still add us in at some point. I redid alot of my lost work and am just rendering it now. Watching the clips I have to say I was a very weak director, I am so very lucky that I had a couple of great seasoned actors to execute what I wanted without me really directing them. Huge thanks to Ian and Jaime Dickson. So maybe later this week I can get the rest of the shots and finish it.

yep the video looked good so i hope that we can find some time to put us in it.............as i felt it was good but it look more like just a movie with a song playing rather than a music video if that makes sence? Hopefuly the rut will disapear and we can do what important right now and finish the video.

Well things should be a bit easier to shoot video, I got my tripod earlier today. Kind of a cheap one but it will work.

The edited video for Creep went up on YouTube Mar 6 2011. Today I made an unedited version and fixed a little thing in Zero Hour that has bothered me forever. It's such a small stupid thing I doubt that anyone will even notice the difference, but I will. So now we have a collection of viseos as follows:

Creep
Cornered
Zero Hour
Silver
My Right

Day the CD Arrived (clips)
Creep (practice Jan 2008)
Doors (Aug 2008)
Zero Hour (Sep 2008)
My Right (Sep 2008)
Recording My Right (clips)
Fallen Interview (clips)

I hope that we can finish at least 2 more before we move on to something new.

While driving through Edmonton I thought I could get some crappy video on my phone of all the stinky smokey factories on the outskirts. I knew this footage would be low quality but I took as much of it as I could. There is also a quick bit of the refinery at Lloydminster. Anyway I put them on the laptop and converted them into something I could actually use. I played with them in Cyberdirector until I had something I liked. The low quality actually makes it look better plus I sped the clips up, and they are very red now. I am taking a trip to saskatoon and hope to get some footage in Corman park. Then I will see what the band schedule is like, I may have to put people in one at a time. At any rate I hope to finish a video for this before Interesting comes out. If I do it, it won't be completed much before Interesting. I'm gonna try my darnedest to complete all this.

Factory is now done, except Jordan is not in it yet! Hopefully when we get together again we can rectify this and get Factory on the internetz. Hope I can finish Becoming before we get the new CDs back!

Got footage for the last bit of Factory and hopefully enough footage for Becoming. I will have to check what we actually have for footage as we used 4 cameras. I work tomorrow and have a list of things to do, so I imagine I won't be able to really get at this till monday or so. Then start getting ready for the first video for Interesting!

So I put all the footage on my video computer. I started arranging the (so far) 8 tracks of video. I'm not sure how much is on the last camera but I need a special cord for it and that's at Todds right now. I think I only need 3 more full takes and one quick shot with Jordan, so Becoming is really coming together. I started editing the tracks and thought "What am I doing, I could finish Factory tonight!!!" So I have a bit of a problem. The effects plug-in I am using only works with the old version of PowerProducer on my laptop. AND my CD burner broke last week (I have one on order but I have NO patience) so I had to transferr everything in 128M chunks with a USB stick AND it would get hot and refuse to be recognised so I would have to wait till it cooled down. What a HUGE pain. OK so now about 4 hours later everything is back on the video computer. Time to finish this ...

Last night I edited what I had then realised I could add the last camera's footage and added 2 more tracks. Then my computer decided that was too much video so I started to edit a bit more. I was going to get just a bit more footage when I just got too impatient and put it up. I spent the rest of the day updating everything and made a comprehesive DVD for us guys containing all 14 videos. Pretty happy.

Although I want to stay away from video editing for at least a couple of weeks. We did shoot a bit of our practice from last weekend. We managed to get Silver, Creep and Buried Alive. Unfortunately I fucked up Silver & Creep, and Jordan's guitar was out of tune for Buried Alive, so I won't be showing any of this footage. However it does give me much pride in seeing (back to back) the two incarnations on Softbox. Mark I was shaky at best. Unsure, not confident, and simply bad at it's worst. Mark II has a feel of authority, and a professional look, even when mistakes are made, it's almost as if we fix it, and move on as if it never was. And HEAVY! The live version of Silver makes the studio version sound like Justin Bieber. I can't wait to make people hear this!

We taped last weeks practice as well, but Todd has it on his computer. I will soon be working on a video for something off of the album Interesting. Also soon I will have to go through the hours (days!!) worth of video shot from making the CD. Unfortunately the first 8 months were not taped, but at least a year and a bit was. All I know is it will be a large undertaking.

So I kinda jumped ahead a bit and started working on a video for Spiral, but the more I did, the more I realized I wanted some new footage of the band playing. So I will leave that for now. Todd has assured me we will do a video for Intersting after the CD release. That's good because I already have a template for it and it is just waiting for footage. In the meantime I put together a short video I called Proselytism that I was thinking I would play at the CD release party. But after the reactions I got from the sneek peak I think it will be over alot of peoples heads and they will find it boring. I am still toying with the idea of playing it after the show. I also roughed together some video to play while we are playing, I'm not sure how well this will work but you know me I'm going to try it anyway.

So the video Proselytism never got played at the CD release but I did play some video stuff while we were playing. I quickly edited the footage from the CD release and put up Interesting from the show. The sound isn't the greatest, but it's there. Soon we will work on the video for Interesting.

I brought the cameras to the Paintabll paradise gig but forgot to turn them all on. So There was just the one camera for that event. For the gig at the Friendship center I set up 3 cameras and actaully got footage from all of them. I had a camera stage left one stage right and one near the back of tha hall. Unfortunalely the camera at the back of the hall onlt got the first half hour. Then when the lights went out the two side cameras were virtually black, so there isn't alot of usable footage but i am editing it together anyway. I am about halfway but it will have to wait i am just too tired to go any further.

When we played at th.e friendship center I brought the 3 cameras again, set them up and actually turned them all on this time. The camera on the front of stage only taped the first half hour. And from about halfway through the first song to the fourth song there are no lights and in the dim light all I got was literally black footage. So disappointed. I edited together what I had. I put Spiral from that show up on Youtube.

I have finally managed to get everyone behind the camera and have edited Interesting into a video. I have one other idea that I would like to incorperate into the video. But I'm not sure I'm going to have time to film it or edit it in. I guess if I don't have anything else by friday I will put up what I have.
