I am still working on the vid of us recording Interesting. But it the total opposite. It is taking forever because it is the most boring thing to watch, and there are hours and hours of it. My guess is I have about 50 hours of video. I have sort of condensed the first 9 disks but there are 13 to go. I'm starting to regret starting this, because now I have to finish it.

Finished the Making Interesting Video. What a pile of crap. Hours of absolutely nothing intersting. Thank god Todd has a sence of humor and jokes around a bit, otherwise I would have thrown the whole thing in the trash. As usual I made 2 versions. The first is just with the songs off of the album, the other has bits of some of the other 13 songs. The first version is about 1 hour and 10 minutes and the second is about 2 hours and 20 minutes. I would like to try and make an even more condensed version for youtube, but we'll see. I'm sick of these clips!

Finally the stars aligned and we spent a whole afternoon shooting video. I had bought a large green screen, but when we set it up it was quite apparent that I couldn't get it lit uniformly. I did think it quite ironic that what we actually needed were softboxes! Undeterred, I continued. I mean it just took too long to get all 3 of us together! I thought the green backdrop would work for most of what I had in mind anyway. Once we started Todd felt that there was a real possibility his nieghbors would complain about the noise, so I felt there wasn't time to hang the black backdrop and just kept going with song #2 and 3. We did 2 takes of each song, with 3 cameras going. Then I did 2 takes of both Jordan and Todd, more close up. I would get my own close ups later at home. So it was a big set-up and a big tear down the whole shoot was from about 2 till 5. By the time I had unloaded the van, I got called into work. Later when I got home I started to put some of the video on the computer.

The next day after work I captured the rest of the video and converted the MP4s (from the flip cameras) to something Vegas could work with. I set up downstairs and got 2 takes of myself, and converted that footage. I opened the file for Spiral which already had the bug footage, and the spiralling dirt footage. It also had a temp track of us practicing Spiral which I immediately erased. I loaded in the camera in from of Jordan first, then the one in front of Todd. I added the 2 takes from the front and edited those together. I then added 1 close up take of Jordan and one close up take of Todd. I added myself in last. I had some wierd colour correction thing going on and I tried to keep it fairly uniform for the different cameras. Then I started rendering and hit a roadblock. The video would crash at 4.40! So I tried removing footage, changing the output specs. I tried rendering it almost 30 times!!!! Every version crashed at 4.40. I finally tried rendering another video and when it too crashed at 4.40 I knew that Vegas had been corrupted.
It took forever to re-install because apparently I don't read well. Then I rendered version 666 and it played back fine, but there was more fine tuning to do, the final version is 777.

I decided to not upload it till then next day. I still had to convert it to flash and I was tired. It was sept 11.

Both Second Look and Softbox are from the big video shoot but didn't become videos for a while. 1 Year and 2 years after respectively. I was working on one for Buried Alive but I need a few more elements to finish and then I think that will be it for the Interesting album videos.
