Long long day. Thoughts after a day of editing

It’s been a long long day.. (listen to the song at bottom whilst you read đŸ™‚ If you want.)

I just spent the whole day finishing and uploading video number 17 (my special number).

‘Positive thinking in business and life | Steve Jobs reality distortion field.’

There is something so relaxing about spending your Saturday editing a well put together video that reflects your thoughts. I got it down from 15 minutes to 8 minutes and then 8 minutes to just under 6.

This video felt like a step forward in terms of my learning experience of making these videos online.

I must have watched it back about 50 times to make sure its not boring and keeps moving. For example In the ‘Perfectionism prevents progress‘ video I didn’t get to the point of what the video was actually about until 50 seconds in. In this one I get into it at 15 seconds.

I also added a contents at the start and timestamps in the description for people that come across the video and want to get to a certain part.

This is only the second video i’ve made using Final Cut Pro X after upgrading a couple of weeks back.

Starting to get used to it. The text looks so much more current than the old Final Cut Pro 7 text.

Anyway I know only a few people will be interested in this but it’ll be cool to look back on in terms of progress.

I guess we’ll see in about a month what the analytics are like for the video in terms of audience retention and engagement.

I’ll post the video in the morning when everybody wakes up.

Nathaniel GE,

See You In 5

p.s I will be using this song for an epic vlog/montage one day. So you’ll remember where its from. “p

I’ve basically been listening to it all day whilst editing.

and I love one of the last lines in this song

‘Sometimes it takes times like these to know, you’re in the right place’.

I should probably eat something now..
