First up is the link for this weeks Shape of a Box vid click here to read with text of the poems in the side bar or watch below: (Feel free to share and link to this vid)
Now here I should, once again, have my video for the week. And last week I lost my video because of the audio failure that I recounted previously so I won’t get into that. And this week? More aggravation.
I was all excited because K had found me a software that could convert .mov to .avi files of any size. I had a way to convert files under 200 MB, roughly under 2 minutes, but I wanted to be able to just make a video, convert it and then edit it as I had with my old camera and/or K’s video camera. But, alas, the conversion worked – sort of.
The conversion happened but the 1st half had messed up color and screeching audio. The second half worked so I decided to just keep it because it was me reading from some old poems I found from high school, but when I uploaded it to YouTube only 1/2 of that video actually worked.
So there I was with 1/4 of what I started with and I gave up. I’ll need to make decisions about future videos. I think I’ll just go back to what I originally did and not edit my poem footage. I’ll just talk to the camera and upload it and then I don’t have to worry about time which makes me rush and gives me the freedom to make errors. I’ll be doing more of a play instead of a film
So since this did not work out I’ll post a poem from YouTube. Enjoy and hopefully next week I’ll have more poetry/video reading success:
