Blog: The Magic of Editing… and Stuff

joseph-gordon-levitt-platesA few days ago I was about to post a blog entry about the recent adventures the project has been through. Some of this goodness included us attempting a Halloween video and planning a Black Friday video on their respective dates. You may realize now that none of those videos made it, but I would like you to know that the original guys (me, Josh, and Andrew) have gotten together a couple times during college breaks and have tried to get something done. The fact that we haven’t done something since August and have tried other times for a video with no luck has placed frustration upon us, much like Joseph Gordon-Levitt over here! Sigh…

Anyway. The reason why I didn’t bring you that post mentioned earlier is because I brought a video that I trashed back to life! On Black Friday, we got together and planned to do a “Black Friday 2″ (oh boy!), but instead we went with an idea I’ve had for a while, which ended up being our first crack at pop culture… facebook… haha! I was UBER excited to do this because I felt the real joke was something that every facebook user had experienced. We make fun of those “fan pages” that people can become a fan of that have the most ridiculous themes. Just one at the top of my head and that actually is in the video is the “I go slightly out of my way to step on a particularly crunchy-looking leaf.” I mean, I love how people actually make these and people become fans of them… I really wanted to know every little detail about you!…right. But seriously though, some of them are legit funny and there are a few that everyone can relate to which makes the whole joke even better with little to no effort. Brilliant, huh? (:

So yes, we filmed this video at the forum in Norcross (same location as ‘Wishful Thinking’) and it turned out pretty well and it was SO much fun to do, and also the fact that it was a reunion of the NintendoBoy staff, was a very fun day indeed… in fact, it was so much fun, there are bloopers at the end of the video! Yay! I said it. A new video is here, but I’m sure you’ve figured that out by now. Ha. We had soooo many clips of the first scene, and it was VERY hard to put all the best laughs in the video and still keep it under 4 minutes… but, here it is, finally! You see reader, the reason why this took a couple weeks to come out was… well ACTUALLY, this video was never scheduled for release because of some reservations I had. The biggest problem was that the audio wasn’t so great… there are some parts where the mic didn’t catch some of our witty phrases and almost rendered the clip useless, and it was also VERY cold and windy that day so the loud windy windyness makes a cameo in the video… EL OH EL! Long story short of a day of editing, I discovered that my fancy pancy video software has a feature where I can legit edit the decibles of volume (should have known, yeah yeah), so I was able to change the volume of the clips even after they were filmed… I guess that’s why they call it the magic of editing? Or does no one say that? Ohhh… well this is embarrassing! So anyway, please enjoy this long lost reunion of the NB-ers! (:
