Editing is akin to weaving…

…especially when you use something like Final Cut. Me, I use FC Express. Most of the goodies at a fraction of the cost.

Right now I’m working on a battle – good ole bboyz in each others’ faces, dancing their hearts out.

Done it before, but this time I wanted to shove the dancers from each team into each other…so I’m spinning boxes, sliding images…and rendering like crazy.

If you take a gander at the timeline above, you’ll see that I’m up to three video and six audio tracks. And keeping that of what is where and what I’m placing next can be a nightmare.

See…I have a vision. It involves video juxtaposed in a fight against other video and sound battling with both. My goal is to recreate the mood of a bboyz battle (aka break dancing). And that required clashing images and discordant sound. As with weaving, there are many threads. And not just audio/video. There’s the continuum of the timeline/story…there’s what’s there and what’s implied. There’s memories of past battles and future battles. Tying all of those thread together into something coherent is gonna be a battle unto itself.

Below is a hour’s worth of work. Thirty-three second done. Gonna be a long weekend, but I hope the final effort is worth watching.
