I've been toying with the idea of making videos for this blog for a while now. I actually bought my camera (Canon 550D, if you're wondering) with the thought in mind that one day I might make a step towards my dream job: documentary making. Being a bit of a lazy coward, things don't seem to be moving in that direction right now, but I still itch to do something as I feel like the skills (filming and editing) that I acquired during my student days are quickly evaporating.
This video below just shows how rusty I've become and this realisation makes me very sad. I can't count how many times I face-palmed at myself and the stupid mistakes I made while shooting, during the editing process.
I had to use what I had on hand on my computer which was Windows Live Movie Maker and it made the process even more painful. If anyone knows about a better software that I could download for free online, please, please let me know, I'll be forever grateful.
I think I need some sort of handle for my camera as well so it's less wobbly. I hope that I won't make you seasick and that you'll nonetheless enjoy Dublin in its christmassy splendour.
