Full Moon Muse Madness – The Reveal
Stella came through! Pete's Muse saw to it that my full moon respite was, outwardly, fairly quiet as she gently prodded me to try something completely new and different, something that I've been intending to try for awhile. It's only about a minute long, but whew... it took a LOT of editing. That is, you know, after all of the digital images were completed to satisfaction. Not having ever used iMovie (or anything similar), there was some time involved in uncovering the little quirks of the program, but overall, it's fairly simple. Of course, I used only stills and no actual video but now that I have tripped through the process, I have a whole stack of Luke clips awaiting some iMovie magic.
Watch out. ;)
For a larger format, you can view 'Gestation' directly on You Tube (mouse over the lower right corner of the video screen and click on the You Tube icon that appears). Sadly, full screen format doesn't translate quite as well with embedded videos. It isn't terrible but not as crisp as the original, and so a little disappointing to me. If there's a trick to this, I haven't yet discovered it. But hey, at least I got it this far.
Pete also had a clever rendezvous with my Muse. A perfectly delightful must-read, complete with a nod to chocolate.
All in all, an interesting and enjoyable experience. Truly inspired. Pete's Muse reminded me that sometimes we just need to jump in with both feet and embrace whatever comes. Thanks, Stella and Quinn! Other results are here... check back at this link for more as they are posted.
