I Should Be Working!

I spent yesterday waiting for it to be over. Although it wasn’t a terribly challenging day, I was completely washed-out after an exhausting rehearsal on Wednesday evening. It wasn’t the singing so much as lack of air-conditioning that did me in! A room that was barely big enough for the one-hundred-and-twenty of us and had no useful ventilation. Ugh! Sweat running down my legs and arms. Ugh!!

Chatting to John M last night, it appears he’s after buying himself a video camera and was asking me about our one. I think maybe when we get back from Turin I’ll make time to do some video again. Luther from the Chorus gave me a long anticipated CD with photos of this year’s Pride Parade on that I am planning to edit into my footage of the event so I can upload a half-decent short to YouTube and maybe the Chorus website. I was also reminded last week that we still owe Brett’s dad a copy of the photographs and video footage from his trip over here. It would be kind of nice to get that to him ahead of us travelling out for Thanksgiving…

I am now really looking forward to Turin; both musically and socially it’s going to be a busy, but enjoyable, few days. My only promise to myself is not to drink nearly as much as I did at the aftershow party in Paris. I can make a perfectly good fool of myself without the assistance of alcohol!

I have video footage of pride from our float if that's any good to you L...I'm in two minds whether to take the video toTurin. I film, but never get round to editing it. It's a sony dvd cam. I'm thinking maybe about buying a HD video, on the basis it might be easier to edit?

The good thing with the DVD is I can just put the disc into my DVD/HD recorder, burn it onto the HD and then copy onto DVD...but with no editing.

That would be great, thank you! To be honest, I'd rather have a full three minutes of video, but I don't have enough decent footage to cover the soundtrack so if you could let me have a copy of yours that would be much appreciated.

As for which format to use, I think really editing is editing. How easy it is will really depend on the software you use; you're still going to have to upload the footage to your PC for editing whether you use a DVD or a miniHD device...

See you in Torino!
