I am continuing to tread water with only the slightest ribbon of land visible on the distant horizon, lol. The project I’m working on at present (a short campaign video) has a fast-approaching deadline, and I must have been out of my mind to volunteer. Then again, that’s probably how all this came about: I wasn’t thinking with my mind, I was thinking with my heart, which saw a need and wanted to help. And I must confess I thought it would be fun. I guess it has been if you consider “fun” learning editing software as you go. Motion and Final Cut are so different from iMovie, what possessed me to think the jump between them wouldn’t be difficult? ~sigh~ Live and learn.
I wonder, if I’d have known how hard this would be, would I have volunteered? Probably not. Which is why He doesn’t show me what I’m getting into most times. He knows I will get the job done. I just don’t like that it won’t be as good as I’d like it to be. It could be better if I had more time. But at least it will get done, and I hope he’s happy with it.
I am thankful for the folks at Global (one in particular) who are helping out. I wouldn’t be able to do it without them, and I am learning, not just how to use software and put together a video, but how faithful God is to bring help when I need it and lead me to press the right one of a hundred buttons to make it do what it has to. I will go back in Monday to finish it up, hopefully. Methinks if there is a next time that I will request at least ten days to do it! In the meantime, I will be watching some tutorials and learning more about the software. It’s like anything else, the more you prepare the smoother things go!
