After my first entire day of editing with Final Cut, I am drained. The sheer volume of footage that can be taken in one morning’s time is overwhelming. It is hard to pin down a focal point when the subject is as broad as “go watch bike messengers in McPherson square.” Alas, I think I found a story, and managed to edit a decent clip. That was of course after about an hour of sheer panic around 10:30. The intense amounts of coffee probably had something to do with it though.
Oddly enough I am looking forward to working more with video. Now that I know I can put together a basic piece, I think I will only advance from here. It is a good feeling.

Side note: happy birthday to YiYi, Dan and Karina. I look forward to celebrating with you all this weekend and relieving some stress.
