It’s taken a lot of hard work and a lot of time but I have finally finished my film for the promotion of ‘WhaleFest 2011’ and I have to say I am very proud of it. I have never actually edited a promotional video before so to take on something that big for the first time was a challenge but it was definitely worth it as I feel as though I have accomplished a lot.
Once I’d had it checked over by Codie, I burnt it to disk and packaged it all up ready to send to Stephanie St. James a few days ago. I am ecstatic that it’s finished now as it has taken a considerable amount of time to make sure it really shows off the festival but at the same time, in an odd way I’m also going to miss it because it has been a big part of my life for the last couple of months. Having said that, I feel as though I have done the best I can and I think that Dylan and Ian will be pleased with. I have had a little bit of feedback from Dylan and Stephanie who said that they do really like it so overall I think that it has been quite a success.
All the videos have now been sent off apart from Sam’s who has yet to make sure that the music is copyright free. It is a bit annoying as I did ask for them ages ago and did remind them about the importance of the music being royalty free but that hasn’t come across yet. Still, I really am pleased with what I have seen so far as they have really shown off ‘WhaleFest’ within a short space of time. Hopefully, Sam won’ t take too long to get these sorted and I can send the final few off to the organisers because visually they are perfect for it. At the moment, they do have Holly’s which are already on their website ‘WhaleFest 2012’ so take a look at them now as they really are very good.
So ‘WhaleFest 2011’ editing is pretty much done now and I hope the videos really show the festival for how it was when we were there. It’s taken a while and been really quite tough at times but its always been an interesting challenge and I have enjoyed it. I’m sure ‘WhaleFest 2012’ will make just as big a splash as ‘WhaleFest 2011’ and I hope it is as successful as it deserves to be.
