Need sleep, contemplating

October 22, 2008

Ever sit down and wonder about life?  Wonder what’s next, what the duties are that you must complete, and how you are to achieve those goals?  I do.

I wonder about the future, my life, who I am and who I will be.  I contemplate how I can better accomplish my goals, I consider what I am required to do, what I have volunteered for and what must be completed first.  And in all this, I wish and dream and wonder.

So here I am, a soul in the wind of time, seeking what I want to find and secretly knowing what I must end up resolving upon.

But, in a way I am encouraged.  Encouraged at who I am right now, and what the future might hold; what I can be now and tomorrow… the potential of a dreams fulfilled in full blossom.

And, then once again, I am here.  I am responsible for my actions, my ways, my thoughts and beliefs.  I must choose what I will do, I must choose what I will become, I must choose what to do with what is ahead.  Not that I must decide whether or not I want to be a soloist singer and songwriter, a 3D animator and CG designer, or a popular novel author, but that I must choose whether I will seek these dreams or God first.  Yes, God.

Just encouraged, hoping, wishing for the future, and hoping that it will all turn out as well as my dreams fortell… that my dreams will not turn into nightmares, and that in everything I do, I will first find God as my true friend.

Anyhow, that’s a taste from the waterspout.

God bless, friends!

P.S. Found out about a screenwriting template (someone told me about it,) for Open Office Writer.  I already use Celtx for my scriptwriting, but then again, what’s the harm of trying another possible software solution?  Here goes nothing… oh, btw, NaNoWriMo is slowly, but surely, approaching.  IT IS COMING! AHHHHHH! … >wanting to complete first novel, or at least get more progress on it before NaNoWriMo 08 starts< … a thought: what if I took all of my life as a NaNoWriMo?  Concentrating my efforts on one project at a time and completing it with the mindset that I will not leave it till my goal is reached… what then?  I might get really stressed out always living like that, but on the other hand, it’s possible I would complete my tasks much quicker… anyhow, but I believe it may call for a whole life-style change-over.  God bless! -b

P.P.S. Not exactly set on what we are going to do with “ITL” (“Is This Love?”) right now.  However, I hope to make some of my own, personal films sometime soon.  Nature clips set to music, thoughtful vid with voice over, crazy ideas and a mix of ketchup thrown in… anyhow, don’t know exactly, but hopefully I will make time for creating some personal films… complete with custom music!  God bless, -b

Swirling in the Oceano

September 6, 2008

I am unsure what path my future will take… where will I go, what will I do?  My camcorder/editing situation is not at it’s brightest, and I am heavily considering returning the camcorder, the JVC Everio GZ-HD7, because it shoots to HD and saves to .tod.   Premiere Pro 1.0, my current NLE, is less than desirable as well, because I have had a/v out of sync troubles with it.  Who knows what will be the solution?  God does.

A friend recommended this camera (the friend was joking btw,)

Check out the RED camera:

I have looked into Final Cut Pro as well, (or Final Cut Studio,) and it looks promising.  But I have not done all my research.  I am pretty sure I can convert my files through Cyberlink BD solution, with PowerDirector, to FullHD, HD SP, or SD (720×480.)  So, converting with HD is possible, but editing is still a problem.  So, the different problems stack on eachother and the tower of cards falls again and again as I pull out a card from the below.

So, with all these options, ideas, hopes, possibilities – my future – and other’s desires, I am swirling in an ocean of choices, hoping to find my way out.  Oh God, send an albatross.

Who knows what will happen next?  I ask for your prayer, and I look foward to the days when I will be holding the camcorder in hand, acting and filming with others, editing, premiering, posting…

God bless and thanks for listening.

P.S. I do not ask for sympathy.  I do not ask for donations.  I do not require your help.  I humbly request prayer and understanding, and greatly appreciate any suggestions or ideas you have to give.  Thanks.

Not sure what’s ahead

August 25, 2008

As the days pass by and progress is made in various areas, one may wonder what happened to Minosa Films – like, where are the films?!

Well, I suppose everything has a journey.  And each journey has it’s pilgrims, and once in a while, you run across a hero.  Well, I am a pilgrim.  And I need to do my part, and my part is not only the technical side of making sure we have a camcorder that will work, but scripts to make movies from.  So, I need to write scripts.  We have one script for a film titled “Is This Love?”, and I plan to make revisions upon it (basically add to/and or rewrite it.)  I think it would be wise to have more than one script on hand, so, I need to write! 😉

Recently I found out about a neat project called Morevna Project.  Check it out here: morevnaproject.org.  I am considering contributing to it.  From the website:

The main goal of Morevna Project is creation of full-lengthened anime movie, utilizing Open Source software only.

Other goals:

  • Promotion of Open Source software and its ideology.
  • Testing and improving existing Open Source products by giving appropriated feedback to developers and community.
  • Validate Open Source tools as suitable for creation of professional good-looking animation.
  • Provide content for other artists to learn from or to re-use, including documentation and tutorials

Main production tools:

Also, check out this neat song by Staffan Svahn, called Red Hills.

And now back to what I need to do.  God bless!
