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.

Now

July 17, 2008

Well, the camcorder has arrived!  Praise God!

It is a JVC Everio GZ-HD7, and I tested it out this evening by recording a message given by Dr. Narendra Singh, and also interviewing him personally afterwards.  I recorded some additional footage of people’s conversations with Dr. Singh, etc., but I will most likely not be posting that.  I hope to post both the message and the interview online sometime soon.  (I recorded them in SP, though sometime in the future I may do most of my filming in FullHD.)  Oh, and Dr. Singh said I did a good job, and that he would be praying for me.  😉  Praise God for that!

Praise God!

I hope to start doing some film making, inteviews, and more, but I can’t forget to do my other duties in life, or forget my talents.

Well, I guess that’s all for now!  Going to be trying out my camera in nature, filming Green Bank, working on film pre-production, and brainstorming film ideas!

God bless,

Thanks for listening! (and I always appreciate your prayers.)

P.S. Dr. Narendra Singh believes he will die as a martyr (for Jesus Christ.)  May God protect him till his time comes, and may many more come to Jesus before, and after, that time.

The calm before the storm – or a passing breeze

June 14, 2008

In the throes of today and mystery of tomorrow, I labor to engineer the beginning of a new day.

I am sorry for my neglect of posting, I have been busy, as the previous sentence implies.  I hope to pursue filming soon – but there are a few obligations and requirements I need to get done first – an unfinished project, something due soon, et cetera.

So, I am sorry, and I am looking forward to the days ahead (and wishing they be bright,) but as each day passes life seems to run along the river to a watershed – and who knows what happens then.

But I wish you all the best, and hope to spend some days in the near future filming our infinite dreams!

Most respectfully,

-B

P.S. And as for the title of this post – well, I’ll let you figure that one out.

I’ve been brainstorming some other ideas, and I will make sure to let you know when the new blog is up, broadcasting our new name! Thanks for listening,

Script Ideas Welcome

I’ve been brainstorming on some film ideas, but I have yet to write the scripts once a feasible idea comes. So, keep praying for me that some great, workable stories will arise and that I will be able to write the scripts well. From there, prayer for the preparations, and once we actually start the filming.

Thanks, God bless!

P.S. Script ideas are welcome, so, if you have any suggestions, please send them straight away to sognofilms@gmail.com. Thanks!

P.P.S. Three scripts wanted: 1 action, 1 drama, and either another drama, or something else.

Welcome to Sogno Films!

Sogno Films will be making some short films soon. Currently we are preparing for the filming work and I will be writing some scripts.

Looking forward to creating those films!

God bless
