1 a.m.

Waiting patiently for well over 3 hrs now, I have been exporting my recent video project from the computer to minDV tape which if you are unaware is all in realtime and takes forever. By writing to tape I will be able to clear up some Hard Drive space for future projects. Gondoliers my current project is taking a wopping 117 some gigabytes of space.

Gondoliers (current): This project was a DVD creation of Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta "The Gondoliers" put on by a local Homeschool group I, being a graduate from this group came back this year to video tape, organize, and direct the making of this DVD which was made available to the families.

China Students Illinois Visit (future): A friend of mine was over in China teaching english to chinese students. She wanted them to be able to come over and experience the United States first hand, she set it all up and brought a small group over for a couple weeks. They are doing a load of things while over here and video taping it all. They then wish to hand off the tape to me for the creation of a DVD. I have till tuesday night to work on the project. and then it MUST be finished and delivered.

Welcome! The intent of this blog is to let people into my life who have till this point, been deprived of such a pleasure. "lol". Really I am working on several project related to print, film, and photography. I thought I would pass on the things in which I have learned through these projects to all of you who might be interested. I am a currently a Graphic Arts major which I have been enjoying immensely thus far. I also have a growing interest in film and video production and have gotten private projects here and there from friends.

In connection with this type of work I spend a lot of time on my computer so I think I'll start by telling you what I have. I have a Apple Dual 1.8Ghz Powermac G5 with 1.5 GB of RAM (which helps with all the multi-tasking). I just recently aquired my third hard drive to total out at 660 gigabytes of space. All that space is necessary for the large video files I store on my computer during projects. Anyway the only part in which my computer is lacking is in the display. I currently have a 19in CRT which was given to me. Anyway this is where it all happends... at least for me.
