I spent some time this week editing video and dialog tracks. I love me some video editing, but the voice work continues to be a tough learning experience. Besides practicing my ability to speak well, a sleuth of practical issues are always cropping up.
Weird buzzing noises caused by an interference of some kind, coupled with a less than adequate recording environment have been the latest culprits. I think I may need a better mic, but surely there's a work around? Regardless, the point is that every new endeavor is bumpy ride, but of course totally worth it.
Next week I'll be releasing the most ambitious video essay I've yet created. I'm practicing up for a video I conceived last summer, but didn't feel my skills were good enough to tackle. Hopefully I'll learn enough from these video essays to make the game analysis that I've been cooking up in the back of my mind.
