Under a Hot Carolina Roof

This weekend marked the first block time in weeks that I did not have to work any of my three jobs. I had one goal in my mind, not to leave my house for the entire weekend.
On Saturday, I suceeded by not getting out of my pajamas all day. On Sunday, I played racquetball for a few hours to let my heart know there is more to this world than working round the clock. The rest of my weekend, I devoted to learning how to operate a movie making software program without interruption. I completed what had stayed fresh on my mind for months. I set out to produce my first movie about my family's summer vacation to the Outer Banks.
From an inventory of 400 still pictures and dozens of raw video clips, I produced a short film called Five Families under a Hot Carolina Roof. It took me a total of 26 hours to manufacture 15 quality minutes that tell a themed story complete with soundtrack, special effects and narrative.
The moral here is that while every picture tells a story, getting that captured on film in a linear sequence is a different story all together. I now sing the praises of every filmmaker in the movie business. Now that Hummada Hummada Productions has finished his first short film, all I have left to do is make 19 DVD copies at a burn cycle of 40 minutes each. Then I got great Christmas gifts to give out to my family members.
