My last post was titled “The Fire is Relit” and well the fire is relit but hardly burning. Well that’s not really true, we have the desire just can’t seem to finish. Something that my sort of girlfriend may not agree with. Is that too personal? Meh, I don’t really care.
About three months have gone by and we finally finished our most recent film, which by the way is just a fancy word for digital video. Daniel and I have been working on our most recent pretentious installment. As many of you may know our creative minds have churned out such “clever” films as Sole Release, Henry, and Harry Shits His Pants. All internet masterpieces in their own right.
So as the finishing touches were being made on the film, using my trusty Avid Media Composer, which mind you took way too long as after owning the software for over a year I still haven’t quite mastered, we got a little stuck. Not on anything important really though. Not the color correction, not the sequence of clips, not the audio levels, but the all important title. I had originally titled the film “Daydream” and it seemed fitting. However, Daniel was there and the title was not nearly clever enough. It had to be super pretentious, different, and special. It had to reflect the mystified views of the protagonist. Did I say clever? I mean remember we brought you a film titled Sole Release about somebody losing their shoes. Get it?
After quite a bit of deliberation and questions, mostly about how to center a title in the most advanced non-linear editing system on earth, we came to a decision on the title……
……DAEDRYM……Get it? Yes? Fucking awesome, you’re smart. No? Well then one of us is an idiot and honestly it’s probably us.
