I think I captioned this picture more than a year ago, and then completely forgot about it until it appeared on the front page of icanhascheezburger.com today.
BTW, I noticed someone put a link to this video in the comments on the cheezburger site, so I'll add it here, too. :)
For those who haven't noticed my update of an earlier post (with an embedded link to The Dealer's Club), it was shown at the Quickflick London screening on the 8th of June, 2011, where it won the Golden Quickie award. (Which means I've won some free courses and stuff, plus The Dealer's Club will be shown at Quickflick screenings in other countries.)
This wasn't made for a 48 hour challenge, but it might as well have been. It was shot on my phone in a few hours on Saturday the 7th of May, 2011, in a desperate bid to make the 9th of May deadline for submissions to QuickFlick London on the theme of "Dealer."
I spent all day Sunday editing it in Final Cut Pro (finally finishing it at eight o'clock this morning) and am once again completely exhausted and wondering why I always do these things in such a hurry. Anyway, here's my latest: written, directed and edited by someone who has absolutely no idea what they're doing.
I'm editing this on the 10th of June, 2011, to add that The Dealer's Club was shown at the Quickflick London screening on the 8th of June... where (guess what?) it won the top prize, The Golden Quickie!
The last few weeks, every time I've seen that Heineken advert, I've thought: "What is that song?" And then I've promptly forgotten about it.
Until the other day, when I finally got around to googling the bloody thing. It turns out the song on the Heineken advert is "The Golden Age" by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour.
The name of the band alone seemed like reason enough to embed the original music video here.
I shot this on my phone the other day. The sun was so bright I couldn't see what I was doing, so I just held up my phone, pointed it in the general direction of the undercroft, and basically shot blind, only discovering what - if anything - I'd shot when I got home and was able to watch it on the computer.
I'm going to have to go back sometime when it's a bit more overcast (and I can hopefully see what I'm shooting!) and - if I can overcome my shyness - maybe talk to some of the skateboarders and ask if I can shoot them properly. I think I may be turning into a skater girl. ;)
I was at the Barbican yesterday, where I happened to spot some ducks casually strolling among the crowd of people enjoying the sun on the Lakeside Terrace. I thought they were kind of cute - the ducks, I mean, not the people! - so I shot a bit of video of them on my phone and edited it in Final Cut Pro.
I changed my "theme" over on livejournal, then tried to embed my latest cheezburger front page directly, but it still did the same old thing of cutting off a chunk of the right-hand side, so I don't know what the problem is. All I know is it's been going on for more than a year and a half now.
Anyway, here's the latest tiny triumph, posted as usual from dreamwidth.
