Though May Be Side Effects is an old video - by my standards, anyway! - this is a new version. (The main difference is that it's nearly a minute shorter.)

BTW, for the last several months I've tended not to post about  the various screenings where my films have been shown (mostly because I don't want to seem like I'm bragging), but on the off-chance anyone's interested, here are the details for a few coming up in the near-ish future:

28 February, 2012: "When Tickling Goes Wrong, part one" is being shown at CineMe, The Tobacco Factory, Raleigh Road, Bedminster, Bristol BS3 1TF.

29 February: "When Tickling Goes Wrong, part one" and "Reflection of Love" are being shown at the Smoke Yourself Slim Film Festival, The Winchester, Essex Road, London, N1 8LN.

1  March, 2012: "If Dolphins Had Day Jobs" is being shown at Kino London, Vibe Live, the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, London, E1. 

8 March, 2012: "A Guide to Safe Dining" and "Dolphin in a Coma" are being shown at "Roots to Shoots" at the Royal Spa Centre in Leamington Spa.

15 March, 2012: The same double bill of "Dining" and "Dolphin" are being shown as part of the Anime 3 animation showcase, CineMe,  Bocabar, The Paintworks, Bath Road, Arnos Vale, Bristol BS34 3EH .

27 March, 2012: "Reflection of Love" is being shown at CineMe Bristol (these CineMe screenings apparently move around from venue to venue, so I don't know the address for this one yet).

4 April, 2012: "A Guide to Safe Dining" is being shown at the Movie Bar, the Caroline of Brunswick, Ditchling Road, Brighton.

As some of you already know, I've been struggling to teach myself Final Cut Pro for a while now, and a new version has apparently just come out. Which I haven't tried myself, and hope I will not have to try for some time to come; I'm at an age where I hate learning new things!

Some of you may be aware I've been trying to teach myself Final Cut Pro off and on for a few months now, so - though the video below is funny - I must admit I also find the content very disturbing. Why oh why do they have to change Final Cut Pro just as I'm finally starting to get the hang of it?

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!

 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.

My latest feeble attempt at editing. I shot this in the South Bank undercroft late on a Sunday night (after the skateboarders had all gone home and there was no one around except for one rather forlorn-looking hoodie).

A slideshow of photos of the start of the 2010 Gumball Rally in Pall Mall, London. (Basically just some snapshots taken on my old phone as I happened to be passing by, which I've finally edited together, nearly a year later!)

Not only am I an absolute beginner at editing, I'm the worst kind of beginner who's continually inflicting their early attempts on other people. 

And here's the latest:

Still struggling to learn Final Cut Pro, largely because I have an idiot for a teacher! ;)

Anyway, here's my latest attempt at gluing some bits and pieces together.

This one is a complete cheat. Trying to teach myself Final Cut Pro is a bit of a struggle - Brandon says it's because I'm getting old and my short term memory is going (thanks, love!) - but the truth is I've never been the techie type and nothing done on a computer comes naturally to me. (And also I'm getting old, and my short term memory is going.)

Anyway, back to the cheat: the following is just a collection of some not-very-good pics I took on my phone (my previous phone, not my shiny new iphone 4) saved as an iphoto slideshow and then set to some music I got from the same website I used the last time:

My motivation for cheating was that I have such a huge assortment of random clips it's taking me ages just to go through them, let alone try to organise them, and staring at that unfinished mess of raw footage had become so disheartening, I just wanted to get something - anything! - done and dusted quickly. 

And so, in my desperation to get something finished, this is what I did last night:
