I am once again editing a video montage of photos taken over the past year. It’s a fun project but time consuming and a bit stressful. Taking more than a 1,200 photos and whittling them down to 50 or 60 so they fit into a three minute song - while mindful to use only the best and most flattering pictures but also to include at least one shot of each person. I’m also trying to sequence them logically, politically and with the ebb, flow and crescendo of the music.
Did I mention I have a fulltime job? Am in the middle of training for a marathon? Have a wife and a 4 month old baby at home?
Yeah all true. But, it’s a great party and people seem to enjoy the photos. The big mystery is what song will I use this year…
