It's FAWM-time again - February Album Writing Month. I'm at 5 songs and with 3 days to go I need to finish 9 songs. So give a me list of topics to write about- anything! I promise I will show them this time, I just got a new recorder!
And yeah, I still need to show Kit the song about the board game and slackergirl one about oatmeal (I did write them last year!).
One of the guys at the job center suggested me to some company that had a division where they made company movies (I think mostly for internal use). Yesterday I had a talk with that company, 4 people, and it was supposed to be an open conversation as they said they were interested in me because I could do both video editing and IT-related things.
So I went into the conversation and one of the guys asked me, "so video editing is something you want to do?". I said "of course!".
And that was almost the end of the conversation.
I wish it was a that easy. :P He said it was nice meeting me and that I should have a talk with the video guy, because he was the expert. He was on vacation though and I have a meeting with him next week.
The thing is, they said I should bring some of my videos to show. So this weekend I will be quickly cutting some of the interesting scenes of the short movies/trailers/documentaries I have done, but I was wondering if it would be wise to put some AMVs in between that? I was thinking of putting Corazon between it to show I can do some animation and design work as well. And maybe the Youtube clip I've found of Senpai Says to show I have made a video that can rock a crowd.
So what do you think? I still have trouble in thinking how to create a short show reel that can show what I can do with video editing though...
For FAWM (fawm.org, where the challenge is to write 14 songs in February) I actually spend most of February trying to search for new chord progressions and melodies and made 5 I think. No lyrics written for those yet. Then I went on to looking for old songs to finish, which only needed lyrics. I counted of those 19 songs. Of course I didn't those. :P
Then last week I decided to just write a bunch of short songs. I already wrote 4 short songs and then in the last 2 days I wrote another 10, where the last 5 in the last 3-4 hours. Those are probably the most crappy songs I've ever written! I thought it was better to spend more time to the songs which already were half written, instead of rushing to complete them.
So I reached the goal for FAWM! 14 songs written in February! Four of them have topics suggested by Kit and Slackergirl, so we have a song about dinosaurs, cheesecake and oatmeal.
Okay, I've been surfing on the web today like every other day and this thing called "Pancake Day" keeps popping up on several sites.
Now tell me more about this Pancake Day!
