If you are like me, you are beginning a new school year of teaching this week! I enjoyed a two-week break prior to this week, which provided some much-needed time off as well as some time to focus on some fun side projects that have been on my to-do list. Let me tell you about one of those projects.
One of my adult students has a background in video. He sold me a used copy of Final Cut Pro, which is a program kind of like Photoshop except for video files. There is a huge learning curve involved with learning how to use Final Cut Pro, as I discovered. I decided to create a “studio trailer” video of sorts, showing various photos of my students to give a sense of what my studio is about. It’s not a perfect video, but I am happy with the results and enjoyed learning the basics of video editing through this project. I posted this video on my studio website and facebook page for my students/parents to enjoy.
Note: You might notice that this video shows my old house, before our recent move twenty minutes away. I still need to collect more photos that show the new house/studio. Maybe I’ll make another video a year from now. I decided to think of this video as celebrating the past three years living and teaching in Ohio. End of one era, beginning of the next!
