With my switch to Adobe official, I recorded a short vlog yesterday highlighting my reasons.
With the trailer for “Run” complete, I’m getting ancy. I NEED something to edit and mix so I can hone my skills for Leap 3. I realized that I never was fully happy with the trailer I did for Leap 2 so I’m putting Premiere to yet another test by importing all my footage from Leap 2 – every last take – and I’ll cut a new trailer. The import is going slow, but steady. I can live with that. I have to remind myself that I’m trying to do an online edit on a middle of the road laptop. Fortunately, once the ministry is up and going, the first two things I’m purchasing is a beastly editing/effects rig for the studio and a beefy laptop to travel with me. With the abuse I’m putting on my current laptop, I’ll be surprised if it lasts a year.
I finished the business plan for the ministry yesterday. While it was a lot of work to write, I’m very glad I did it. The budget is basically done too – all I’m waiting on is for an insurance company to get back to me with a quote for employee benefits If it’s too much, I have no problem nixing it, but I figured I might as well see what it’ll costs. Other than that though, everything looks pretty solid. I worked really hard to get exact costs when possible because I didn’t want to under estimate, or over estimate for that matter.
