Fun of SAM
Having dogs is like having children. The second one never gets as much attention as the first one. You have gone overboard with the first one and by the time the second one comes along you no longer feel like documenting everything.
I didn’t want that to happen to Samson.
Although Mc, our frist ridgeback, naturally ends up in front of the camera more due to his persona and expressive eyes, Samson definitely has a personality of his own, which is worth capturing.
In this video you will see Sam the very first time we saw him, his first day at our house, Mc’s impression of the new guy and also wondering if he is going to stay. The second half of the video is footage from our trips to Michigan, where our dogs have a blast.
I hope you enjoy this piece. It is rather random, but there is bit of a story to it. There are some pretty funny moments, as well as some shots that I personally enjoy from an aesthetic standpoint.
I started editing this shortly after seeing ‘Moneyball’ – hence the inspiration for ‘The Mighty Rio Grande’
The first song is ‘Baby’ by Bon Iver
This was the first project I edited in Premiere. I didn’t miss FCP one bit. Colored it within Premiere using RGB curves, which I know isn’t ideal. Looking forward to CS6 and Speedgrade. All shot on a 5D2. A lot of the footage is rather shaky… but it is the second child after all 🙂
