The Broquet vid

Posted by Lokman Salikoon

Can't ask for much for a 1 days worth of video editing ( to be exact, 4 hours). After hearing that they want the final piece on Saturdayy to be sent to India for thier automobile exhibition show ( much like the Dreamcars we had previously), i decided to get a start on the production. Then the unthought happened:

1) My computer at home wouldn't recognise any video device in its Firewire port.
2) It was 6pm in the evening and the only place i could think of is to go back to my old office at Kallang to extract the footage from the cam.
3) Much to my surprise, when i open the door, my good old compter that served me well while i was in VML was gone! It was a mess everywhere and my 1st thought was that the place was robbed. How in the world am i going to do my job?? ( note my absence of depair of the loss of property..) Much to my relief, after calling up Joe, I found out that it was just relocated to the next room for security purpose. Since i didn't have the keys to the room, i had to wait for 45mins for Joe's dad to come back from dinner.
5) All went well, but unbeleivably, i didn't bring along the appropriate software and files for me to work on. Well, at least i could get the footage out and bring it home to edit. Better working late at home then late working in a creepy industrial area all alone.

Anyway, from then on, all went well. After 4 hours of refreshment on Adobe Premiere and working it out, churning the final product, i finally produced it and slept at 4am. Having to wake up at 9am didn't help either but it was fine.

Joe picked me up soon after and headed back to Kallang to set-up and wait for the arrival of our client. Thank goodness they were a laid-back friendly bunch and soon by 1:30pm, we were done.


Anyway, As you might have seen above, the 1min vid i did for them. Click on it to rev it up. And don't laugh alrite...i'm no video editor award winner.
