Began editing a new video to accompany my installation for the Fuller Craft Museum’s upcoming May exhibition The Perfect Fit: Shoes Tell Stories. The raw footage was shot by videographer Abby Sternberg, and I am editing with Ishu Krishna. To begin the day, I did not have the footage in the correct format to digitize and begin editing, so had to beg my husband to spend his Saturday morning transporting the mini DV’s over to the editing lab. Then the hardware playing the DV refused to eject it and we are still not sure whether half my film footage has been eaten by the dreaded machine till the engineer takes a stab at it. Lastly, when we were finally set to try to work on the footage that was uploaded, after having moved to a new editing lab, the Final Cut Pro software kept shutting down on itself! Let’s hope this is not going to be typical of the video’s progression….!
