Inspired by the power of FIVE

Wow what an adventure in editing. This is my first attempt at video production and it was way more work than I expected. All the shots I wanted vs all the shots I actually got, well lets just say there was a big difference.I wanted to have a group of five , playing five card stud, and someone wins with with five fives. I know there are only four fives per deck of cards, but that was not the issue. Getting five people to get together for an hour that matches the time I am available was the biggest issue. So that idea got minimized to dealing out the cards, which worked out okay. Another idea was to have my little one to roll five dice and get five fives in a roll. That was a long time waiting for a roll that never came. She rolled fours, threes, twos multiple times but no fives. I tried to edit a clip together of a roll then before they stopped completely put in five fives, but that had too much shift to look good so it got left out. I did enjoy spending time getting multiple shots of the same set up with the thought of editing them together. Different angles really make a difference in the idea and feel of the overall video. Most did not make the cut, two minutes is really short when you start putting 50 plus clips together.

    Chad, I really liked this. It moved well and kept my attention. I liked the hiding of the “5” as sort of a “where’s waldo” thing. It reminded me of the [AS] that’s hidden on Adult Swim. The photography was nice, too and the clips moved well. Nice job!
