Finally, after nearly 2 years of technical problems and overall procrastination, I’ve finally edited my footage from December 2009/Summer 2010 into “A Tour Of Detroit’s Ghetto: Part 4”. It’s officially done and posted on youtube. Enjoy!
Finally, nearly 2 years after most of it was filmed, I have gotten around to getting this video done. As mentioned before, I had some issues with my new computer, and was not able to transfer the footage from my ancient camcorder on to my hard drive. Well, I could transfer it, but the quality was shit. A few weeks ago I visited a buddy of mine who transferred the footage onto an external HDD using his computer and this worked, the quality of the footage was completely intact.
I have just finished editing the whole video and it looks great, I think you will all like it. One thing I did this time around was try to pack in as many clips as possible, and minimize time that is wasted from excessively long scenes, and sped up slow moving shots. I have a few final touches to make, and then it will be uploaded to youtube and posted here. So keep an eye out for it in the next day or two!
I just logged into my youtube account and realized that my original Detroit ghetto video, “A Tour Of Detroit’s Ghetto”, has reached 1 million views! To be honest, I haven’t been keeping up with my youtube videos or this blog as much as I used to, but I thought that 1 million views is worthy of an update here. Here’s a link to the video, but if you follow this blog at all, you’ve already seen it.
I just wanted to give you guys an update on the next Detroit Ghetto video. The truth is, I haven’t even transferred the video from my camcorder to my computer yet. The last few months have been a blur with the death of my mother and now a cross-country move is fast approaching. I am in the process of selling my house in Florida and will be moving back to the Detroit area in mid April of this year. Hopefully this move will be as temporary as possible, I don’t want to have to be up there any longer than I have to. I love the Michigan summers but the rest of the year I personally find very dismal and depressing… cold weather and gray skies for 8 months out of the year just doesn’t do it for me.
This video will get done eventually, it just hasn’t been a priority for me lately.
I will leave you with this though:
That’s right… Obama Gas”. I took these pictures while filming part 4 this past December. Only in Detroit!
