MTV and special effects

Spent quite a bit of time today on the GenkiEnglishMan skits and their special effects. I was thinking they’re maybe too difficult to produce, but I updated my special effects software today and the new stuff I can do is pretty cool!! I also did the video clip for “Left and Right”. It takes several hours just to produce a couple of seconds of footage, and then the computer has to “render” the final file. So while I was doing that I was checking out MTV. They had a load of documentaries today about making pop videos. They are basically doing exactly the same thing I’m doing, but instead of a laptop and a load of software, they spend fortunes!! I’ve been worried if I can get the whole DVD done this week or not, but on MTV one person spent a whole week just shopping for the clothes in the video!! The thing is that this DVD is expected to sell as much as the average MTV type video, so I guess I don’t need to worry too much about taking so much time! Right, got to get back to my laser blast special effects!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. When I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!
