Mweelrea P2- Post Production Difficulties
The creation of my first mountain movie “Mweelrea Part 1” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hE48XGStkU0) was great fun from beginning to end. I am pleased to say that during this first week at the YouTube “box office” the statistics indicate that 170 mountain loving folk gave up five minutes each of their lives to view my offering. (I am loath to discount the fact that I have viewed the movie many times myself in an effort to “boost ratings”). Reaction has been very encouraging, especially considering the deletion of the solitary sex scene. I want to thank jackill, csd, weedavie and Kernowclimber for their kind comments. In the latter case I particularly applaud the lyrical writing and the expression of great emotion in the face of mountain beauty. We have much in common. More prosaically I confirm that the editing software used was Adobe Premiere Elements 8. It cost me around €80.00. (see adobe.com) Sadly, this fine software crashed during the editing of Mweelrea Part 2: my wife fears that P2 may yet be our Citizen Kane, an artistic triumph of enduring quality but the rock upon which we may yet perish. P2 covers that part of the Mweelrea Horseshoe that runs from the summit of Mweelrea across to Ben Bury and then round the Great Lugmore Rim (taking in the three peaks) and back to base at the Delphi Mountain Lodge. While the outbound journey (seen in Part 1) was full of hope and broad panning shots, I am afraid that the journey home shows the terrified Captain teetering on the icy ridge of the Lugmore Rim. It is not a pretty sight. The chosen music was Wagner’s Götterdämmerung and the general mood “foreboding”. Think Ingmar Bergman on a bad day. Now I am wondering if the forced re-edit might be an opportunity to perhaps lighten the musical load. A well wisher has suggested the theme from Black Beauty, but I am tempted by the more commercially attractive “Hawaii 5-0”. We shall see. Finally sincere thanks to Kernowclimber whose response alone made the entire enterprise worthwhile. As I am the “Titanic” Kernowclimber is my “Carpathia”. We are ships that almost passed in the night, but not quite. Part 2 of “Mweelrea- The Movie” is dedicated to all you good people, including weedavie to whom I now say : Vos vestros servate, meos mihi linquite mores
