Back to Work in the Middle of a Festive Week...

Image
I'd have felt lazy if I hadn't watched "The Social Network" Movie over the weekend. Review...

The movie started on a slow pace.  I expected something more exciting, something pulsating. The whole six minutes in the beginning was a squabble between Mark Zuckerberg and his ex-girlfriend, followed by draggy scenes of Mark jogging in the streets. The dialog is the exciting part and you have to pay close attention as Mark speaks really fast at times... more>

You Won't Believe What I Saw Yesterday

Image
I was on a webcast yesterday that Mike put on for Social  Media Marketing Machines and I was SHOCKED.  Mike  interviewed people that had created multiple six figure  businesses in less than a year, and you can see it too... http://videolane.com/social-media-marketing-machines-webcast/ Stories like: A mother of triplets with a half-million business while working from homeTwo guys from Florida, no prior experience, a multiple six figure business in less than a yearA seven figure business in lake and pond care, SERIOUSLY So if you're really looking to see what Mikes system can do,  best to learn if from the people doing it.  I've got a  replay link Mike sent me, and you're not going to believe  how powerful the system is. http://videolane.com/social-media-marketing-machines-webcast/ Make it happen, Adrian Lee P.S. Seriously these people blew my mind, and I got choked  up at a couple of points.  This is real, and may offend  you at some points.  It's uncut and sincere, see it here:  http:/…

2-day Basic Videography Course Batch 1007 Completed

Image
Completed Training a new batch of 7 participants. This is another creative bunch with bright ideas. Look at the video they directed and produced. All I did was provide the skeleton script and act. The guys figured out the rest, from lighting to props. In these 2 full days, I imparted my videography skills. Day 1 was using the camcorder with light and sound. Day 2 was editing with Sony Vegas Pro on PC notebooks. Beyond technical aspects, the course includes storytelling. The art of conveying a message with moving visuals. By the way, it's not about home videos nor movies. This hands-on workshop is for serious corporate learners. People who want to make videos with a call to action. Here's more about the 2-day Basic Videography Course. Held in VideoLane's Bukit Merah Studio, Singapore.

Watch This Video Created by My Students

Image
May not be professional but I know they learnt something. It's a pleasure to watch the works of my students.
This time round the course participants were young schoolers. It's a challenge keeping their attention.
I might rename the course Holiday Videography Workshop for Beginners instead of Basic Videography Course.

Solved! Missing USB2 Enhanced Host Controller...

Image
Let's celebrate! My PC is up to speed again.
There was nothing to do with Windows Vista.
We have been bashing and blaming it for nothing.
The cause for the slow down was the missing USB2.
Or rather missing USB2 enhanced host controller.

Discovered this when I plugged in an external drive.
The PC reported it cannot operate at optimum speed.
It said the USB 2.0 hi speed port was not present.
This caused the drive to work in slow speed USB1.

It's a pain to edit video at this old speed.
Especially when editing high definition videos.
Response was so sluggish like a x386 computer.

Did a few things before pin-pointing the actual cause.
Cleaned desktop, defragmented, scanned for virus and spyware.
Cleaned registry, system restore and asked for help.
Finally I found this forum thread that ended it all...
http://www.softwaretipsandtricks.com/forum/windows-xp/14354-missing-usb-controller-device-manager.html

Here's how to bring back the missing USB2:
1. Turn on PC. Press DEL. Get into the BIOS screen.

First Step to Editing a Highlight Video is...

Image
... organizing your video clips. Organize your video clips by scene.
Open up a new Sony Vegas for each scene. Each scene for example can
be grouped as Tanjong Beach, Opening, Speech, and Meals.
At least that's what I did today. Here's a photo of my trusting old
laptop, capturing video from one cam while the other is ready to shoot
anytime. The white cup contains peppermint tea which I hope will
soothe my sore throat. Enjoying my work in Sentosa.-- Adrian Lee

Spoke to an audience of business people at the Singapore Management University today.

The presentation topic was on "5 Easy Ways to Promote Your Business with Youtube!".

Sharing my Youtube Marketing Tips with just a mindmap, the talk completed on time.

Jittery at first, but soon calmed down after engaging the listeners with interactive questions.

Golden Sunset on a Cloudy Day in Sentosa

Image
I caught this footage while waiting for a corporate dinner to start.

This was at the south western beach of Sentosa Island, Singapore.

The video camera was shooting like only 15 minutes non-stop.

I wanted to shoot more but I have work to do, especially when the sun was closer to the horizon.

The horizon is rather unique. Unlike most tropical island sunset images, this one has container cranes and smoke chimneys sticking out.

The video clip is for sale as a royalty-free stock footage at Pond5. Click on the video for more information. Or click here for details about the Golden Sunset on a Cloudy Day.



Enjoy!

Eat What You Shoot. Shoot What You Eat.

What I love best about my job is the food.

Especially the food from a 5 or 6-star hotel.

Get paid to eat and drink. That's lifestyle!

This video is a snippet of a recent 1-week video shooting stint.

Tour with me along Singapore River on an electric-powered bumboat.

YES! the bumboats are now powered by battery. No smoke, no smell.

The boats cannot go as fast as before, the bumboat operator told me.

Anyway, it's a river cruise. Save the Earth!

My foreign friends got to sip Singapore Sling in Raffles Hotel.

Throw peanut shells all over the Long Bar without getting fined.

You haven't visited Singapore if you haven't seen the Merlion and the ERP.

Sentosa is a haven for peacocks, though I saw more of peahens and peachicks.

OK, not just get paid to eat, but also travel and tour.

I love my job. Hire me if you have places to go and events to remember.

Enjoy!

4 Steps to Video Editing On-the-Fly

Image
This is a picture of my old but trusty video editing Acer laptop.

Though it has Sony Vegas Pro 8, I am using Vegas 4 for speedier delivery.

I am in a little dark corner of a room with a cup of hot tea, editing the video of a training workshop which is going on right now.

Video editing on the fly is required when client wants to watch the video at the end of the day.

Here are 4 steps to produce a video quickly:
Plan the video sequence: Study the event program. Rearrange the sequence to form an interesting storyline. Start and end with a bang. Leave the light moments in between. Draw a flow chart on paper.Shoot for edit: With the video sequence flow chart on hand, shoot the video exactly how you want the shot to appear. Take extra footages for more choice. Cover at least 3 main shots: wide, mid and close-up.Edit ruthlessly: Editing takes up the most time. Select your best shots quickly and cut away the rest. Pre-layout the video sequence using text clips. Slot in the visuals when you …
