House to House

The editing house of Florentine Films is located in a small town without a lot of housing options, so I live instead 18 miles southeastish in a more respectably-sized place called Keene, where I let a room in a house owned by a middle-aged couple. Instead of a house tour, I put together a video of my autumnal commute from home to work. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h77EzAFx8KI]

As you watch, you may find yourself asking these questions:

  • For reasons of video quality and safety, shouldn't Jeff have mounted the camera instead of holding it? (Maybe!)
  • Why does Jeff's camcorder overexpose everything? (It's cheap!)
  • Are Ken Burns' films, which have audiences in the tens of millions, really edited in an unmarked house on the corner of a residential street in a sleepy village? (Yes!)
  • If Jeff is working in an editing house, how come he fails so miserably when cutting a home video? (Irony!)
