Planets, Mountains, in my Backyard!

Seriously, no joke, this is amazing!

Pretty sweet, right?  The picture is a screenshot from a new video I'm working on in my spare time.  The idea actually came from the Freddie Wong video below.  (DISCLAIMER: the video, while not horribly offensive, does contain a few profanities)

Anyways, I thought that if Freddie could do it, so could I!  It's coming along well...I don't think I'll ever get guns or BMWs to fall from the sky, but the color correction, mountains, and planets were a cinch.  Now all I need is someone to sound really cool and 'gangsta' while talking about video effects...probably my little brother.

Speaking of video effects, I'm going to update my BCC7 review soon!  (applause!)  The new review will include screenshots, like the one above, demonstrating how I'm using the filters in my film.  Be sure to check back, it'll be great.  Also, I'll upload the 'planet' video as soon as it's finished.

Lastly, today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten Season.  I'm trying to give up computer I may only post new content on the weekends.

Have a blessed Lent!
