The Keyboard and The Mouse

video poetry editorAn interactive movie editor in Flash. This is an exercise to try out Flash MX's new video capabilities. In this editor, you can cut up and mix Sophie Hannah's poem The Keyboard and the Mouse to create a new version all your own. Thanks to Charlotte for reading :)

Shot on MiniDV, edited in Premiere, adjusted in After Effects, built in Flash MX. Conclusion: Flash MX is superb for compressing videos down to smaller file sizes using the Sorenson codec, but not as much flexibility and control as Director...

~Go!~

i think i still have some of last year's tan. still got a pale stripe where my pants go.
i've stopped smoking. yesterday. still at the 'want to kill someone' stage. will feel better tomorrow, if i make it that far... i nearly finished making my video editor....

- from an email during development... needless to say I didn't quit.
