Sad report. I am losing ground in the battle to get movies in my journal. Where I WAS: I had a short video on my entering the lobby of the Old Folks Home where I live. It was in the digital camera.
I had transferred a movie from computer to journal. It was silent and all the wrong color, but it MOVED.
What I couldn't do was load the movie from the camera to the computer. I still can't.
What happened next: (1) while trying to transfer the movie for the tenth time or so, I ERASED IT. Now I had nothing to put in journal even if I counquered the beast at the impasse.
So I (2) set up the camera near my keyboard. I went and practiced playing and singing "Bill Grogan's Goat" several times. When I had that ready, I started the camera, tried rolling to the keyboard in my power chair, got tangled, knocked off one shoe, continued anyway, started keyboard, played and started to sing the old folk song. But being on camera so bollixed up my mind that I forgot the words, (to that old saw I have done a million times before), got off rhythm, and tried to shut off everything. In the excitement I wet my pants.... I used to have a puppy that did that...lose control when she got excited.
I hope no one invites me to sing in Carnigie Hall.
I got control, shut off and erased that horrible experiment. That's where I stand. I don't even have a movie to put in my journal even if I learn how to transfer it from camera to computer.
I have learned two things (1) rehearse until you can do it in your sleep, and (2) have a camera man to start and stop the camera.
Orson Welles used to write, produce, direct, and ACT in his own movies. I am no Orson Welles.
So the saga continues.... you will stay turned in, won't you?
