Emotionally Draining






Creating a final video for a friend who has died to show to friends and family after her funeral is one of the toughest things I have had to do. I describe as like peeling onions!





Desperate to get it finished I was up last night until nearly 4:30 but, I couldn’t have slept with it unfinished, it was too important.





This morning it took me an hour to pluck up the courage to watch the finished production. Usually, video creating is akin to cooking a meal, by the time it is ready I am sick of it and don’t want to see it anymore. With this, wow! An emotional explosion.

Of course, I may be the only one it affects but, if all that work got just one predictable reaction, I am happy with it.

Who would think so much could be packed into just 15 minutes, not very long at all for a lifetime.





Obviously, no one will ever know how complex it was to make, that doesn’t matter really, the end result it was matters. It probably holds the record for the fastest production ever by me.





There were three things wrong with the final cut, I could only correct two of those and the third, well, it’s there, I know it’s there but it will be soon forgotten.
