He did some filming in different parts of Queen B’s Quilt Shop – one with me sorting through bolts of fabric.
I was so pleased that he was willing to take on the project. He studies video at Campolindo high school and has directed and edited several videos (available on YouTube under SuperThresh).
When he reviewed my script at home he could barely keep his yawns suppressed. He made several suggestions about parts of the script to give them a bit more life. After several hours I realized that it really was boring. I had to admit it. One segment of the script was based on my Quick Stick & Rotary Cut web page. That part had a lot more action in it. Victor was gentle with his criticism. So, we are going to meet again and film the “exciting” part.
I totally trust him to do a great job with the filming and editing because I’ve seen his work and been impressed. The latest video project is called A Life Deferred. It is about the challenges faced by upward-bound students who trade off time having fun to concentrate on their studies. You can click on the picture below to watch it.
Victor was a darling little boy and now, at 16, he is a fine young man. I am very proud of him.
He won an award this year from the Orinda Arts Council’s Annual Lamorinda Acalanes Union Film Festival.
