Whether you tell yourself you can or whether you tell yourself you cannot... you are always RIGHT! Redesign Update - 20091212

About this Video
Druplicon is rockin' to the beat! And then comes Lisa Rex who was so kind as to give us an update on the redesign. I am thankful because I had no clue what was going on with it, I had heard it was going to happen and then nothing happened and I know many other people are wondering the same thing. Her update is pretty exciting and in conjunction with it
Dries Buytaert said in his keynote at Do It With Drupal 2009 in New Orleans that he hopes for the redesign to be done in early 2010.

Technical Details
In this video I grabbed a custom track from Sonic Fire Pro called "Juggernaut" and made my first real attempt at syncing keyframes with the wave form of the music in Final Cut Pro. I think it turned out pretty good considering it was my first attempt. In addition to the rapid keyframing I used the "Motion Blur" effect in the "motion" tab of the layer.

Irrelevant Details
This is one of my first real YouTube videos of many more to come. Over the next year or so I will be producing some music videos for the amazing musical artist Sonya Leigh and I also have a ton of footage of the Ron Paul Blimp that I will be releasing (creative commons). I just have to get it all transferred onto disk and that entails me getting another DV camera that has a working firewire port. I prefer to get the same model it was shot on, a Sony TRV-27, so I have the best chance of zero dropouts (so, if anyone has a TRV-27 then hit me up!). I have some awesome blimp footage and although I haven't watched any of it since it happened it is sure to be some good content for the movement. The whole election fraud of Ron Paul kind of pissed me off a bit. I think I am finally recovered from that hugely stressful event and I now feel that it is time to get active again. Although, I am now moving more in the direction of The Venus Project as I think that is the best plan for a sustainable, peaceful and pleasurable planet for us all to enjoy for eons to come!


Thanks for sharing this, Elijah. Little trivia ... this was filmed around 11pm at night after the conference had ended (explains the tired-looking eyes)!
