Beardless and Randomness

Well the beard has been cut once more, but like Sampson, the true vigor lies within my long, flowing black locks... All hail the mighty 'do.

Any who, much randomness has occurred since last we spoke. With destiny putting a damper on my career goals and you know, my aspirations and what not, I've decided to broaden the window of opportunity. It's become a very large window to say the least. Some of you may remember the short lived reality tv show, "The Mole" from the earlier part of the decade. Well it just so happens that they recently had an open cast call in San Diego, so I figured, why the hell not...

40 min of footage + 1 night of editing=

I wanted several more shots to be included but overall I'm pretty pleased with the way it has turned out, all considering. Thank God for iMovie; I used Final Cut to upload the clips but since I don't have the software I had to sneak into Art Institute of San Diego to use it. Unfortunately their hours suck and I had to leave early but not before I converted all of the clips into quicktime movie files. Then I just put it all together in iMovie which is practically retards' Final Cut Pro. Duuhhh, thanks Apple, you're the bestest!

Haha, you're awesome Tal. And here I thought every day after class you just went home and fell into a coma until the next class began. Who knew you could actually move at an accelerated rate of speed, jump, or lift your foot above your waist. Hope you make it onto the show.

Wow, Mr. Dragon himself!!! You honor me with your presence "oh great One"!

I'd thank you for the complement but I'm still trying to find it. Although you were right about that whole "falling into coma" thing after class. I believe comas give me sexual powers.

Heya Tal! Cool video man. Editing video and music is cool stuff. I love it. I thinks it the attraction of working on a timeline. But anyways, thanks for checking out my AM work. Its going well, but quite intensely busy. But I am enjoying it a ton. I'm be graduating in the end of September. Then we'll see what world has in store for me. =)

"How much you wanna bet I can throw a football over them mountains" The only thing missing from the vid. That and the Final Countdown!

Ha I love the chess piece falling dramatically... and "This isn't basketball, this is Monopoly!" Ha.

Dude if they pass on you, they will only be acting as typical execs!

My friend, good to luck to you.

Tal Moscovici said...

Hey Sheldon man! Yeah I agree, editing is fun work... especially when you're also writer, director, and producer! Keep on fightin' with AM; I have no doubt that you'll make it work for you.

Haha 'over them mountains'... classic. The Final Countdown was a funny idea but it would have been pretty random at the end; The faces of the producers would have been classic though. Thanks for the support, Sal. Crossing my fingers in hope that the execs are at least part jew, 'cause as we all know they're a dying breed in today's modern entertainment biz.

Haha, "this isn't basketball, this is monopoly!"

I watch this vid when I'm feeling down to cheer me up.
