I heard that song, “Celebration” by Kool & The Gang, in the past two days, and it always sticks in my head. (See last video at bottom of this post.) But yeah, it’s celebration time for me. Why? The first two videos I’ve embedded below. The lighting on the host, Samantha, is really bad, thanks to my inability to fix that in video editing software – it was fine on my video camera monitor; I swear – and there are some really rough spots. However, these are my first two directed visual media works ever. (They were actually part of one movie review web show, but YouTube’s limits and the fact that I’ve got an Internet access provider that throttles my access meant I had to split them into two, even though I didn’t shoot two separate introductions.)

I know that I have a long way to go before I’m a true filmmaker, but you know the old saying: a journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step. And I’ve made several thousand-mile journeys in my life. This is the start of a new journey. Thanks go to Samantha, Bill, Amitav and Ryan.
