Guardian Angel



Re-edited! With some trims to speed up the awkwardly staged middle section and some extra razzle-dazzle at the end.

For some reason, the sound is really low on a lot of your videos. I tried to watch a few of them, and couldn't understand what you were saying.

Steve, I recommend getting a pair of headphones (but he's right, Kenny). I enjoyed the "I'm not a philosopher" dodge.

Kenny said...

Steve, that reason is that our sound is recorded very badly.

I think it's great! Even better than the one man show version that Mike performed at dinner Monday. ;-) Is there anyway to edit the car at the beginning so that it's driving down the road and looks like it's on your side of the street? Like could you take that clip and reverse it? I'm not familiar with Final Cut, but I know you could do it in Avid. I guess then you'd have to worry about not seeing you guys on the ground behind the car though. Ugh. This stuff isn't as easy as it looks, is it. ;-)

I would love a video comprised entirely of Mike popping out of random hiding spots and surprising you.

i find these enjoyable.

Can you use Final Cut (or whatever) to turn up the volume? It's not so much that the sound is badly recorded or distorted. It's just really quiet. With my computer's volume turned all the way up, I still can't hear enough to understand it.

It sounds like you must have a computer with pretty quiet speakers. The headphones idea helps. But the problem is that the sound is recorded at a very low level. I can turn it up in editing only so much. I turned it up all the way on the party sketch and it didn't seem to change much; the background hum got louder too so the dialogue didn't seem that much more audible. We're going to work on talking louder and possibly look into a new microphone.

i have an ibook and i can't hear it really with my volume turned all the way up. i don't think that's crazy. the powerbook's speakers are much louder.

i second the idea of just mike popping out and surprising people. upside- you could do all the sound in ADR for double the hilarity.

you know, you could try doing audio seperate, then feed it through a sound-boost program and then put it back on in imovie... but then you run the risk of having the audio be off, and having more work.
