2013: The Year in Videogames

My big project from this past week before the Holiday break. It's probably the most ambitious video editing thing I've ever tried. A year ago, I wouldn't have attempted something like this, as the clip-juggling is pretty overwhelming. It's still by no means as tight as it could be, and it probably looks very sloppy to everyone I know that's an experienced video editor, but I feel like I've come a long way, particularly in the past few months. This whole project ended up taking about two solid days of work one of which ran late into the night. Sourcing the clips was very time consuming, but I have a workflow that works for me now, and as long as I'm using two screens so I can multitask, it goes pretty smoothly. By the end of the project, the hardest thing was letting go and being ready to post the thing. I could've probably noodled with it indefinitely.
