Painting Lion Ear

I got a new camera (Panasonic Lumix DMC-S1) recently and decided to film a short duration of a lion ear getting painted. Unfortunately, my camera only records in 2gb segments and it doesn’t let you know when it reaches the limit. That explains why there’s a small chunk of the video missing, if you pay attention really closely. This is also my first video I’ve made (since 8th grade, the Windows Movie Maker days) using Sony Vegas. It took me about 6 hours to figure out everything…all for a 45 second video.

There is 24 minutes of footage condensed into about 30 seconds. It may seem like a long time for me to take almost half an hour to paint just the red portions, but my hands were shaking and I was worried about my hand touching freshly painted portions. That actually happened once but the smear wasn’t too noticeable. I fixed it right away and it’s not there anymore.

Anyways, enough words. Time for the video! Enjoy!
