🎥 Video Magnificent-ifying Help? Make Jake Wear A Beard & Read A Script!

If I need to chip in some video editing software money, happy to do so!


I can only get these pulls with watermarks at this point, ran off all my trials and my usual software has serious limitations… unfortunately never got to play with Filmora it was incompatible with my system for some reason (probably cuz it’s massively outmoded :joy:). Hadn’t even tried to use handbrake for anything other than compressing files, I’ll have to check into that :thinking: Either way still intending to help, just got crazy busy here for the past week or so…


Same. Most of today will be a ride over the mountains (easier said than done with 8 horespower and two people plus gear). And tomorrow some flights and things that’ll eat up some of the next week.

Still happy to contribute whatever is needed.


@jakey Well your busy is adventure filled excitement… mine is just the busy kind lol… at least post many pics so I can do the vicarious thing


Okay, so @Merlin93 and @Reannon, looks like it is us 3 then, plus @jakey, but he will have his own special work for this project.

Might I suggest we divvy up pulling and trimming clips like so:

How does this look, folks?
I have grouped together clips from the same videos (as in @Sharada’s post, they were listed in sequence of the final vision, rather than by original video).
Please name the files starting with the number that I have associated with the clip - this will allow us to file them in sequence still. (for single digits, please remember to start with 0 - e.g. ‘04’, not ‘4’. I reckon you would have probably worked that out anyway, @Merlin93 ).Besides starting with the number, feel free to name files however makes sense to you. I only need to know the number.
@Sharada also included a number of editing instructions - like slowing down, speeding up, sound effects - I have not included them here, as they are not relevant to this step in the process.
Does this sound okay, team? Let me know if you have a different idea, otherwise… Allons-y!

I’ll send you a PM with the drop box link where you can put trimmed files. :wink:

EDIT: Finished mine. Took about 30 minutes all up. If anyone finds the process too long, feel free to delegate some of yours to me. :slight_smile:


Finished mine as well. Took maybe 15 minutes, so I can do more if needs be.


I just found this. Is there a finished product? Is there more to be done or is it abandoned?

I have Corel VideoStudio to create clips or compile clips or combine voiceover with video track. My editing has been mainly practical rather than artful, but I can take direction or provide clips for another post-production editor.

Please let me know if this project needs more life.

I think it’s been … hibernating. :grimacing:

It’s not finished. I haven’t followed up and I was probably meant to, and my video to-do list is stuck on the latest animation I have to still get out there.

Of course would love your contribution!

Merlin finished. (10 clips)
Gemily finished. (9 clips)
Reannon did not report back on this thread. (10 clips)
I assume the finished videos were uploaded to Gemily’s Dropbox to be delivered to Jake.

@Reannon did you finish some or all of the clips Gemily listed above for you (20-29)? I can pick up where you left off or start at the top, downloading videos and saving the clips.

I can upload them to Gemily’s Dropbox folder or send directly to Jake if that’s what you prefer.

I had thought someone had picked up my set since I had been mid process on the bot at the time…

Did you talk about it with someone specific? If not, I’ll take it from the top.

I just looked back through the PM Merlin picked up my bit confirmed Feb 4

Ah, well, how can I help then? The video clips are ready. Jake, if it would help, I can put them together in a video file with titles as place holders. That might help you to get inspired for the next step or let us know what else would help you.

Is there a script for transitions/intros to segments? Is David doing a voiceover with a script? If that is already done, I can put that in too.

Not sure. @Sharada this one was your brain child if memory serves,

Yes. @Reannon I’m unable to add @shaerah to the group chat.

Only @jakey 's shoot remains then, I guess.

She should be able to see all this, no?

That would be helpful.

Do you have access to all the clips to stitch them together?

    5:49 – 6:10 (I would ask optometrists what caused this and a common answer was it’s genetic and I’m like how is it … how is it that we didn’t need glasses 50 years ago or 100 years ago … I mean nobody was wearing glasses so were people stumbling around, running into rocks at the time? How can a genetic thing just have happened so very recently?)
    40:56 – 41:07 (My issue is just now it’s 5-year olds, right! … the 5-year-old is not making a choice and nobody’s telling the parents that this is not a babysitter. The smartphone is not a babysitter!)

  5. Jake’s message for potential podcast collaborators:
    Diabetes can be reversed! Sugar is the new villain! Keto and Carnivore are the buzz words on the internet! But myopia? What does that even mean? Do you know of anyone who has gotten rid of their glasses? And no, I’m not talking about dangerous elective surgery which cuts a permanent lens in your cornea and potentially damages it forever. I’m talking of a natural, science-backed system, based on hundreds of peer-reviewed clinical studies which you may not even be aware exists. Want to know more? Contact us at (add links here) (*or something to that effect)

  6. Closing: Endmyopia meow meow meow! With just the usual endmyopia.org flashing on the screen.


No I do not. If @gemilymez could share the folder with me I could download them. Else Jake has a folder of them? I could put together as much as possible so Jake has a clearer vision (if he needs it) and a feel for how much is yet to be done.
