I decided to try making a little movie on our recent, longer, trip to the Philippines after re-experimenting with a video making app while in Seoul earlier this year. Our trip was a last-minute one, conjured up at the end of a hectic work week. Sly warily turned to me one morning and said, “After this week is over, I just want to go somewhere and lie on the beach.” Consider it done. We purchased and planned our trip to Cebu and Bohol in less than five days time. It turned out to be the perfect getaway and definitely one of our favorite places we have visited in Asia so far.
One day I’ll be all caught up editing and blogging about our travels (I’m at least five years behind) but until then, I think these mini videos compiled using one second clips will serve as stand-ins. Even though I can easily compile the videos on the fly on my phone, it still requires some level of vigilance. Sometimes I remember to compile clips at the end of the day, but more often I end up waiting until I’m home from our trip, when my phone is in desperate need of a photo/video dump, before I get around to actually sorting through all of my videos. It’s an endless cycle keeping up with photos and videos, but maybe if I keep doing it, I’ll get better and more efficient.
And maybe one day, I’ll finally tackle all those old backlogged travel photos.
