I posted this video today and so I figured I'd just attach a really short blog post to go with it, since I'm not up to much today except dealing with personal issues. This video started as a test video. I have about five test videos in FCP just waiting to become something. Somewhere along the line, this video went from some footage and effects to something more, so I decided to write a little bit about what Disneyland has always meant to me and turn it into a video. Yes, it's short, but it didn't really need more.
Disneyland was a getaway when I was younger. We would go as a family once or twice a year for about five days and never got bored. Sure, we fought, but at the end of the day, we were happy to be there together. As I grew up, my family and I stopped going places together and I went alone. It never feels the same, though. I love visiting with my friends, but it really is an entirely different experience. I no longer feel that I want to be there for five days. I can go one day and year and it will keep me happy all year round. It was my first second home, if that makes sense. The first place, other than my house, that comforted me and reminded me how lucky I am to be alive. I owe Disney and Disneyland a lot, I do. And while I feel I have grown out of my intense Disney phase, I will never think less of this beautiful place. I hope my short video represents that.
Let me know if you guys have a place of this sort. It's really interesting to see what places mean a lot to others. See you tomorrow. x
