Capturing film and Final Cut Express

I have officially entered the second phase of this iBeat project: Capturing/Ingesting film.

I hate this process. I officially do. I have five hours of footage spread out over five tapes. It has taken me roughly eight hours to capture two hours of film. Is this normal? Is there something wrong with me? I need to start editing this Anthony Pisano story and my professor Adrian Mihai can’t help me until I have something more concrete: i.e. until I have ingested/ captured all of my footage.

Canon ZR 800 camera

I am using this camera as my deck to ingest my film.

Clip captured in Final Pro.

This is one of the shots from my B-Roll. I just captured it in Final cut pro. It is from a photograph Anthony Pisano has in his home.

It is officially 8:42 pm here at 20 Cooper Square at the NYU Journalism Institute. I have been here since 4pm. I will probably be here until midnight; now start the long hours.

Wish me luck!
