actually i should just not edit anything

“I’ve never had anything come super easy to me, no matter what people might think, I continue to be the best I can be and I just wanna enjoy it, you know. We only have one life, it is very precious. There’s a lot that we can do. There’s a lot that we should do but if you’re good and you’re kind to people and you work hard and you’re actually doing something with your life. I think that’s so fulfilling and you should just be happy and enjoy that.”

No, I don’t like it.  I love it. 

“I bet he’d rather be flying than chained up. Poor bird.”

This is something someone said when she saw me with Rowan today (she said chain, but he was just wearing a harness). Combined with a post that came across my dash earlier, I just want to say this:

Don’t you dare tell me my birds are not happy because they’re not flying free in their native habitat.

No captive parrot’s life is perfect. But neither is one in the wild. Spin it however you want, their natural habitat is disappearing. Besides that, most of the birds presently in captivity were bred here and wouldn’t survive even if it was an option to release them - and they certainly can’t miss it.

They’re here and we have to make the best of it. No, the best care anyone can provide isn’t perfect, but it’s all we have and it’s what we desperately need more of. The solution to bad parrot care isn’t “nobody should keep birds” it’s “we need to spread more information so those who have or want birds know what they’re in for and how to do the best they can.”

I believe in education and presenting the cold, hard truths of this lifestyle. It’s not easy. They’re not easy. They’re demanding, destructive, loud, aggressive, messy, emotionally complicated, and astonishingly smart animals. They will take over your life and you absolutely should not adopt or buy one without a solid understanding of this. They are not for everyone… but neither is anything else.

If we want rescues and sanctuaries to be less overrun, we need to not chase away every potential home because they’re not perfect. Maybe “good enough” is all we can hope for right now. Maybe that’s okay.

Let’s just all keep learning and improving, and maybe someday our “good enough” can actually be what we want it to be.

Hey I just wanted to know, about how far into the animate a grumps timeline are we? Like are we still waiting on some animations, does it just need to be stitched together or something, etc? I only ask because it's been a month since anything was posted about it, and I just wanted a bit of an update, if that isn't too much to ask...

Hey there ! We actually finished the final editing yesterday, it took us a extra week to fix and change some things we weren’t happy with or that we forgot in the previous versions but we should be sending the finished video to the grumps this weekend, once that done we will keep everyone in the known as to when the video will be put out on the main channel, thanks for being patient !

You should just keep it simple and never be torn up by anything that’s out of your hands. Because what you realize being in this business, so much of it is. And I’m actually glad I was sort of ignorant to that. Starting I had a different fire, different passion about it. I was going in to get every job. And whereas now I know the odds are insane. So it’s really about because you love doing this. Whatever it is you wanna do. Stay passionate about it, stay fearless. And don’t care what people think.

My Thought Of BTS Winning Mama This Year.

Okay this is my opinion, if you don’t like it too bad.

So my thoughts is that every year BTS won at a award show, I’m not saying is bad or anything but we should be actually proud of them, of them winning and seeing their huge smile. But this year, it don’t always have to be BTS winning award shows every year, cause it’s not actually fair for some other groups. I just want to see some other groups to win this year and I’m not saying is wrong but give some other groups a chance.

Call me a hateful bitch, but IDC🙃. Just want to share some thought…

What’s your opinion for this?

Edit: The people that saying I’m being selfish or saying it’s not the army fault to vote for BTS. You twisting my word ._. I’m not saying Bts shouldn’t win for MAMA award I will be happy if they won because they made it. This is my opinion ._. 

What I Learned in My High School Film Class
  • Always edit on the software we’re using in class.
  • Do not take on an unrealistic and/or confusing storyline if you don’t have the time or materials to make it realistic and less confusing.
  • Use people you know well and can depend on as actors.
  • A good film needs more time than two hours 2/3 times a week.
  • Location and costuming are everything.
  • There is no such thing as too much fake blood.
  • Music adds a lot to a film, it is important to pick music that is appropriate and keeps viewers interest.
  • It is much better to capture good audio on the day than to use a voiceover.
  • Technical mistakes can distract from what should be funny/sad etc.
  • Commit to what a film is supposed to be and make it that i.e. don’t make a half commercial half short film, make a commercial or a short film.
  • Filming can be very, very fun.
  • Pick actors with good chemistry and who are very comfortable with each other, especially if you plan to have any romance. (You think this would be something that I would have figured out without making the mistake first but we actually had to completely start over after filming two different scenes with a male lead we didn’t use in the final because he and the female lead just didn’t click.)
  • Have everything planned out exactly how you want it before you leave to start filming.
  • Edit as you film.
  • Cool guitar intro’s are cool but don’t really work if the rest of the songs in piano or if they are filmed vertically and the rest has already been filmed horizontally.
  • No dialogue is the best dialogue. (Sometimes)
  • Flash backs are your friend.
  • So is black and white.
  • This goes back to the use actors you trust thing but USE ACTORS WHO KNOW WHAT THEY’RE DOING (We had a bit of a conundrum after using the freshman drama students and getting no usable footage, we had to completely start over.)
  • Make sure you have fake blood before you start filming a fight scene. (Ketchup is kind of clumpy and smells weird for a few days)
  • Make sure your camera is charged before you start filming.
  • The sunset is not your friend.
  • Filming at night is doable, just be sure you can light it well. A floodlight and a white umbrella should do the trick.
  • In fight scenes or anything that’s supposed to be funny timing is very important. I paid close attention to this while editing to make sure it worked out.
  • Don’t film near busy streets.
  • Download footage onto the computer not a flash drive if you plan to burn it onto a disc.
  • Holding a camera for an hour and a half really hurts, even if you can do like thirty pushups.
  • Don’t plan on using green screen before you actually know how to use green screen because it may not even work with the system you’re editing on who knows. (I do, it didn’t)
  • Make sure all you’re footage is on one computer (this was an issue, too, because the computer that had adobe was the computer that didn’t have final cut)
  • Poetry is a good tool for film making.
  • Random people enjoy being asked to be in films so it’s definitely okay to ask them if that’s what you need to do.
  • Mostly know you’re technically proficient, or find somebody who is, before trying to use complex special effects.
  • It’s okay to ask for help if you have no idea what you’re doing.
  • Be very careful in choosing passages to convert to film if you are adapting from a book, make sure they contain dialogue that shows the characters intention rather than just internal monologue, which, though can be useful, shouldn’t be you’re primary source of character building.
  • Watch all your footage at least once before you pack up, you never know when you actually can hear that helicopter in the background.
  • Dialogue and music are great tools for transitions.
  • Try not to get in trouble for trespassing just because something looked exactly how you imagined it would and you really can’t help yourself.
  • If you have access to two cameras use both, so you can have both actors responding to each other as they act.
  • Make a check list of props to have before you leave to film.
  • Fill the wine bottle up with water or some other liquid, everybody knows it’s fake if you don’t.
  • If you can’t have them actually smoke, don’t have them smoke at all.
  • Opening and closing credits are super important; they set up an audiences’ expectations for the entire film and are the last things they see before they leave.
  •  If you put your mind to it and your heart into and bribe your friends with enough free food, you can make anything.    

So I saw JL last night, and now I’ve calmed down a bit, I want to say that it was great. I really liked it, although I still have some nit-picky issues with it - things from Whedon’s influence. I wish we could have seen Zack’s version, and I hope we get a director’s cut that is 3 hours long because we deserve and god knows Zack deserves to release it. 

Also, the fucking morons angry at the Amazon’s costumes have nothing to be angry about. Really. If anything, you should be fucking thrilled that Zack respects women they way he does. Go fuck up someone else’s career who actually treats women like objects. 

Edit: I think Justice League will be favored more by general audiences this time, in comparison to Zack’s earlier films and critics so far have been generally positive, both great things. Just remember, it’s your opinion that matters, no one elses. 

If you have seen the movie and want to discuss it, hit me up. I don’t want to reblog and post spoilers.

I just hit 2k (lil pause for some cheering *yayaya*) okay,, I honestly didn’t know what to do until I remembered that I actually like to edit so why not some bad url edits (yea yea I know how original).

right, here are some rules (?? or smth like that)

- mbf me pls (if u don’t mind it would be nice :) 

- reblog this post 

- I’m only doing dnp related url’s (and anything I get inspiration from) ooh and I’m aiming for some minimalist kinda edit thing 

- I’ll be tagging these #jo’s url edits and I’ll @’ as well

yea, it should be fun. btw don’t expect much from me even tho I’m going to try to do them as quickly as possible. yaya so if this flops just forget I exist or smth

prince-ash-teh-boi-in-skirts  asked:

Can I ask what software you use to do your videos? And like, for someone with like no money how can I start doing YouTube? Got any tips?

Listen, and judge me all you want anyone who reads this, but half of my YT videos have been edited on Windows Movie Maker. You know, that dinky program that usually comes with your PC, or you can download for free. Yeah, that one. Point and laugh.

Sometimes I download free trials for things, so the other half of my videos have been edited with Movie Studio 14 and Sony Vegas Pro. I haven’t invested in an actual editing program yet, but I really should. I’m just calling myself out now.

Anyway, the point is: You Don’t Need Anything Fancy. The drawing program I use: Free. Video editing program: Free. Audio editing program: Free (coughAudacitycough). Microphone: Low cost ($50 AND it gave me a good 5 years of use. I just recently ordered a nicer one). 

So yeah, decide what kind of videos you want to be making, decide what supplies you absolutely need, and don’t blow hundreds of dollars into fancy shit. At least, not in the beginning. Good luck.

So misha said cas free will is not effect i just...have no words do they want to destroy team free will 😣

*shrugs* we haven’t seen it yet. I’m waiting to see what happens and not speculating too hard, but I think there’s a big difference between Cas acting like he’s possessed or mind controlled and doing things ~of his free will~ but on behalf of the nephilim after a abrupt turn of priorities. Ever since Dean made such a big fuss about Cas being mind controlled in 12x20 I’ve been certain when they encounter him again it’s going to play very contrary to that just to prove Dean wrong and upset him (because why have him make such a fuss in the first place), and make him think this is exactly what you are saying. But I also think the nephilim has affected Cas and Dean is right that his behaviour had an abrupt effect, because there were several staged moments in the episode to show that Cas had changed abruptly. I think there’s an enormous grey area between the two extremes of free will and outright puppeting someone, all of which involve a degree of lack of agency and choices being taken away, but don’t necessarily impact someone’s sense of having free will.

Take Mary for example - not now but in the past. She had her life plan all worked out for her by Heaven and Hell before she was ever born - by eons before she was born. She was going to be the disposable mother on the end of a long long chain of disposable mothers, to birth the kids the angels and demons were actually interested in. And Heaven used cupids to hook her and John up - this season starts with Dean describing that moment as if she had some sort of choice in finding and falling in love with John, but he knows better than anyone that her choice was kicked out from under her legs at that point. But she thought she was choosing John, and wanting all the things she said she wanted in 4x03, and then seemed very firmly to make the choice of a deal for John’s life and her peace, because she loved him. Absolutely nothing Mary thought she did seemed to be because she was being forced to do it. She could have told Azazel screw you. She had every opportunity so she might think to listen to her father, stop seeing John, choose not to date someone outside the life, etc, if she wanted to, but mysteriously she never wanted to not do these things which is exactly what Heaven and Hell wanted of her. So from her POV she’s had free will and messed up catastrophically. From our POV she’s been horrifically manipulated and between 12x01 and like, 12x09 was the only time in her entire existence that no one was manipulating her for anything. 

Anyway, Cas might seem like he’s acting perfectly by his own choices but remember in 12x19, he seemed about to be given the choice - he even seemed halfway ready to offering himself without being asked. And then Kelly stole the car, and from that point on Cas was never asked if he would do this. Maybe Mary wanted to get out of the life before she met John, maybe she didn’t, but once she’d been hit with a cupid arrow, that was all she wanted.

I never really listen to what the actors say about these things. They know their part of it, or are telling us the spoiler-free version of it, the one that they think will tease and interest us about it. And this is a massive tease and he’d never tell us actual spoilers. I think we should watch the actual episodes before we get upset about what they seem to be saying about them, as a general rule.

(As usual this comes with the guarantee you can come back to my inbox and tell me to my face I’m wrong and I won’t blame you :P I just really don’t think con “spoilers” are worth anything, and it fits exactly with what I was thinking anyway so this feels like good news to me.)

Edit: @tinkdw and @amwritingmeta have both been working on a more elaborate explanation of why Cas doing everything by choice is a good thing and is definitely what’s going on, if you want a different attack on this.

#Choicesfilms update!

A MESSAGE FROM @arc-17
Re: #Choicesfilms

Oh my goodness, I want to thank all the amazing people who showed their support for this idea. Seriously, I did NOT expect this kind of reaction and how it has touched me so deeply, with the outpouring of enthusiasm and encouragement, especially considering I’ve only been in this fandom a few short weeks.
The unconditional kindness, generosity, support of this whole community is astounding! Despite all our sometimes drastic differences, none of that matters here.

Here I just wanted to add a little piece of something to this amazing comadrie and… I’m at a loss for words.
I want to give a special thanks to everyone who has volenteered to help in this project:
@hollyashton - @xo-endlessmayhem-xo - @raventear - @lacksubstance-productions - @roseplayschoices - @aleister-rourke - @whispersofaquarius - @aleisterrrourke - @justapapercut - @lararomay - @ladyashtonofcordonia - @lookatmychoices - @owleyes374 - @estela-montoya - @eleanorwiferley - @rr-roe-es - @piixelberry - @storiesbehindyoureyes - @zahranamazis - @julievasnormandy - @the-tonystarkening - @broke-choices - @witchofthewilcls - @diamondsaregold - @brandystanford - @choicesimaginesandmore - @angelschoice - @cheesepots - @turtle-brownie - @therachelverse - @arina-is-here

With special shout outs to @hollyashton who’s guidance and encouragement made me have the courage to start this.
And at  @xo-endlessmayhem-xo who helped me write this post and proof read it, and for her promise of future assistance as well. Thank you ladies! With my crazy life schedule right now I really appreciate the help.
And @cheesepots for being my muse and sounding board for ideas! Your energy is infectious!
And if I missed anyone’s name please dont take offense! This is all very new to me and I’m still learning how to use Tumblr in general!
So know I thank you too!

Now on to an update of what we are doing.

First, since this is a learning experience for everyone we should start off easy going, something we can point to and say “hey! I did that!” And to practice and and build from. And with one of our most  popular books: Endless Summer!
We will do the other books too, just after some thought, figured that one would be the easiest and most popular choice.
No hour long feature films. Yet. (Hey I can dream can’t I? LOL) But make a practice piece, like a trailer or such, with music and editing and voice overs, to get our feet wet.
Also should be ok to do this with Pixelberry, for we aren’t actually doing any story content, just a fan made tribute.
As @lacksubstance-productions so wisely pointed out we NEED their permission to do anything fancier. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them.

So, we’ll be organising things, setting up voice tests and art submissions and ideas and brainstorming etc with anyone and everyone so please keep an eye out for the #ChoicesFilms tag.
And feel free to ask me, @arc-17 or @hollyashton or
(this ok Doggo?) @xo-endlessmayhem-xo for information or updates.

Cheers everyone!

Hi Scotch! So, I know you're an animation/film student (I hope I got that right) and I was wondering if you have any helpful advice on about art/animation colleges? Are there specific courses I should take in high school for it?That might be really vague but just recently I realized "oh god, I don't want to go to vet school and study science and stuff I want to learn animation and make art and actually be happy with what I do. It's my senior year and I've never been so confused about my future.

anything that builds ur portfolio is good (like art classes, or digital media classes where u get practice with graphics, video editing software, animation programs, website building/design, etc)

My first official Phil imagine! It was plenty of fun to write. If you think you know where this concept came from, you’re probably correct

Being Phil’s girlfriend was great. Not just because he was a hot, loveable giant, but because he didn’t care about being childish. Being 30 to some people meant that there was no more room in your life for playing video games or watching cartoons, but Phil didn’t care about any of that. Not to say that he was a kid all the time, but being carefree was such a good look on him, it made his blue eyes sparkle even brighter. The fun we had was contagious, even sourpuss Dan joined us on our adventures, even if he complained about how “horribly gooey” our relationship was. Yeah, living with Phil was like loving my best friend, and I missed him whenever he wasn’t home, like right now.

anonymous asked:

"When was the last time I said I love you?" With Henry pls??

Although it is merely five in the evening, when Henry unlocked the front door to your flat he was met with complete and utter silence. With your missing of his last two phone calls, he knew this could mean only one thing: you were asleep. Sure enough, his suspicions were confirmed when he found you curled up on his side of the bed sound asleep.

Kal is pressed against your upper back, the Akita’s chin nuzzled and resting along your neck. It has become the dogs favorite position the past two months. Although resistant at first, Kal had found himself attached to you as of late. I guess that’s what happens when you have to share your owner with someone else. Or perhaps it was that you let him sleep on the bed when Henry is away.

Henry stops to stroke the Akita’s fur, paying a good amount of attention to the spot behind Kal’s ear, before stopping to press a kiss against your cheek.

He had planned on treating you to a home cooked meal, but something told him it might be one of those nights where you awoke long enough to raid the fridge before falling back asleep.

Henry stripped down to his boxers and a white t-shirt before stopping to use the bathroom. It was as he was washing his hands that he noticed it. He quickly dried his hands before picking up the pregnancy test placed on the sink.

Positive.

Henry was smart enough to know that, but that did not stop the question of “is this real?” from popping into his mind. Neither of you had mentioned plans of getting pregnant. Sure you’d hoped to be parents, but with Henry rarely being home the past few months the idea seemed to be better left for the far future. However, it is not like either of you had bothered practicing any protective measures either.

Reaching up to comb his fingers through his hair, Henry glanced back into the bedroom where you still slept. He found himself wondering how long the test had been left for him to find. He knew you would never share the news over the phone.

He cuts off the light, stopping to carefully lay the stick on the bedside table before climbing in bed alongside you. Kal trudged from the bed as Henry managed to slip his arm around your waist. His intentions had been to move your body closer to his without waking you, but as soon as his touch registered your body stirred.

“…Welcome home…”

You lifted your chin, in your sleep driven haze, in an attempt to place a kiss against his lips. When your lips missed their intended target, instead brushing along the curve of his chin, a soft smile spread across your boyfriend’s lips.

Henry let his fingers lift your chin, his lips giving you what you wanted. As soon as his lips left yours you nuzzled your face against his chest, listening to the soft thump of his heart.

“When was the last time I said I love you?” He sighed as his grip tightened around you.

Your brow furrowed as his fingers lightly passed along your temple before slipping into your disheveled hair.

“Mmm…this morning?” You guess. For a brief second you think your mind might actually be strong enough, in this moment, to ponder his question. “…why?”

Henry can already feel the shift in your breathing pattern, the slackening of your fingers around the fabric of his t-shirt letting him know you were already falling back to sleep.

“I just want you to know I love you more than anything,” he mumbled against your scalp.

Awww, Chris liked the photo of the new pup that his and Will's friend got. And the pup's name is Willie! If I believed that Chris spends his days devising signs and sending smoke signals to a tiny obscure tumblr frau contingent, I'd say that's a massive sign. But I live in reality and it's a guy linking his and his BF's friend's dog. That's meaningful enough without any conspiracy shit attached.

Ask 2:  And I should definitely add: Chris and Will’s friend with the new dog is HOT TO DEATH. And GAY. And Chris and Will actually go to parties, trips, celebrations, with him, his similarly HOT boyfriend, and the rest of their GAY friends, like any normal person would. What Chris doesn’t do is having anything to do with DC 

*********************************************************

Hi there!!!  Again with the tumblr frau.  I know you think it is an insult and you are being oh so creative by calling me/us fraus, but honestly, it just makes you look pathetic and scared of our little corner of the word. 

Clearly, I edited your ask as your comments were ignorant and rude.  No reason to be a jerk. 

If on the off change you are a fan, C HATES people who are bullies and rude. I also think C would take offense at the allegations made against the man who he has chosen to be his life partner.  There is no one in life he protects more and who is more precious to him.

As I tend to think you aren’t a fan, stop being an asshole and get a life.  

i mean sure its fun to think about and technically there are 14 classes to 16 types in MBTI (16 Classes if you count my two joke classes, Waste and Matter)

and then 12 zodiacs for 12 aspects

but it’d be about as informative and accurate as those facebook memes where you tag your friends, as well as the actual zodiac memes here on tumblr

but i love those anyway, so fuck it why not

INTJ = Seer, INTP = Mage, ENTJ = Prince, ENTP = Thief, INFJ = Muse, INFP = Maid, ENFJ = Matter, ENFP = Heir, ISTJ = Knight, ISFJ = Rogue, ESTJ = Sylph, ESFJ = Page, ISTP = Waste, ISFP = Witch, ESTP = Lord, ESFP = Bard

(if wondering what Matter and Waste are, see here: http://dahniwitchoflight.tumblr.com/post/118561157487

then the zodiacs = aspects I think I did actually do before in a semi serious attempt to match the meanings here: http://dahniwitchoflight.tumblr.com/post/141795224182)

but basically they were

Aries = Life, Taurus = Rage, Gemini = Breath, Cancer = Void, Leo = Light, Virgo = Mind, Libra = Doom, Scorpio = Heart, Saggitarius = Hope, Capricorn = Blood, Aquarius = Time, Pisces = Space

so if you are an INTP Saggitarius like me, then this way states that you would be a Mage of Hope lol

(obviously I prefer my actual god tier, Witch of Light much better lol)

(*edit* note, this is not me actually endorsing an actual way to find out your god tier, this is pure meme fun and not reflective of my actual classpecting methods whatsoever lol. So if you like your actual god tier better, like me, obvs, dont think you have to change anything, this is just for fun. like it includes non canon joke classes that i made up that should be the first hint lol)

I finally did a group of more spring inspired outfits! Even though in the spring/summer I still basically wear the same amount of layers and I’d never be comfortable in real life wearing some of these more simple or short sleeved ones, it’s okay to just take pictures in them ehehe~ Sorry for the camera quality, I tried to edit and remedy the grainyness as much as possible lol.  It’s actually really hard for me to make more simplified outfits, but I tried! Read the captions for more detail~ Literally every single item is thrifted except for a few tights and shoes which are all from ebay. ✧⁺⸜(●′▾‵●)⸝⁺✧

I was wondering if you could give me a book recommendation for fiction work written by trans authors/with trans characters for adults?

No problem! Also, if anyone wants to hear me talk about stuff like this feel free to ask, I just never get these kinds of anon requests.

I actually don’t read a ton of trans fiction, apart from my friends’ work and the stuff I edit, so it’s hard for me to make recommendations. Like I know of the books “Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars” by Kai Cheng Thom and “Small Beauty” by Jia Qing Wilson-Yang, and you should definitely check those out bc they’re trans women writing on trans characters. But I haven’t read them, so I can’t say what works and doesn’t work in those novels or if there’s anything to watch out for. There’s also a lot of new work coming out right now in the form of trans fiction anthologies, like the “Meanwhile, Elsewhere” trans sci-fi anthology - one of the editors of that book, Casey Plett, has some interesting (but white & vexing) fiction work of her own - but I really don’t want to recommend anything from Topside Press bc they’re gross … their previous trans story collection (”The Collection”) was also edited by two white ppl and it ended up being nearly all white as well as openly racist at some points, and there’s other stuff I’ve heard about them, so yeah.

The anthology of fiction by trans women of color I’m co-editing has been in the works for the past couple of years. I’m hoping we’ll finally be able to release it for sale within the next month or so, but I can’t make any promises, so here’s a draft of it you can download. (Don’t post that link anywhere, please). The best trans fiction I’ve ever read is still Jasmine Kabale Moore’s “The Girl and the Apple” from our anthology, but there’s a lot of other good stuff there too. And some writers from our anthology, like Gillian Ybabez, have been posting more of their fiction online (check out her site).
