    just putting some notes for myself here about my progress with video editing

    ok i included these in tags but ran out of tag space + just realized i wanna make it a separate post for myself to remember and idk feel proud of myself for

    + what i said about the latest canucks wincam: getting better at jumpcuts + incorporating black screen + speed distortion & timing in general

    also since i ran out of space — 5th on my top fancams list is tough. prolly between bowie captaincy narrative vs beezer ice baby. the beezer cut has good timing & (partially outside of my control but) Really Nice Clips in terms of like videography/visual aesthetic. captain bo tho also had good timing (still feel clever for syncing the count-off to the bouncy balls) + i love a narrative + the range of clips i got & how i synced them to lyrics was Really Satisfying. ((side note: it’s a shame i have like 2.5 canucks twt connections bc i think those fancams could actually reach more But i just do not like the secondary teams of most canucks twt ppl so i have few canucks mutuals and Zero traction on canucks twt. somehow it was Super Easy for to find flyers twt friends tho. this is funny to me bc my hockeyblr experience is basically the inverse — solid canucksblr connections, maybe 3.5 flyersblr friends + a conciliatory cornchip))

    anyway i’m making note of all of this here bc i’m Really proud of my progress + won’t remember to journal this in my actual physical journal prolly.

    i picked up video editing/fancamming late july 2020 when i was on hockey hiatus & had deep-dived japanese pro wrestling (the pandemic has been A Ride). i saw ppl making fancams for american pro wrestling & hockey & figured ‘this is a niche i could have fun with’ and just Did That for like 6 months. that’s how i finally got twitter in late november 2020, bc i wanted to share my fancams & bc the japanese pro-wrestling fandom is barely limping along on tumblr. around february 2021 i had a lot of really shitty stuff happening irl & i slowly went silent on all social media until like august/july when i reappeared here on hockeyblr. i missed hockey & i had burnt out on wrestling (deeply toxic twitter fandoms + semi-traumatic familial stress can really kill a whole hyperfixation boy howdy. and i Know a lot of twitter fandom is baseline hellscape anyway but wrestle twitter is A Nightmare. -5mil/10 would Never recommend. wrestling is a Fascinating media form. its fans are Demented.)

    Anyway, first hockey fancam i made was the eichs one bc I Am Not Immune To A Narrative (anyone who reads all my tags is prolly tired of me using this word. what does ‘narrative’ mean anymore? it means i connected some dots & had feelings about it. and if the dots i connected don’t actually mean shit well let me be). body autonomy!! in sports!! one of the notoriously most vicious bitchy & vocal characters in pro hockey!! thinly veiled legal threats via pr statements!! the vilification of billionaire owners & corporations!! How Could I Resist? i couldn’t. the narrative needed a neat lil video with funky lil music. so jack got his trade and i hopped back in the fancam saddle.

    canucks were playing tragic and flyers were kinda waffling. there wasn’t anything fun for me to mash together Yet. then of course, we started december with bruce and that when the spark caught fire hallelujah i had something Good to fancam. bc as i keep reiterating — my heart is in a good narrative. give me something i can interpret as a story and i will find feelings to have about it, whether by opining on this lil blog or making a fancam or both. i’ve done a lot of both.

    so the canucks do their lil streak, i get lots of inspiration for fancams and it oils the gears so i start getting more ideas and making all of them and now here we are. i’m also back on twitter but hockey this time, bc i inevitably went trawling for clips + news & felt the incurable itch to share my lil opinions & make friends. it’s been a little over a month and i have made 9 individual player cams + 8 wincams + the flyers captain narrative sadcam + 1 very rough goalie sadcam. that is 19 videos over 40 days, ie about a video every other day. good god. (as a reminder to myself: at my peak of wrestle fandom, i was averaging 1 video a week. i was Much Slower then but also so hypercritical that it took me ages to have confidence to say i considered anything done enough to share. also wrestle footage is harder to find to be fair. i haven’t yet had to record & pull from a hockey livestream like i had to with wrestling bc hockey twt works faster than i could to clip anyway. i may start pulling my own clips from raw tho if i’m looking for something specific.)

    okay!! so in conclusion: oh my god i make so much stuff now. and i’m happy with the stuff i make for the most part. and i’m continuing to learn & develop skills from it & honing those skills. i deserve to feel pretty cool about this. this hobby in a hobby i’ve been doing for the past year and a half is like interesting and rewarding. okay.

    #don’t reblog #likes or replies are ok if y’all have like idk questions? comments? concerns? mostly i’m diarying here tbh #aily talks#not hockey #kind of mostly. hockey contributes but it is not The Point here #blog stuff #also not fully accurate but prolly best tag for me to find this in the future when i inevitably wanna re-dissect my feelings

    #also this feels kinda silly so it’s going in the tags but: making the flyers captain sadcam felt like i exorcised some feelings #it was Very cathartic. i also genuinely think that track is mourning but ultimately hopeful so i felt ok ending it on beezer as the focus #idk how most ppl are taking it on that perspective. i think some ppl think i mean that beezer is doomed in the cycle but i genuinely don’t #repeating myself again but: i Am at heart an optimist when my brain isn’t fighting me tooth and nail #maybe it makes me naive. maybe it makes me believe in some magical thinking. but i ultimately don’t think things can be bad forever #and it Sucks that roux won’t get the fruits of the good he’s sown as The Generational Flyer. but maybe beezer will and isn’t that something? #that beezer learned under him was inspired by him and Could be the brighter future that roux helped build? #idk taking hockey too deep again. gazing too far in the narrative. maybe this is how i’ve survived being over invested in truly Awful teams #but i gotta believe in something and it’s not god or the government but it is the things that bring us together like silly lil ice shoe men #aily talks#asks#anonymous

    observations from cutting footage again:

    matty highmore may legitimately be the funniest canuck. his goofy lil ass making the biggest faces and just sliding around on the ice. biggest tryer award, for sure (which is a surprise to me bc like a month ago before he came back from injury, i would’ve given that to garly)

    huggy skates with the puck like he is being chased for his life. i know it just feels like it bc that’s how his face is but my god, you could edit a bear or bull run behind him and his expressions would suit the situation Every Time

    #the way i saw a slowmo clip of matty blocking a shot and gasped ‘matty no!!’ is he my new emotional support himbo son?? maybe #canucks lb#aily talks#op#matthew highmore#quinn hughes

    adding to my collection of specific lil garly facts: apparently a catholic (which i assume about Most boston hockeys tbh) & signs the cross before games

    #all of his tiny lil neurotic Things. he is just a collection of lil ticks that i am observing under a microscope. i am Fascinated by him #like boston hockey boy. boston catholic. masshole spirit. tiny & mad about it. fiddles with Everything (see: mics & penalty box camera) #precise lil wry & direct speech patterns. always touching his face. drinks all liquids like it’s a mission and he has never failed. #obsessed with sharks but refuses to enter the ocean even on a boat. was told to quit hockey so many times and just refused. #hidden away in the desert for years everyone thought he was a weird addon for the oel trade. turned out to prolly be the actual acquisition #Never shuts up around the boys perhaps only surpassed by motormouth miller. cuddles the boys and gets as close as possible to talk #skates like a fucking Freak. fucking low on his edges crouched beside the net but also Constant Spinning music box ass ballerino on ice #I’m Obsessed but how can you not be he’s so Fucking Weird i wanna poke him with a pipette and blink slowly behind lab goggles at him #anyway i’m fine #canucks lb#vancouver canucks#conor garland#aily talks#op

    noting for myself but also to let y’all know i do see y’all — twt is nice for the instant dopamine of the viewcounter, but nothing hits like tags on my fancams just having feelings. yes pls keep having these feelings with me

    another very for me aside — i am over here like ‘oh I Am Feeling A Decade Of Flyers History To Theme Of Legacy’ but also ‘SASHA GALCHENYUK HIT 600 GAMES IN THE NHL WHEN PPL SAID HE WOULDN’T GET RE-SIGNED’ but also ‘hehehe the canucks beat The Caps and Petey Is Back and yay i have footage for a wincam’. tumblr post getting notes rn is the flyers captain narrative sadcam. Meanwhile my tweet currently popping off is *checks notes* crosby mozzarella stick lore. feeling very hhmmm what is consciousness or feelings rn??

    #it is sickly validating to know so many of y’all still have richie feels the way i do #sometimes i worry i’m the only flyers fan who’s still just Stuck on the repercussions of trading richie #i said on twt like yesterday? clau is technically the king who wasn’t supposed to be king. it was supposed to be richie. that’s so fucked up #which is not to say i don’t love and adore g as captain bc i genuinely don’t know how i’d feel about the flyers without the roux era #but it is just such a Stark fork in the road. this is something We Know changed things and we’ll never know how different it would’ve been #aily talks#blog stuff

    oh man remember when i made the toff canucks revenge cam and said ‘wow i’m gonna hurt myself so good’?

    brainworm really bit me with some 2010s flyers history and just clipped a richie goal assisted by clau and Wow I Am Gonna Hurt Myself So Good.

    #bucky bud if you see this it’s happening. thx for the roux playlists i’m going to drown in them #also have the bleachers tiny desk concert on in the bg rn #if i don’t have to take a cry break to make this edit it will be a Miracle #also ftr it’s gonna be a 2-parter bc i’m refusing not to use The Full Track. or at least it’ll be split for twt. #gonna watch it to see how i feel about keeping it one piece for tumblr. i think 2 parts might be good formatting tho. for like tone. #aily talks
