Editing and wondering

I’m involved in a project to cut and merge material from several DVDs into one long DVD. The DVDs consist of old 16mm home movies of my Italian family, converted and burned onto several disks. With DVDs as my starting point, this means having to go in “reverse” by converting the DVDs back to a workable format. But it’s possible, and they’ve been converted back to .avi files. Wonderful software, Adobe Premier Pro; in addition to chopping away the unwanted, I can make clips play longer. Old home movies tend to play on the fast side, even more so when converted to DVD.

Seeing people I’ve written about in Half Italian who are now deceased is wonderful, but it does makes me wonder if the book will ever get published.
