A Bit of Inspiration from The Good Line

I just saw a video that inspired me.  It is filled with color and joy and whatever else you want to ascribe to people having a powerfully good time. This is the Holi Festival of Colors in Spanish Fork, Utah.

The video was created by The Good Line. This company makes documentaries for clients, some who are civic or non-profit agencies. Others clients with a need to tell their story.

The steps that they took to create this video are a lot more advanced that what you might have imagined for yourself.

In reality, the steps to making a video are very basic:
  • Pre-planning or knowing what you want to do.
  • Gearing up on equipment or using what you have.
  • Recording.
  • Importing video footage into your editing device.
  • Edit. Or Not.
  • Export the footage.
  • Upload to video web host.
  • Share.
There are a million choices on how easy or complicated you want to make your video or film or whatever euphemisms people want to use to talk about the difference between amateur, activist, professional or commercial storytelling on screen.

I use the word video. Doesn’t really matter. There is space for all of us to tell a story or two. More if you got them.On this day may you be splashed with inspiration and desire.
