Capturing a Memory: A Day at Home

I was surprised at how much I liked this…

I got this “Day at Home” idea from Cody Wanner when he did his own home/first person POV video.

When I tried the whole concept, I just went with a GoPro and was not really pleased with the initial footage. The quality was grainy, shots were kind of wobbly, the colors weren’t my normal quality…the list goes on.

But when I decided “I’m going to capture this memory!” and just threw the footage in the final cut pro x, found a wistful song that I liked, and started editing…it was like magic. After about 5-10 minutes of editing I already knew that this was going to be one of my favorite videos I’ve made to date.

Even if it doesn’t get any views on YouTube…I am SO HAPPY I made this video.

The nostalgia I already feel when I rewatch this is powerful and I know that nostalgia will only grow in the years to come.

I can’t encourage you enough to try and really capture memories of your family. Memory is a fickle thing and little treasures like this are worth the effort.
