A Year in the Making...

Toward the end of last summer, Debra approached me with an idea. Usually, her ideas are pretty scary and involve the purchase of a mini-horse. (Thanks for that, Amanda!) However, this time, I have to admit that I got wrapped in her idea, and as usual, made it a much more complicated affair.

Put simply, Debra wanted a video that she could air on FlyerTV, UD's campus channel, that would provide some publicity for her office, the Office of Community Standards & Civility. She wanted something subtle and funny. One afternoon, we took the video cam out and spent about two hours driving around in the setting sun filming for her video. Yes, I did make her sign a release - no illegal, hidden spycams here, no siree bob!

Then the editing began. That's pretty much what delayed the release of her video until today. I happened to be cleaning out some old hard drives and found the 75% completed video and decided it was high time that I actually finished it for her. I hope I've managed to build some kind of suspence and excitement about just what her idea was...cause I've run out of vague, ambiguous terms to describe it.

So without further ado, here's Debra's first starring film role (at least on a public release!):

I think it was actually more fun for me editing it than it was for her to act in it. Of course, now that Debra's seen the end product, I don't know if she's going to be interested in doing another...

LOL!
