The Final Cut (Maybe)

Filed under:General — eric @ 7:35 pm

I got some great feedback on my video, and I’ve made another cut to reflect them. I inserted 11 seconds at the beginning to set up the local food idea (something I’d cut out earlier in the editing), and to make up for that time I trimmed 11 seconds in several bits throughout the rest of the video. The result is a better story, but with maybe slightly less production quality. It’s supposed to be amateur, and the story is paramount, so I’m OK with that.

What’s this for again? Think “American Idol”, only with cooking instead of singing. Hopefully “instead”, anyway. I’m not exactly known for my singing.


  1. Wooohooo!! Definitely THE next Food Network Star. Perky girls with big white teeth, eat your hearts out!

  7. Go BRO!!! I know you can do it. That is my favorite channel, besides DIY and you have quite a few of those employees beat hands down! I can’t wait to watch your show. Man, I wish I could grow food like you. :)

  9. Wow, that was great! Your tomatoes are absolutely amazing! Looks like you grew them yourself? You just made me SO hungry!

    I see you’re from Athens. I’ve been there a few times. I have friends in Hull and Comer.
