Number 14 - The Meaning and Significance of Number 14

Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith. – Reinhold Niebuhr

Rewatching interesting films, I also want to edit them. Coming across out of context videos made to not really make sense, which is actually the point. If you want to see a compilation of interesting footage put together, there is an audience who enjoy this kind of content. Myself included I have become keen on creating them too!

At the bottom of this page is the first video I uploaded last night of the movie The Lobster. Already a weird movie this cut gives it a slightly more dark comedy vibe to it. Being a Romance and Science Fiction story, I thought the final product holds some entertainment value. You be the judge because I am interested in making more.

Still making more videos like this shall take a lot of time and effort. For example, it will take the length of the media to make sure nothing is missing and trims out the quality clips. Adding 30-1 minutes to under 100 edits depending on how long that particular video goes. I wish I could at least get 2 videos and 2 posts published a day but there is only so much I can do in a daily 24 hours…

Determination, energy, and courage appear spontaneously when we care deeply about something. We take risks that are unimaginable in any other context. – Margaret J. Wheatley
