I'm going to leave it up to you to interpret the story and the message, but I will say that shooting and editing was a really interesting experience, and I'm really proud of what I came up with.
That being said, I did fight long and hard with After Effects to try to stabilize my footage. It did get kind of shaky - it was cold outside, and I was free-handing it the entire time. However, after many useless hours and several entirely futile stints in the edit suites, I was left with beautifully smooth, professional-grade footage, completely garbled and mixed up by Premier Pro. So here I am, left with shaky footage.
I hope you enjoy the video nonetheless, and I'm hoping I can get that After Effects / Premier Pro synchronization worked out for the next project.
