The video below took me about 30-40 hours to make.
From the start, I had a clear vision of what I wanted from it, including the storyline, a few of the quotes, and some of the images.
I didn’t know how the video would end, though.
I started anyway.
I shot 95% of the video footage I needed.
I still didn’t know how to end the video.
I finished editing about 50% of the video and still didn’t have an ending.
When recording the voice over, the adorable four year old frequently asked, “Are we done yet?”
I had the perfect ending for the video.
Before taking on a project, plan everything you can, but don’t let not having everything 100% laid out stop you from picking up momentum.
It’s likely some of your best ideas will come after you already started.
