    Editing videos for beginners – Booze at Ten 005

    Editing videos for beginners – Booze at Ten 005

    In this show we take a very high level overview of my editing and filming process for BartenderHQ content. I touch on a number of editing options from free to professional along with what they can do.



















    Luma Fusion







    If you want to do everything from filming to edit and upload just on your phone, Luma Fusion is the best there is. Its a one off very reasonable app purchase, which you can use across multiple devices.







    iMovie







    Free on iOS as well as any Mac, iMovie is a great starting point for anyone needing to do the basics like adding titles and music to videos. Its limited in that it only supports a small number of layers, but for basic editing its absolutely adequate.







    Final Cut Pro X







    As far as I can tell Final Cut Pro uses the same underlaying engine as iMovie but with all the more advanced features you’d need, no practical limits to numbers of streams other than what your hardware can support etc. Final Cut integrates with Apple Motion for animated motion graphics or creating custom title animations too. The learning curve is much steeper than iMovie but that is because of the scope of control that it gives you.







    DaVinci Resolve







    DaVinci Resolve by Black Magic is a fully featured cross platform edit suite that can do everything from the timeline through colour grading, motion graphics and more. It runs just as well on Linux as Mac or PC so if you’re after something with power and flexibility, its well worth a look.







    Adobe Premiere







    As with many of the Adobe suite of products, Premiere has a solid base of fans, and it integrates well with After Effects. This allows Premiere to create motion effects and compositing easily. Again, this works across Windows and Mac systems, so you’re not limited to a single hardware platform. It is a solid choice, but again with a learning curve.

    The Flash – SpiceEEPU Cocktail | Booze at Ten 003 (Abridged)

    The Flash – SpiceEEPU Cocktail | Booze at Ten 003 (Abridged)

    On Today’s “abridged” Booze at Ten, our Flash Cocktail, the SpiceEEPU cocktail. I was planning a full show today talking about how I edit these shows (as I want to support other bartenders creating their own thing!) but it was not to be.



















    This morning my youngest son was at hospital for his regular chemotherapy, and on returning home decided to turn the bathroom taps on full. This resulted in my office/studio below being flooded, and most of the day being taken up with clean up!







    So apologies, here’s a SpiceEEPU cocktail, our The Flash special to tide you over and we should be back with an interview again tomorrow!







    The Flash SpiceEEPU Cocktail Recipe







    * 50ml Old J Spiced* 60ml Cranberry Juice* 15ml Lime Juice* Top with Energy Drink (eg Red Bull)







    Build over ice, garnish with lime







    Apologies for the short show but the flooded studio was a bit of a drama today!

    The Magic Bartender, Mat Parrott – Booze at Ten 002

    The Magic Bartender, Mat Parrott – Booze at Ten 002

    Mat Parrott, the Magic Bartender joins us for the second Booze at Ten.



















    The Magic Bartender







    Mat started his bartending career by accident off the back of juggling and has since become a very well respected bartender within TGI Fridays UK and beyond. He’s incorporated his love for magic as a part of his bartending for the past number of years and we discuss some of his influences in both the bar industry and magic in this show.







    Mat has been a finalist in the TGI Fridays Bartender Challenge multiple times in recent years and brings his magic to the bar to make his guests experiences even more memorable every time.

    Having a Cancer Kid during COVID 19

    Having a Cancer Kid during COVID 19

    Hey everyone, I just wanted to update you on what’s going on right now – the show was paused for a little while because my three year old who’s undergoing Leukaemia treatment has been in and out of the hospital the past week.



















    I want to reassure you, it’s not because he had COVID – he was tested twice and negative both times. But with Leukaemia treatment and chemotherapy ongoing he’s in the extremely vulnerable category and isolated for 12 weeks.







    Because of COVID restrictions we weren’t able to get my wife food and supplies while she was in the hospital with Ted and they barely got any sleep, and I’m now having a small taste of that while trying to let her catch up on some rest.







    We’ll be back, probably this weekend with a new later night format rather than the morning show. Stay tuned!
