Film Club Meeting
Is this really the July video? Come on.
No, silly, this isn’t the only July video. We celebrated Independence Day and decided to film it. Expect a new video soon.
What is the true first P3NC1L video?
For months now, I’ve been struggling to remember which is older: Spy Academy or In the Pocket. Finally, after thorough investigation, I’ve deduced that filming for In the Pocket began around Monday, January 2, 2012, 7:51:42 PM, whereas filming for Spy Academy began around Sunday, January 8, 2012, 3:09:50 PM.
I would like to bring to your attention that the timestamp metadata for Spy Academy is corrupted in some manner. For example, I noticed when I originally edited the piece that I was missing a substantial amount of footage (the scene explaining the clones). Unusually, the footage before that scene is timestamped for Monday, January 2, 2012, and the footage after what’s missing is marked for Sunday, January 8, 2012. I clearly remember filming the entire video in one day.
After consideration, I’ve deduced that we filmed In the Pocket on January 2 and I edited it in the following days. Although, what else is unusual is that the In the Pocket soundtrack was created Sunday, January 8, 2012, 8:02:53 PM. This is especially unusual given that filming took place on January 2, 2012. I could not locate the instrumental MusicLab version.
After some more digging, I found the lyrics to Playground Swag. The .docx was created on Monday, January 2, 2012, 1:20:30 PM, further suggesting that we hung out all day on January 2. The two prevailing theories are this:
A. We hung out all day January 2, filming Spy Academy from 3:09:50 PM to 6:22:34 PM. Then, several hours after killing the camera battery (I do recall its battery had died), we filmed In the Pocket on my DroidX at 7:51:42 PM. What confuses me about this theory is that we wrote the lyrics to two music videos and then filmed a different video altogether. This leads me to believe another theory.
B. We hung out January 2, dreaming about making videos. We shot In the Pocket at 7:51:42 PM, and I stayed up all night editing it (either that night or a few days later). Then, we met again on January 8, watched the video, fantasized about becoming big on YouTube, create P3NC1L, and ran off to film Spy Academy.
What do you remember? There is so much to learn.
