Yeah, there's just not that many "end-products" I can get behind. I think I could sell Tempurpedic mattresses,...maybe, but I REALLY love those.
That last edit was AWESOME ! Loved it.

The last edit was the actual last shot from "The Great Train Robbery," the subject of that final stamp. The movie is famous for that shot, for being a very early example of parallel cutting, and, questionably, for being the very first Western. There is a legend that at least one member of an early audience stood up and shot back at the screen. Kinda like the stories of audiences panicking in France at a Lumiere Brothers film that featured a train coming straight at the camera.

All the stamp edits were conceived and executed many months ago. One thing I love about Final Cut Express, the editing software I'm just getting used to, is that I can lay down my narrative track and then place cutaways and illustrations on the video tracks above. Then I can nudge them around or experiment with composite effects rather casually.
