Dear Lightworks users and producers!

A two years ago, I was totally newbie in film editing. Made few shorts on Vegas, I couldn't even say "connected footage", I was only photographer - not film maker. There was a big change then, I was invited to ethnological project of some Polish folk friends - for going to Kenya and Uganda, making a doc-film. After month-travel I came back and started to edit all of the lots of DV material. Of course - with failure, it was too much for me and for my computer! And I found You. And Lightworks.

I would like to say thanks to Forum Community, with yours tutorials, advices, questions and solved problems I manage to learn editing in Lightworks and made my first move in 3 months. I shared lots of your problems with Beta versions, although much of them you found and solved before me Thanks for Admins and Producers for sharing this NLE to public - your job is like godsend for a film budget like $ 0,00. But yet, I hope you don't need to beg for food to make this work, do you?

If You like to see and share film, it's available with English subtitles on YouTube:

With best regards,
zb

Excellent. I enjoyed watching the film. It was engaging and interesting throughout. I have never been to Africa but the film gave me an insight into life in rural Kenya.

Thank you, shaunthesheep! I'm not sure is it humourous in English? On the few travellers' festival the reaction of audience was very expressive! How about you?

I enjoyed the film, also. I think it is well done.

On the issue of humor, I laughed through the section on snow. "Maybe I can die."

Of course, if I were Maasai, I would be rolling in the aisles over that fellow jumping in a totally useless manner.

In the U.S., I am sure the "peanut gallery" would be abuzz with "hippy" humor.

Parts of it were humourous, yes.

I loved every bit of it! No need to intellectualise. It's beautiful and a worthy contribution. And, yes, it's fun to watch and amusing, while informative J.
