The clip I made yesterday, all 34 seconds of it, took perhaps an hour and
a half to make, but that's including the time it took for me to film the all
18 bits that day (second day of filming).
The sample you saw required the cutting of four individual clips (raw
footage: 73 seconds) into the 10 cuts shown and took about half an hour of
actual editing time to create (about 1 minute editing time for each second of resulting
footage) but I had a clear outline of what I wanted to do for that clip.
The rest of the video?
I'm making it up as I go along, unfortunately.
Outtakes … um … and for a good … um …
I don't even have all the bits I wanted filmed yet (I'm only in The
Office two days a week) and there's a strong tempation to reshoot a bunch of
what I already have (oh, and a transcript? “Uh … uh right there. Blah!
Take 37. Ahem. Yeah, right.”).
I wonder if I will ever finish this …

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
