It was my goal to have a fully completed Cow Cavalry by this date. Due however to certain providential hindrances, The Cow Cavalry is not yet fully completed. But, I may assure you that progress is being made. With my grandfather in the hospital last week, nothing at all was done by way of editing, but since he is fully recovered and safely home, I returned this week to a dedicated scouring over the project, adjusting audio levels and tweaking video. The music is finding it's place in the timeline and transitions are also in the works!
Amongst the individual items accomplished were the following:
All in all though, I am pleased with the progress made this past week. Next week shall be filled primarily with video work, rather than audio...and it is possible that I may be completely finished by next Saturday.
From a young age, I was instilled with a love of History--from the days that I sat at my mother's feet, listening to her read to my sisters and myself, to the current day when I attempt to keep up with the stack of books that form an unruly pile on my desk--I have loved History. I especially have a keen interest in American History--and within that broad spectrum, there are certain decades which evoke a passion that drives me to tell the stories of the men and women who walked before me.
This then, is the vision of Freedom's Light Films: to tell the stories of our Forebearers in this, the Land of Freedom. A land that was founded upon the principles of Biblical Law...for without the Law of Christ our King, there is no true freedom to be found. John 8:32 declares: "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." This is not freedom of an autonomous nature, which leads to anarchy and therefore tyranny, but true freedom. One of the best definitions of real freedom I have ever seen is encapsulated by Montesquieu: "liberty can consist only in the power of doing what we ought to will, and in not being constrained to do what we ought not to will." There are many examples of Christian character and courage amongst our forefathers.
Freedom's Light Films accepts the challenge of bringing stories of Heroes of Faith and Country to you. Please join us in pursuing a study of American History!
