The Pareto Principle at work

Putting in the hard work out in the field is 1000 times better than trying to work with crappy footage in the editing stage. I think a lot of work is like this. If you put the effort in the right place, it can make a world of difference. I believe this is called The Pareto Principle, but it makes me wonder what other areas I should be applying this principle in.

Today I released my video on Mt. Atsumi. Like the Nihonkoku video this was a long time coming. But unlike the Nihonkoku video, this one was much easier to edit as I had the assistance of a very good friend (who you get to meet in the video).

Also, on Sunday I climbed Mt. Maya. I was looking through the footage, and I think I have a better idea now how to make sure I get good footage. Probably the first thing is to default to my Sony camera, and only use the GoPro for moving shots and when the Sony just isn’t practical. I’m looking forward to putting that one together because I think it will be much better cinematography wise.

Focusing on the right areas it seems really does make a world of difference! Here’s hoping my lessons turn into results!
