I feel this very video-idiolect (videolect?) of mine, jauntily clumsy and unrestrained, is growing along with the respective – progressively longer – explorative editing sessions.

Often painful and excruciating, on average vaguely counterintuitive and puzzling, the drive to compress a median 1.5 hours of lovely & relaxed chatting into approx 10 mins of bubbling-capsule-portrait-via-desktop is definitely a big challenge; nevertheless (apart from the copious perspiration of yours truly) it appears totally doable and organic in the end – and also greatly enhanced by serendipitous achievements + collateral tricks..

Would be delighted if you managed to
at/tune your brains and sense similar vibes !
