The Story Behind drop the bomb productions
It all began with a video. This video, to be specific:
Charge of the Light Brigade on Vimeo
(Well, at least it begins with that video if we're talking about drop the bomb productions, this video was the first appearance, but it was not the beginning of my interest in videos and video editing
My previous forays into video editing had me using Eric Mesa Films. However, when it came time to collaborate on this video with my brother, I wanted to come up with something more creative. I was creating the credits with a forerunner to Powerpoint. There was a bomb which was ticking down to explosion and I thought it looked pretty neat. I came up with Drop the Bomb Productions, which later evolved to drop the bomb productions. Unfortunately, the program malfunctioned when it came time to create the video and commit it to tape, the bomb didn't show up. That was fine with me - from then on, my video production studio would be known as drop the bomb productions. When I later got SonicFoundry Video Factory I created the final image of the exploding bomb which would be my trademark from then on.
Since then I have always used that introduction to my completed videos with only one exception, my Sept 11 video (which can be found ). I obviously felt it would be quite insensitive of me to have that opening image considering what had happened on 11 Sept.
