Go Big or Go Bust: Day 188 (on the chaos of a web series edited by someone learning Final Cut 7 and X and spread over eight years of hard drives)

Mr. Green isn't showing me any sympathy at all.  He has his challenges with the lawn mower and his top-secret-chemistry projects.  (Nothing like Breaking Bad, I assure you.)  But how I would like to have some 1920 x 1080 files to work with, some consistency and order instead of this chaos.  Mr. Green loves to quote Emerson to me: “Consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds.” 

This is what I'm dealing with in assembling the elements for the *highlights reel*.  And instead of writing, am going with the old  'picture is worth a thousand words'.   Look ... and weep

 This took two days.   Note the various, less than ideal sizes of the elements.
