This series of films was taken during my summer holiday last year to North America. It was a challenge to edit because all 4 of us on the trip were taking pictures and video with everything from iPhones up to a 5D MkII. So I ended up with a mish-mash of resolutions, codecs and frame rates to deal with whilst learning Final Cut. Nothing like starting out easy!

I have seen some great slices of New York life on Vimeo (take a bow Mr Kobal). I would have loved to have joined their ranks but the truth is that 3/4 days barely gives you time to scratch the surface of the really obvious places to see in NYC. Still, its a good excuse to go back some day and we all enjoyed the Big Apple immensely.
