Been a while. Not the adventuring. That hasn’t stopped one bit. But it has been a while since I’ve cut together an adventure-oriented video purely for fun. I’ve been learning lots about video editing, sound mixing, color grading, workflows, pitfalls to avoid, better storytelling, and even more (thanks, YouTube and all the great creators there!).
Really, the next logical step is to apply the new knowledge by practice and repeat. Rinse and repeat.
So here it is: a quick 85-second cut of an afternoon adventure with 2 good friends on the coast of northern California. Make sure that sound is turned on. Good headphones & speakers definitely recommended.
New sights, that gorgeous late afternoon light, spring blossoms, the open road, wind in your face and through your hair, aerial perspectives of where the land meets the sea, waves, magical sound of waves, all meshed together with an uplifting track by a.m. beef (music licensing via artlist.io). Videography + editing by yours truly.
Thanks to Vidu Love & Nimna Perera for being great models ;) , and hat tip to Vidu also in getting some behind the scenes shots of me on that gorgeous afternoon!
