Video travelogue of my journey across Costa Rica in the second week of September 2009.
Although the get-up is somewhat goofy, it was a nice way to practice and refine my video editing chops for future documentary/narrative endeavors. I'm also fond of the way that Juana Molina's songs complement the adventure of the first half ("Un Día"), and particularly the second half ("Vive Solo") which posits the Thoreauvian solitude of her lyrics - and my voyage - against the friendly backdrop of Nature and her creatures.
For proper presentation of this video, please ensure that you see the "HD is on" logo on the right side of the frame, and also enlarge to full-screen by clicking the icon on the bottom-right of the frame. If you see jitters, please pause just after starting, for enough of the high-definition footage to buffer for smooth playback (this can take a minute or more). If you're still getting jitters after all that, toggle the "HD is on" logo for downscaling the video.
