  4. Sand.
    It's everywhere but we pay no attention to it.
    I recorded a 6 inch section of sand in a slow moving creek that runs into the ocean. The water is only about one inch deep and it comes in random pulses, influenced by many factors just a few yards away.

    When the water level drops, it leaves sand-images all over the beach. One of my slide presentation shows the aftermath. vimeo.com/1060154

    This video is the early formation of those images while thin sheet of water running down the beach. Exposing layers of different colors of sand, then deposit it elsewhere.

    What really facinating is, the ever evolving abstract images right in front of your eyes. Nature's drawing table that never repeat itself. Circumstances are never the same moment to moment.

    If you have a good eyes and sit way back from the screen, you'll see 'monsters, faces, skulls, bones, pre historic bird head and other images I even missed watching this video.
    Please open to full screen play.

    The first 20 second is the compressed video (1500X) of 6 minutes real-time that follows. If you're not the kind of person who wants to watch slow moving anything, then you can just exit.

    However, I promise you that you will see 6 minutes go by so fast and want to see it again... with the soundtrack naturally :)
    Put your headset on for this soundtrack. I don't think your desktop speakers can do such low frequency as you'll hear.

    For the next viewer, please point out in the time-line where you see something worthy to note. Not everyone is artistic and see things in random images, but if you bring attention to the section maybe those will see the same image as you did.
    Consider it your discovery FIRST :)

    IE: alien head at 3:45 and a few seconds more at the bottom left/center section, occupying about 1/3 of the window.

    If you like it... let me know.
    I can assemble a longer running video that will top this one from the footage I already have.

    Taped on the beach in Oregon, near Waldport.
    I can give you the Google-Map address if you wish.

    Technical details:
    - Taped with a stock Canon HV20
    - Cine mode, 24P with 'shade' WB settings
    - CPF used from Hoya
    - Editor: Edius Neo
    - Color corrected... slightly, and bit of contrast added as well.

    Enjoy :)

  5. I'm still playing with the settings on the iMovie software when I save my project with QuickTime. I want to participate in one of the Vimeo projects so I chose this fly to help me with it. We'll see if this qualify me on the project.

One of the things we learned in college for videography was to take one subject and make it interesting, even though in reality, it's boring with one shot. I wish I still had my footage from then so I could use it as a sample, but I'll do a new one to show you what I mean. I'm going to take a mailbox, and only the mailbox, and make it interesting by showing different shots, pans, and angles. You can take anything you want, as long as it's one subject only. Could be a person, a thing, animal, tree, you name it.
I'll upload the mailbox later once i'm done shooting and editing.
Have fun! *Remember, play with pans, close-ups, different angles...
