In homage to the Lumiere Brothers who were some of the earliest filmmakers, Andreas from solitude.dk made a call for submissions to the videoblogging community to replicate the conditions in which they filmed. Notably: less than one minute (most were about 45 seconds long); fixed camera; no zoom; no sound; no editing; and no effects.
Here a my Lumiere video, recorded in Chicago July 29, 2007
Northeast of Redding, California in the Cascade Range you will find this hidden gem. McArthur-Burney Falls moves a prodigious 100 million gallons of water a day – every day! The water is a cool 45-49 degrees.
Before we arrived here at the falls, we spent the night in McCloud at a quaint Victorian B&B called Stoney Brook. You can see additional pictures on flickr
We did not stay at the campground, but last month they just opened 12 small one room cabins that can be reserved for $65/night. Apparently reservations are sold out for 6-7 months in advance.Â
After a long day at the beach with the family I logged in to see my twitter filling up with comments coming from the Hat Factory. A bunch of video geeks were editing and hanging out at an event they were calling SF Edit.
Nathan Freitas was in from NY, and even Sarah Meyers had a stream coming in via Justin.tv – I had to go check it out. Despite my battery wimping out on me at the beach, I did have a few shots of the boys sandboarding (see last post) and wanted to get that up.
After a great Thai dinner and shower I popped on over and had a great time breaking through the 4th wall!Â
