Exactly 2 months ago today (August 31) I had my second installment of Ken's Bird Photography Class. It started at Reifel and ended up at the Tsawwassen ferry terminal where we watched a small group of Harlequin Ducks working their way down the spit. I made a minute long camera video of the ducks which is a little wobbly as I only had a monopod. The footage was interesting enough that I eventually downloaded and learned how to use Microsoft Movie Maker. I then found some free music on the web and put together a video that ended up just under 2 minutes in length.
You, fellow FVB forum viewers, have the privilege of being my test audience. I have it on YouTube and on Flickr though in both cases I have flagged it as private. I'll make it public once I make sure that it's not going to be a flop. Links to both are provided below. The private status means that that on YouTube you will need to log into a gmail account to view it while on Flickr the 'guest pass' built into the URL should be sufficient to view it.
I was having fun trying out new stuff. There are a lot of firsts here (Movie Maker, adding music, publishing to YouTube) so it is a little rough around the edges.
Anyways, enjoy and please comment, criticize or suggest improvements. On with the show...
During my courses in the summer I was able to experience IMovie and Apple CPUs and Windows Movie Maker. I like IMovie better. However, you could be in the same situation I am in and only have access to Windows Movie Maker.
