Well, this was more of a challenge than I originally thought. First, video taping yourself can be a frustrating. Especially when you find out that the Pentax Optio's video is nowhere near HD quality. This was Survivorman-like taping and I have some great shots where I'm only half on the screen. Artistic, but not the thing I was going for. I eventually figured it out and fortune smiled on me when Ann joined me later in the day to help with the camera work.
Once the video taping was done it was quite a trick to get it all edited together and then dub over the essay. The TakeMeFishing rules limit video submissions to ninety seconds and it's only when you try to read something that you realize how short a period of time ninety seconds really is. Rewrite, rewrite, rewrite and then edit, edit, edit.
Finally, ninety-seconds of material.
I'll leave it to you to tell me if it's any good.
I'll eventually write the longer form of the essay. While the video version scratched the itch, there's more than ninety seconds of tape sitting on my mental cutting room floor.
