I’d like to get this arrangement.
Here’s a new video with our quartet Makeshift:
Our partner and percussionist Scott Rubox Pausal did the camera work. I worked on it over 4 weekends, and in the process taught myself Adobe Premiere elements.
The song Bye Bye Blues was written in 1930 and was a hit for Les Paul and Mary Ford in 1952.
Some tech notes:
Audio recorded on a Zoom H1 2-track digital recorder
Audio equalized. reverbed and mastered in Audacity opensource freeware. Final audio cut is a combination of two takes. The audio track is available for download at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16170547/ByeByeBlues_2011.mp3
Video shot with Panasonic DMC LX5 in SD widescreen. Nice wide angle on this camera – 24mm equiv.
Video edited with Adobe Premiere Elements 8.0.
I was looking for an old video edit that was not in my digital records, so I pulled out the old camcorder to check the 8mm tapes. When I plugged the camcorder into our new Windows 7 PC, a Windows Live Gallery dialogue box popped up giving some options for importing the video. One of the options was “make DVD of the entire tape”.
I tried it and it works like a charm. It broke the 60 minutes of video into about 18 chapters and created a menu with preview video. WOOT! I’ve got about 15 hours of 8mm recordings from 1992 – 2005. I’ll be transferring them all to DVD in the next few months.
BTW, I found the brief video project I was looking for :
Sunday afternoon rehearsal with some caroling friends.
Amazing video, shot with a $300 camera called GoPro HD, available on amazon.com
I think the man prevailed here with the better moves, but you gotta give the dog props and preferences, cuz he’s like, A DOG! (linkage for FB viewers)
