It’s the end of the year and we’re cutting some videos for a local boatbuilder. We offered to cut them a little video xmas card link that they could include on their holiday cards. . . nothing serious, just light fun.
Someone, can’t quite remember who asked me
about this program where we sent a balloon
into near space with a GoPro attached.
Here it is . . . lots of fun.
There is an unusual trend happening in cameras today and I wonder how long it will last. Put simply, professional cameras are becoming increasingly difficult to use.
Today, I had to digitize from tape. It was almost a surreal experience. For twenty plus years that was my life. And then in about an instance it was gone. I hadn’t loaded from tape of any kind in probably two years. It was so disorienting, like driving through an old neighborhood that you hadn’t been back to in decades. The cords, cables, even the menu items on the decks came back as if trying to remember a dream. Almost a melancholy experience. I do like seeing those decks stacked up on my edit desk though and miss the blinking lights. Hell, I even had to clean the heads. Amazing that I had chemtronic sticks and head cleaner hanging around. Sigh.
Post Office Editorial working in conjunction with Penobscot Bay Media have finished a complete redesign for world renowned boat builders Morris Yachts. The work included filming all new content in and around the yards as well as incorporating archival imagery shot by nautical photographers Alison Langley, Onne Van der Waal and Billy Black. The result is a complete website redesign including several new video elements on Morris Service, Production and Sales. Visit the new site here: www.morrisyachts.com
