Hinky Dinky Parlez Vou

     It looks like a lot of the sets were left in the dust, so I was thankful that in the set near the camera there were a few experienced folks.

   Note: As I had said to Meghan in one of my comments, I don’t think that my footage from the square dance turned out too well.  If I knew ahead of time what dances we’d be doing and in what order I could place the cameras in good places, but usually it’s either a hit or a miss.  I’d also forgotten to bring my tripod so I wasn’t able to get the camera shot from above.

Dance–Mr. Beveridge’s Maggot (Pride & Prejudice)

    Woo hoo! I’ve finally got a hold of my dance footage from the dance lesson Oct. 21!  It’s hard to believe it’s been 3 weeks that I have been dying to see this footage.

      After we had done our closing dance a few of the folks got together to dance Mr. Beveridges Maggot from Pride and Prejudice.  When you see the shot from above you’ve got to love all of the stuff that flies back and forth at the bottom of the screen!

boy like me, Man Like You - 20,000 Views

   Well, I thought I ‘d repost this video we made from more than 4 years ago.  It has 20,000 views on YouTube which really isn’t that many views for YouTube, but when we we were out in the yard filming it never would’ve entered our heads that thousands would watch it online.

    Here’s what I wrote when I posted this on the blog July 25, 2007:

boy like me, Man like You is one of the very first videos we made; I was 12. This song is from Rich Mullins and is a favorite of ours. Throughout this video you'll see moving shots where the camera is "rolling." We don't own a dolly so we improvised with a wagon.
While I held the camera Benjamin pulled me around the yard. Oh the life of a cameraman!
As you'll see the ride was pretty bumpy!
(No, Noah isn't related to Rich Mullins.)
