Squaw Village in November

We spent Thanksgiving at the Village of Squaw, home of the Winter Olympics of 1960. We booked an apartment there for 4 days and we had a great time — minus the fact that there was not much snow so my JBQ could not ski. I love these small apartments as they are fully equipped, so I can cook there. We didn’t hike as the weather was very cold (-12C to -4C), so we stayed in for the most part and… watched lots of TV.

Nonetheless, I did find the time to shoot 40 minutes of video, which translated to the following 3’22” clip. HD version here.

Nice shots, the colors and some of the focus and panning are very Sofia Coppola like in style (Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette).

Some great shots with beautiful light (esp.the grass). Do they speak French there? Great titling at the end, great quad screens.

Why a hd version and a non-hd version?

No, they speak english, it’s in Sierra Nevada. As for the non-HD version, Vimeo does not allow you to embed the HD version on web pages.

Cool video. Did you do all of this in Vegas Pro? How did you put all 4 clips into one scene with the guys snowboarding and also the end with the small clips playing with credits rolling?

Yup, I used “pan/crop” in both cases. 🙂
