My first clip (*updated*)

This is my first serious video clip, shot with our HV20 in our recent trip to Squaw Valley, home of the Winter Olympics of 1960. Editing was done with iMovie ‘05, which is a pleasure to work with btw. I can provide it in higher resolution if required — the HD version is impressive, but for now, here is a QVGA version uploaded at YouTube. Feedback is appreciated! Sorry for some non-steady pans btw, our tripod needed greasing…

The idea is to create 10-15 of these clips in the next 2-3 years from our various vacations and then burn a Blu-Ray or HD-DVD disk for our collection in the full 1080i resolution (burners will be cheaper by then).

Update: Here is a high-res h.264 version of the video, DVD quality at 480p (use “save as”). The file size is 62 MBs. Some of the transitions got slightly screwed up after the de-interlacing/re-encoding, but it’s not a big deal…
