  • I found lots of bugs on Vegas Pro 9. I really hate using buggy software. #

Water & Wind

While the sea life spends the day like any other day, by drifting in the oceans, the humans share the fun in their own way. The video tries to convey the message that we should share the space with other species without getting in their way.

This is going to be my entry to the Ubuntu video competition. It’s comprised from previously unused footage I had lying around. Now I need to figure out how to fit this 00:57 seconds of video in just 2.5 MBs of filesize, in an unoptimized Ogg Theora version no less, and it has to be fully tagged! I foresee some sleepless nights trying to fit it.

Fish footage was shot with the Canon SX200 IS digicam at the Monterrey Bay Aquarium, and the kite surfing scenes were shot with my Canon HV20 close to the San Mateo bridge. HD version and .mp4 HD download here.
