Gregory Bald

We had been planning on hiking to the top of Gregory Bald in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Finally last month we made the 11 mile round trip hike. Here is a vlog from that outing.

Hey, excellent website. A great Iraq resource is Deaths in Iraq. It breaks all of the casualties down by age, race, branch of the military, country, etc.

As someone who's been involved in desktop video since 2000, I can say that we tend to think of our video footage as our children. But you have to get over that if you are to make great videos. You have to be absolutely ruthless in your cuts. It should be very rare to have a clip that goes on for more than four seconds; and if it does, the viewer should be stunned and breathless by what they are seeing. If you've got something to say, show no more than four seconds or so of you talking. Do the rest as voice over. Keep the walking and shooting shots to a bear minimum. Way to much jiggling. If you've got other people, be creative in your shots. Get ahead or behind them, get a solid rest and show them walking towards or away from the camera. Get on their flanks and show them walking into and out of the viewfinder. Always, always be on the lookout for cutaways. Many cutaways help you comply with the four second clip rule and it keeps the guessing on what next thing they might see.

Gee thanks for the suggestions with the previous comment! By the way the word "to" is misused in the incomplete sentance "Way to much jiggling", the word "too" would be appropriate.
