Streaming the Ordinary: Small Pond Video
Just to indict myself and vindicate the folks at Vimeo, and since the link was not interesting enough to click, pig-in-a-poke,Â I put up the little garden clip I couldn’t get to work yesterday,.
I’d not tweaked a permission in settings to allow embedding. Vimeo is much more customizable than YouTube. This is both a strength and (for non-tweakers) a liability. As a baby video-photog, I’m creeping into it,Â especially with regard to adding more expenses to this aspect of digital story-telling.
I could purchase Final Cut Pro. I could subscribe to VideoBlocks for sound and visual clips. I could subscribe to Vimeo Plus for storage and access. That’s starting to add up some expense,Â especially for a hobbyist not likely to ever get any return for investment–not monetary, anyway.
But I’m ahead of where I was a month ago. FloydFest should be a challenge–to film an hour in several dozen blocks to get a three minute edited movie.
Late June garden. Things come in so slowly in our cool valley, and the shorter days of sunlight between ridges makes gardening a challenge. This year, the heirloom “goose beans” and black beans climbing up the tomato cages hold promise. We’ll see.
