Here are a couple of recent videos from Tracy. The first is the Gunbarrell Highway, taken on our trip mid last year, and the second is a look at the lighter side of camp oven cooking :)





Enjoy.......

Cheers

Thaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnk yooouuuuuuu Tracy!

The scene at 1 minute 20 seconds in the gunbarrel video is a knockout. As is the sunset in the camp oven video.

Thanks again.

Very professional!!
The colours have been captured very well, what type of camera were you using?
Well done

Hi Mark

We are using a JVC Everio HD-7 High Definition camera. It actually got really bad reviews but at the time, and maybe even now it was the only "pro-sumer" camera that had a focus ring and the ability to go into full manual control without going through 4 million menus on the LCD.

Cheers

I am fairly new here, but have heard that Tracy is a legend,,,, now I know why. Brilliant photography, production and editing! I took particular interest in your camp oven roast..... I use a slightly different method for the actual cooking, but the preparation etc is exactly the same, lol. Great stuff, really loved the video of The Gunbarrel, thanks for sharing, Dave

Ahhh the hunter-gatherer lifestyle. All I've got to do now is find someone who'll do the gathering ....and carry the beers ! :-)

Great stuff Tracy (and Richard). Love your work. You have inspired me to utilise Kevin 07's cash and a lot of credit card points to buy myself a decent video camera. Later this week I'm picking up my new Sony HD hybrid (with GPS so if I do get lost, at least I'll know where I'm Karcking it from thirst!). You and Alan (Equinox) Mc C are adding a whole new dimension to the EO site.


Enjoying your work greatly.

Cheers Mick.

P.S. If I send you my footage, could you do something with it for me....PLEEEAAASSSSSEEE.

Excellent editing Tracy. Didn't see many beers but the bottles of red looked inviting. Never seen anybody set fire to their oven to pre heat it before. LOL

The footage of the GB looked awesome.

Keep them coming.

One thing though how can I watch the video other than by streaming video as my download (ASL) speed cannot keep up and the video stops and starts all the time?

Dunc

If you go to Tracy's vimeo site, which is here, and then click on the video that you want, scroll down the page and look on the right hand side, you can in fact download some of them.

Both of these are available for download. The Gunbarrel video is 158 meg and the camp oven cooking is 135 meg. They are in wmv format so should play fine on your pc with media player.

Cheers

Dunc:
If you want to watch it, start the video, then put it onto pause, go play a game of cdomputer solitaire for a while until it has loaded, then you can watch it without interruptions. I only use 256k download speed and find that works well for me.

Terrific videos though!!!

Thanks again everyone for watching and commenting.
I'm so pleased to know that what we have filmed is of some interest to other people.
I know you all KNOW the beauty that is to be found "out there".
I must confess that my impression of the Gunbarrel was somewhat tainted because I was really out of sorts at that time.
Looking back on it I can see the beauty, but at the time it felt so very desolate and was an uncomfortable ride I can tell you!
I'm a sucker for the wildlife though so the sight of all those camels out there perked me up a bit!
At times I wondered who was observing WHO :)

At our first camp site it was amazing because as soon as the sun slipped away almost instantly, and all at one time, hundreds of crickets began chirping.
I commented at the time "Who turned on the night time ambience recording?"
That was the night we saw a light heading towards us through the dark.
It was coming, closer and closer, bigger and bigger....too low to be a plane, and only one single light - no noise....and then....poof! It disappeared!
We all saw it....so it wasn't me drugged up on the contents of our medicine kit, lol!

Tracy I had a similar experience at Pt Lilian in the Gt Vic Desert last year. The light was pretty much as you explained. Thought well if it's a UFO I won't bother it if it don't bother me. LOL

Weird hey?
No logical explanations.

Awesome videos. They are all excellent but I particularly like the Bungle Bungles as I will be there for the first time in a couple of months, on the ground at least. I flew over them 25 years ago but the view from down on the ground does them so much more justice.

I loved the haunting music too. very appropriate for these clips. Thanks heaps guys

It certainly was real Bob.
We've threatened to buy Richard his own swag.
It would probably inflate and take off in the night though!
