Here is some more video of WA's South West. This was shot over Easter and the first week od the school holidays. The Stirling Ranges about an hour or so North of Albany and Esperance are featured in this video.

Still in production is Albany and Denmark, which I will post when finished.

Enjoy



Cheers

What can we say, but it is up to your usual perfect production.

Please keep them coming.


Cheers

That damn hermit crab hug on for a good fifteen minutes Stephen.
Richard was up the sandhills waiting in the car because he felt unsafe leaving the car (there was already evidence of a smashed car window up there.)
Jackson tried going down to the water and putting his hand in to see if the crab would let go...that didn't work.
We tried pulling and that made the crab pinch even harder!
Really we just had to wait, lol!
I was quite flustered as we were in a hurry to get going and it was only supposed to be a brief stop to see if there was anything worth filming on that little beach.
As it turned out the crab incident was pretty much it!
Bit of a worry really, seeing all the naked people on the beach in Broome.
You wouldn't want a hermit crab latching onto any of those "delicate bits".

Thanks Uncle. She definitely has a knack for doing this type of thing. My creativity extends to cooking a camp oven :)

We are heading back to NSW in July after spending 3 years here in Perth, and actually cant wait to get back to be able to film stuff on that side of the country.Places we have been to many many times that we can now revisit and capture.

I am sure also that if we get to the EO gathering in September there will also be much footage shot of that as well.

Cheers

Very nice production, we will be heading over that way in Sept. My wife produces dvds of our trips and she is interested to know which program do you use to edit and what the piece of music was in the back ground and what camera you use. We are currently using JVC Everio HD30 and Ulead video Studio 10

We are using a JVC GZ HD-7 camera for all of our filming and Sony Vegas Pro 8 for editing. Not sure what the piece of music is on this one, but I am sure when SWMBO awakes from her beauty sleep, she will be able to shed some light on that for you. SOme of her videos she uses various pieces from other people., On quite a few it is her own music, or music from other songwriters she collaborates with on the net.

We have rendered stuff to DVD, but it just doesnt look as good as you loose the high definition viewing once that is done. I am still debating the purchase of a blu ray burner for the PC and a player for the lounge so that we can watch it all in full high definition. This camera is the only reason we have an LCD TV. I was actually quite happy with our old no name rounded screen CRT, but after buying the camera we went into JB HiFi with a DVD to see what it would look like on a large screen LCD. Needless to say we brought home with us the same day a 46" Samsung......LOL. Damn lucky I got a good tax return last year :)

Cheers

Richard

Hi there.
The track I've used is called "Birth of a delta" from the CD "Dawn of time".
No idea who the artist is (Would be good to credit them) as this is from a boxed CD set of ambient music that Richard bought me ages ago.
I SHOULD be writing more of my own but there's always so much video waiting to be edited :) and my music muse has kinda gone on holidays at the moment!

I'd love to see some of other peoples holiday/travel video's so let us know if your wife uploads them anywhere online.

BTW for anyone interested, I just discovered that youtube now enables you to upload in High Definition!
I watched a friends HD video today and it was GREAT!
No music/image out of sync problems with the HD clip I watched (I always found that to be a HUGE problem with youtube before) but apparently, for some reason this is still a bit of a problem there with standard definition video.

Another excellent production Tracy, and thanks Richard for posting it.Esperance is such a fantastic spot and in my mind one of the best if not the best beach areas in Oz. Good to see the town jetty seal is still pinching a feed. Looked a tad cold though while you where there?

Make sure you give back more than you take

We were SURE we were going to get rain more than once on this trip Duncan.
It was overcast for a lot of it, which was a bit of a shame because the turquoise water doesn't look QUITE so vividly turquoise as it would on real sunny days, but none the less it was still a really magic spot there in Esperance.
I was quite surprised....it was nowhere near as "touristy" as I expected.

Sammy the seal now has a load of warning signs posted on his behalf.
Apparently he bit an eight year old girl on the leg and tried to drag her into the water.
Pretty scary, but I'm glad people had the sense to not do anything rash - like get rid of him or whatever.
Wild animals are just that...wild, and they always need a respectful distance.
We were pretty chuffed to be able to watch him under the jetty there.
