Trips and Videos

In a couple weeks, we’ll be in Taiwan.

I’ve upgraded (or downgraded, depending on how you look at it) all our travel video gear. This year, in addition to digital cameras and phones that can record video, we’ll be carrying two different mini-HD cameras. Chu-Wan has a “Flip MinoHD Camcorder, 60 Minutes (Black)” (Flip Video) and I have a “Kodak Zi8 Pocket Video Camera (Aqua)” (Eastman Kodak Company). So far, I’m particularly happy with the Zi8 because it uses SD cards, has a replaceable battery and a microphone jack. These small cameras really have a problem with camera shake because they’re so light your hand just naturally moves them around a lot.

I’ve upgraded my Vimeo account to handle all HD videos and I’ve setup a dedicated channel just for videos from this trip. You can subscribe to the Lone Locust Taiwan 2010 Channel right here.

Don’t expect greatness, but do expect some video from Taiwan…

Fusion Patrol on Vimeo

I’m experimenting a bit with Vimeo instead of YouTube. So far, quality on Vimeo looks much better.

This is the first in a probably endless series of videos put together from years of all the junk we shot for Fusion Patrol.

Alternate Fusion Patrol Titles (1995, Unused) from Eugene Glover on Vimeo.

Originally shot in 1995, this is one of several attempts to revamp the opening titles for Fusion Patrol.

This footage was deemed unusable, largely because of the awful quality of the performances and pacing, and was never edited together.

Subsequent improvements in video editing software availability made it possible to digitally trick this into something… meh… but much better than possible using the old, finicky analog linear editor we had at the time.
