Being in the first place a photographer, both filming and video editing are definitely something I never do. Since couple of months I've been thinking about changing this and telling myself that maybe it's high time to try it and learn something new.
A 2-weeks stay in Siberia appeared to be an excellent occasion to plunge into the world of cameras, stabilizers and all related topics. Trying to film as much as possible while, above all being focused on taking photos, turned out to be pretty challenging and the final results were not quite what I'd be hoping for. Still it sure was a great training in filming and in editing later on as well. The post-treatment part was particularly interesting to me, putting different sequences together and searching for good fits, made me feel like playing with some crazy, moving jigsaw puzzles.
Working on this lil' video footage during the recent Easter holidays was my very first attempt in this field. 2 hours of raw material resulted in 2 minutes video (that you can watch below), making me realize how much there is to learn and improve... Still I hope you'll enjoy it and please feel free to let me know what you think :)
