Sorry it’s been an entire week since you’ve heard from me! I’ve been ‘under the weather’ but am now getting back into the swing of things….
I’ve recently written about my Flip Ultra HD video camera and the audio limitations of same, so I thought I’d point out a creative ‘work-around’ that was shared with me by one of my Twitter buddies, Liam Killen over at Abbeyview Equine. A UK-based company, they do Web sites for equestrians, and recently won a BETA 2009 Innovation Award for their PagePlay concept – congrats!
The video clip is at the Abbeyview Equine YouTube channel, and was filmed at the 2010 Badminton Horse Trials using Liam’s own Flip video camera. Liam has dubbed in music over the long-distance footage or clips that might otherwise be subject to wind noise, and while there is a bit of ambient sound in the background on interview clips, it’s definitely within manageable limits.
If you come across other creative uses of Flip equestrian footage, please send ’em my way! And if you’d like to follow Liam on Twitter, it’s @AbbeyviewEquine.
