My Siberian Husky posts a response video to all of the Kony 2012 videos. Konny is very talkative and opinionated, so it’s only natural that he’d have an opinion on the Kony 2012 thing.
I filmed this video with my phone (Samsung Infuse 4G) and added the titles with Adobe Premiere CS 5.5.
Just a quick video of my dogs wrestling. They do this just about every day – I guess it’s good exercise, because they’re both in great shape.
(Just to be clear, dog wrestling is entirely different than dog fighting, which is one of the worst things ever.)
"Psh... I'm the REAL Winter Soldier!"
Since I’ve been contributing at AComicbookBlog.com, I’ve been reviewing crap – at least for the most part. But now, I get to talk about something awesome: Winter Soldier! Ed Brubaker’s one of my favorite writers, so the fact that he’s got another book out and I get to review it is awesome.
And speaking of my favorite writers, I’ve also taken over the duties of reviewing X-Factor, written by Peter David, who I had the good fortune to interview last year.
I shot this quick video with my Samsung Infuse 4G. This time, I uploaded the video directly to YouTube from my phone as opposed to the last video I shot with this my phone’s video camera, which I imported to my PC and then into Adobe Premier and finally uploaded to YouTube. I tend to not favor these sort of pointless videos, but it’s short in length and it’s fun to watch Conny run around like a crazy man – not to mention that this was a test I was interested to see the results of and will settle the question of whether or not I need editing software on my phone.
(Wow – video editing software on a cell phone. Things have changed since Zack Morris’ cell phone on Saved by the Bell!)
Now that I’m embarking onto a foray into digital video (I started in VHS-C, then moved to Digital 8… which was probably a step in the wrong direction), I’m experimenting with capturing a Digital Video Still Image from a video. The technique I’ve used here is about as low tech as it gets – I simply did a screen grab from the YouTube video I posted of my Golden Retriever and Siberian Husky playing in the snow. I dropped that in Microsoft Paint (again, extremely low tech), cropped out what I didn’t want and boom, there you go.

Welcome to my first video offering, Dogs in the Snow. Here, you’ll get a simple glimpse of my Golden Retriever and Siberian Husky playing in the snow. Not much going on here – just a few tiny edits.
I shot this on my new Canon VIXIA HF M300. It’s incredible how tiny this camera is and the results speak for themselves. It has pretty much everything I could want in a camcorder – it’s light weight, mic input, video light, camera flash, headphone jack – it’s pretty sweet. This was a generous gift from my sister and brother in law. I edited this with the software it came with (if you can call that editing), and it’s clear that the PIXELA Image Mixer software is just not up to the challenge – if you’re used to Final Cut or Adobe Premier, the primitive controls and pathetic playback abilities will make you nuts in moments. I don’t know what I expected for free software that came with the camera, but it sucks.
This is also my first upload to YouTube – it was pretty easy. However, if you can edit the description after you post the video, I haven’t figured out how. Anyway, there’s more to videos to come!
