A Day at the Races

In General by John1 Comment

This video is a work in progress.  There’s nearly two hours of video to be edited down to a reasonable length for a movie.  Originally I planned to make a DVD but the problem with that was I wasn’t sure how long to make the movie – as short as 10 minutes or as long as 60 minutes, or where in between?  And then there was the problem of  distributing the DVD to whoever might be interested, and whether their DVD player could play my home-made DVDs.

Yesterday I got the idea of publishing it on this blog page, so I did a quick finish of the editing (the first two minutes were put together last year) just to put together this video to fit the length of the music.  I’ve spent a lot of time researching and it seems that I can’t embed a video player into a WordPress blog page.  So I’ve put the video on YouTube, and embedded a link to that.

As I said, this is only a work in progress.  If I produce the final video for YouTube, then that settles the length issue, as the maximum length allowed is 10 minutes.

I’d be interested to know what you think. Perhaps it’s best to think of the video as a pilot, to help me decide whether it’s worth spending the time to edit the whole two hours of original footage.

By the way, if you click on the video while it starts playing, it will go to full size at YouTube.
