Yes, I FINALLY had a chance last night to edit together the ridiculous amount of footage we had from multiple surf trips to Tofino this summer. Sadly, I didn’t have much footage from the spring and we haven’t started our fall and winter surf trips yet, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to combine all the summer footage into one nice tiny package with a bow on top.

So here we go, HD video footage featuring…

  • Several surf trips to Tofino this summer with friends, and by ourselves
  • Underwater housing footage (in-ocean shots)
  • Long lens surf shots
  • GoPro camera footage (camera attached to the board)
  • Us reeling in crabs off the dock and cooking them
  • A few different timelapses
  • Us doing stupid stuff
  • Allan, J, Venus, Trev, and myself
  • Fantastic music from the Planet Smashers (thanks guys, how could I NOT use your song) … :)

HD Video Roundup: Tofino Surf Summer 2009

Click the video above to view. Short vid, about 3 minutes. Safe for work.

It’s about 30 hours of footage rolled into one tiny video. You’ll also notice the underwater housing fogs up… yeah, we accidentally tore the new housing and tried to patch it up with tent glue. Then we used it in the ocean anyway. Well, it leaked. Haha. And uh, I kind of broke my Nikon. Soooooo, now I have to get it fixed.

So stupidity aside, let me know what you think! :)

Thanks for watching!

So I finally got a chance to put together the time lapse photography movies I’ve been talking about for a while now.

12 hours and about 2,000 photos crammed into just 2 minutes. Pretty nifty! I think it turned out alright for my first go at true timelapse. I have some ideas on what I want to do next… I think the execution will be better next time.

This time lapse photography was done for our move in February 2009 from our old apartment into the new one. Also features the rather epic set up of the fish tank in our living room. Takes quite a lot of work to put the fishies back in their watery home! Check it out below:

Setup: Nikon D90 on a tripod, hooked up to laptop using Nikon’s Camera Control Pro 2 software, time lapse photos/frames compiled using Quicktime Pro and Adobe Premiere CS4. Note to self next time… turn off auto exposure.

Bonus points to anyone who knows which soundtrack this song is from ;)
