rambles with a camera........................................... a video diary of 2011

When my Dslr went in for repair earlier this year I only had my camcorder.
I soon discovered that taking video clips during my walks and putting them together to make short films was quite enjoyable.

This is a compilation of my video clips covering the last twelve months.
It's less than twelve minutes long... I hope you enjoy viewing it.



 I am now seen wandering around my local patch with my Dslr in one hand and a lightweight tripod with my camcorder attached in the other.

Superb video Andrew, and well put together.

I think you've just made up my mind, it looks like my Christmas present to myself this year is definitely going to be a camcorder!...[;o)

Olá, amigo!
As imagens são maravilhosas...
Não entendo do assunto, mas se fosse possível ouvir os sons da natureza nessa filmagem, o canto dos pássaros, o barulho da água, do vento... seria o máximo.
Uma ótima semana!
Beijinhos.

This is a bakers dozen of a video. Have you found an editor? I find editing video a soul destroying task.
This is to a professional standard.

It could do with a voice over....Keith would speak if you don't want to. He's a star at speaking one could bleep the odd relapse........."F..K ME! There goes a Badger." Not hard to edit sound track it could in the twinkling of an eye become and there goes a Bleedin' Badger.
I really like his voice.
I am a believer in collaboration and am being serious.

Andrew, that was an excellent video.
As good as anything I've seen from the beeb on i-player.

Love Adrians comment lol
Yea, I have a few out takes, and some that didn't make it, because of my voice overs ;-)

Great job, Andrew! Nice editing. My camera shoots full HD video and I have yet to even try it. Maybe I should.

Great video, Andrew!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Andrew, what an awesome video. You chose a wonderful collection of scenes and birds. I really enjoyed it.

Debbie said...

awesome.....i LOVE this, it is just amazing. and the music, perfect!!

Martha Z said...

Great job, Andrew. Hubby handles the camcorder on our expeditions so I sent him your link. Perhaps this will inspire him to get to work on his editing.

Arija said...

Hats off to you Andrew, a fantastic nature video. Not only a a great shot of a robin and coal tit but that badger !!!! otters and all else. I am truly in awe.

Nature Rambles said...

Loved it! So beautifully done. The birds, the butterflies, the deer, the autumn colours...a treat to watch a video like that!

Hilke Breder said...

Wonderful video montage, Andrew! I enjoyed revisiting the badger, and watching the stag with his imposing rack, truly the master of his domain, also the river otter, and the coot with her chicks... Excellent!

NatureFootstep said...

great job Andrew! Loved it. I´ve been thinking of doing that, but still hasn´t.

Rambling Woods said...

...this is great and inspires me to do that as my camera will take short videos...great record...

Midmarsh John said...

Brilliant video Andrew. A lovely variety of UK wildlife smoothly put together. The neutral, soothing soundtrack fitted in well.

Springman said...

I am at a loss for words...okay, I'm back. You have raised the bar bar here Andrew. The BBC needs you. I was expecting to hear David Attenborough's voice chime in. It was a beautiful meditation. I don't know how you could have done better. Please think about entering it in the Banff Film Festival, it is that good!
Bravo!

Larry said...

Awesome job on the video Andrew! What a thrill to see a badger that well in the wild. I especially enjoyed the Coot chicks but my favorite stars of the video were the Otters. What a treat! Oh, I loved the music too, what is that sound track?

Pat said...

What a pleasure to just sit back and enjoy this video, Andrew! You've done an awesome job with the filming and editing. It's wonderful to watch these lovely animals as they go about their daily activities.

Andrew said...

Many thanks for all your kind comments.
The music is from Youtubes audio library. It's called Annie by the Sea by Jonn Serrie and was just under 12 minutes in length.
The video clip was edited to fit the music.
It took me ages lol.
Again many thanks your kind words.

Liz said...

Excellent Andrew. Great editing. Lovely to watch!
My camera takes full HD video and I have never tried it (still learning it's capabilities after having it for only 2 1/2 months!)

AndysLens said...

Magnificent video. Well done!

Dave said...

Beautiful work Andrew.
I would love to try the video one day.
