The Joy of Travel

In class today we talked about possible creative projects. The professor expressed some skepticism about the suitability of video as a medium.

I think I understand the concern. Most amateur video is uninspired.

Whether this rises above the muck is something the viewer can decide.

Watch the video, then read the material below.

This was an exercise in using the most basic production tools -- a Fuji point-and-shoot ($90); voice track on an Olympus DS-40 audio recorder ($99) mixed with the music in Audacity (Freeware); video edited with Adobe Premier Elements ($80). Quotations from Saint Augustine, Robert Louis Stevenson, Marcel Proust, G. K. Chesterton, George Moore, Martin Buber.
