Here it is guys, ten whole minutes of video goodness!

Just a few words to everyone involved with this. Firstly a huge thank you to Ed and Aragorn for sharing your techniques and ideas. Secondly, a huge thank you to everyone else for putting up with me shoving a camera in your face while you are going through the sometimes very vulnerable stages of learning.

It's been a massive project for me. I got ten hours of footage, and have watched every minute of it over and over, trying to find the best clips that capture the mood, environment, and the people. I know some of you got more 'air time' than others, and this was down to two main things. Firstly, my fault :oops: not enough experience with my new lens meant lots of otherwise good shots just weren't in proper focus, and the bad lighting downstairs meant most of the footage captured there was really grainy. Secondly, trying to make sure that everyone who was in shot at the time wasn't doing anything they wouldn't want aired, quite tough when there were sixteen of us :D

Turn the volume up and enjoy.

Thanks :D

I forgot to say there will be a few more videos coming out from the Berlin footage, there was quite a lot of good stuff I haven't used yet.

I'd really like every decent shot to be seen, but I also want to have some time off from this project so you might have to wait until summer. Or xmas.

:D

This was so amazing. I loved every minute of it. I cant wait to see what the future brings. I know eds videos have already been giving me a lot of inspiration and this just amplified everything. This was not only your best editing Elsie but also some of the nicest CJing I have ever seen you do. Everyone was fantastic.

Bravo!
