I'm not dead, yet!

Sorry about the lack of posting. I'll be rectifying that. I graduated this summer from RRCC with an AAS in Digital Media Journalism (woohoo!!!) and have been busy working on some web-based video training at work.

But it's fall, so I will be getting some fall foliage pictures up soon. In the meantime, how about some gratuitous costuming pics?

Final Cut: Mountain Garrison recruiting video

I'm done with my videography class, and my Mountain Garrison 501st recruiting video. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.



Next up: Pictures from the May the Fourth events at Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum.

RV'ing - Mormon Island SWA, Grand island, NE

We did a road trip this weekend, and I took this pic of our rig at the Mormon Island State Wildlife Area in Grand Island, Nebraska.

It was our first time taking our new Class C on the road. It did great, and I'm sure I'll be posting more about it in the future.

Video Interview: Sean Peck, Sculptor

I helped shoot and edit this video for my videography class. I did most of the B-roll footage, while classmate Carrie Carrigan shot the A-roll.

I still have a lot to learn at videography, and video editing, but I'm having fun with it.

I hope you all like it.

Fun at Clear Creek

One of the fun things about living on Clear Creek in Golden are all of the activities. This morning was cardboard boat races, and tonight we had a fireworks show, all thanks to the Colorado School of Mines. 

It was a lot of fun seeing what boats worked, what sank, and what just looked pretty, and what was put together at the last minute in a fit of drunken engineering madness.

Of course, half the fun was watching them make it through the rapids...

Video fun

This weekend is the Denver St. Patrick's Day parade in downtown Denver. It's always a blast marching in this parade. I'll be getting some great photos and videos of the parade this year. If you're in Denver, check it out on Saturday, March 16, kickoff is 10 AM.

Here is a quick look at past parades:

And as long as we are viewing videos, here is a quick clip of other trooping fun:

Mountain Garrison Recruiting Video - Rough Cut

I'm taking a videography class at Red Rocks Community College. This is my mid term proof-of-concept. It is a recruiting video for the Mountain Garrison 501st. It still needs a lot of work, some interviews and other video, but it's getting there.

I am open to constructive criticism or feedback. My plan for the final project is to include some interviews with the Garrison Commander, probably some trooper interviews of "why I joined the 501st" and more charity work, as well as a "how to join the 501st."

LMK what you think, and I hope you like it!
