At a dinner party last weekend the discussion turned to SlowTV (big surprise). After a little back and forth our friend Laurie said waterfalls might be interesting. Given all the time your editor has spent wandering the Sierra it was easy to agree.
What wasn’t as easy was the selection. Feedback from previous posts about the length of the videos was clear. Posts are a sampling and as such they should be brief. Between two and three minutes. The result is the quick presentation of a slow thing. A little tricky that.
Unable to decide which clip to use for two minutes the decision was made to go with multiple clips for shorter periods. Possibly not the most satisfactory solution. But deadlines care nothing for satisfaction and the learning curve rewards and punishes to it’s own rhythm.
On offer this week “Laurie’s Falls”, clips of waterfalls and rapids served up in a two minute and fifteen second package. As always your comments are invited, the critical as well as the polite. We hope you enjoy this view of the world through our eyes.
In the lower right hand corner of the You Tube box there is a number. If you click on it you will see some other numbers. A higher one means a cleaner picture. Also a larger (more dense) picture. If it plays in a halting fashion you may want to reset the number lower.
