Last week I had the privilege/thrill to watch the Space Shuttle take off. Did the whole official viewing platform at the NASA Banana Creek Viewing Site.
I brought multiple HD video cameras too.
Was pretty sure I’d be attempting to impress with my handiwork in the Blog a week later.
But during the tour the day before, one NASA worker encouraged us to “don’t film anything, just enjoy it.” He pointed out that there were a few zillion cameras already pointing at the thing (some of them even in HD) and that they were probably going to get better film than I ever was.
And, he also pointed out … I came a few thousand miles to see something pretty cool – and I might not want to view that through a viewfinder – even in HD.
It was awesome.
Even better than the real thing.
Enjoy this guy. Here’s a link in case you don’t have the clip embedded.
That Bono might be onto something.
If you need to see something from the trip, here’s a quick test I did of the iMovie 09 “Smooth Clip” feature (from my Colligan YouTube.com Channel).
Have a great weekend all – and for your North Americans, don’t just film the BBQ.
