Ever since Hans showed me the way with his 5×5 of Sibley, I’ve been mildly obsessed with this format. It’s so quick to put together and forces to you to think about what’s really necessary to tell the story. That said, I think I failed in my recent attempt to tell a *good* story, but it was really fun to shoot and even more fun to ride:
Video was shot just a 10 minute ride from our house in Henderson, NV on/around Anthem East Trail (PDF). I’m spending all my rides (all 3 of them) exploring this area as it’s so close to our house.
Video is 1080/30P and shot on my “Faux Pro” (ya know, instead of a Go Pro), my new Galaxy S3 in an OtterBox. I never would have though of shooting first person cycling videos, but the Otter clipped so nicely on my camel back strap!
What to do on a sunny weekend? Why, hose down your local spider web, line up hard drives and take videos and photos of them all, of course! It is pretty insane just how fast that hard drive head moves. Check out the video below.

Now on to the tasty Vodka. This is slight variation on the standard Cosmo:
1 part Imperia vodka
1 part Cointreau
1 part cranberry cocktail

Hey there! A friend asked if Vimeo, who were then thinking of going with for plip.com videos, supported our camera’sAVHCD Light format. I’m happy to report, it does! Here’s to quick test clips I shot. Noteworthy is that Vimeo Plus, though a bit pricey, has excellent privacy settings which was a huge selling point to me.
