D7000 Video: Chookens vs. Cat

This was the first day our chooks went exploring outside their pen (another story about it here) and you can see how one of our cats handled it. Our other cat was nowhere to be seen.

I made this video yesterday using my Nikon D7000 and Nikkor 28-300mm VR lens. You can change the quality of the video on the bottom right side of the video screen where it says 360p.

Music: “Rain” by Alison Krauss and Union Station.

Youtubing Laughs

Last night we had dinner with friends and laughed over some fantastic YouTube clips. Thought I would share a few of my favs.

This one would have to be my favourite: aboriginal moves to the Greek Zorba.

For the iPad lovers!  How in the world did he do this?!?

This following one is sweet in a weird kind of way.

Here’s something sweet…and funny. Such a typical boy! It starts at such a young age.

Perhaps the next president? For if you ever need to learn how to ride a bike.

And lets end this post while rocking out to this –

Videoing on my DSLR

I had a bit of a muck around trying to learn the ropes with my D90 DSLR using the video setting the other day. We have an older JVC video camera at home, and at work we have used Flip Cams, but my camera seems to be better quality.  It also has something to do with the lens you use (so I have been told).

I had my first go the other day filming our cat Panini.  It is a little tricky to manually focus on the object you are trying to film (moving cat) and work out the white balance and all that other camera lingo I am s.l.o.w.l.y learning. It is actually a pretty boring video and it took nearly 3 hours to upload to YouTube….

Yesterday I also created a movie of some students sharing what they love about our school and what their dream teacher is like.  I am presenting this movie during my staff devotion tomorrow morning so the teachers can feel a bit inspired and also see their job from the perspective of the students.  I wish I could post the video on here, but gotta watch the privacy and kids thing.

This weekend I am away with a girlfriend so will have more opportunities to practice!  I’m sure she won’t mind 🙂

Sunshine Coast Flood Video

We went for a drive yesterday to check out what the floods were up to (and to return a DVD).  Quite a few roads were still blocked off by water and quite damaged, and some homes are flooded.  Of course, this video was taken before the major downfall from last night and more rain and flooding today.

Here is some footage taken from a few different places on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia.  Thankfully things are not as bad here as the flooding north and west, and now south of us.  The images on the news are devastating.

Geddan! Huh?

Geddan is Engrish for “get down” and it is a new dance craze – a mix between video game nostalgia, dance style and a music video.

It all started when Nintendo 64 gamers would be in the middle of playing the Golden Eye (James Bond) game and the characters would spastically spin or dance in one spot. The cause of this was an improperly inserted game cartridge.  These would be glitches that would occur during the game – very frustrating but funny as.  People would start purposefully “tilting” the cartridges and then grab the graphics to put with music, creating a new craze.  Then, of course, people took THAT to the next level and started filming themselves to make their own spasmodic dance clip.  You can find them all over YouTube.

To make a Geddan you need three basic steps:

  1. strike a pose
  2. pelvic thrusts
  3. shaking your hips

Here is a clip explaining where Geddan came from and how to make one.

We decided to make our own spin of the Geddan Dance by making a Geddan Dinner!  I think it will really catch on…
