OneMinute – London

Starting today I’ll create and upload a series of videos with a duration of 1 minute each. Not coincidentally I named it after it’s duration. Hence the OneMinute series.

But why create and upload one minute long videos? That’s simple. People who follow me on Twitter know I was in London last week. Over there I collected about two hours of raw video. But… I don’t have time to spend hours and hours on creating a big long video. And this is not the first time I don’t have time to edit. In the past, I collected many hours of video but didn’t use it so far. It’s a waste of video (and valuable gigabytes on my hard disk drive)! That’s why I decided to create these short OneMinute videos.

London

In this OneMinute you’ll experience London in just one minute. The changing of the guards, Trafalgar Square, British Museum, Downing Street 10, Millennium Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral, river Thames, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. Yep, you’ll experience it all in just one minute!

For people interested. I used a Panasonic HDC-SD60 camera with no tripod. So it’s all filmed hand-held. This time I mostly used standard settings on my camera. Today, I edited this OneMinute video as fast (and the easiest way) as possible. So no Final Cut, Avid or Adobe Premiere. No, I simply used iMovie.

Please enjoy this OneMinute video and I will upload more soon!

Summer school in the United Kingdom

In 2006 I did a summer school in the United Kingdom. I studied British Language and culture at the University of Bedfordshire. As part of our program we visited Windsor Castle (the summer residence of the Queen), Stratford Upon Avon (where Shakespeare lived) and Oxford (yep, the famous university). Also I visited London several times. Long story short, I had a great time in the UK.
