The new Arras Tunnel opened in Wellington over the weekend. It’s only a short underpass that will have a park built over the top of it. Having travelled through Arras and seen many of the World War I cemeteries in that area of France, I felt compelled to make a video about the tunnel and what it means to me.
After making my review video of Instagram’s Hyperlapse app, I’ve been enjoying taking Hyperlapse videos. I made a short video of a few hyperlapse clips. It’s only 30 seconds long. Have a look.
About 18 months ago I was given an Aeropress coffee maker for a Christmas present. It’s a nice simple device that basically forces coffee through a paper filter. Since then, the coffee plunger/cafetière/french press has stayed in the cupboard and all coffee has been made with the Aeropress.
By way of endorsement, it’s made by Aerobie, the company that makes frisbee-type products. Well-known for plastic stuff. Not so well-known for coffee. But it is an easy way to make a coffee.
Anyway, I had an idea a couple of days ago to make a video of my coffee-making routine. I’m pretty happy with the result. It’s only the second video I’ve made and too a fair bit of editing. I’m reasonably happy with the result although do bang things around quite a bit while making the coffee.
It’s only a short video and a lot happens so have a look. It’s a minute of your life that you’ll never get back:
It was an interesting experience creating this. I used three cameras to create the video: my two Olympus digital SLR’s and my iPhone camera. The only thing I really missed would’ve been an extra tripod, although some of the hand-held iPhone footage was pretty awful: it’s hard it do something with one hand while trying to hold a phone/camera steady.
A few months ago, I took a trip out to a wind farm near Wellington. There is a collection of about 60 wind turbines that have been built over the past few years. They are pretty large and somewhat mesmerising to watch.
