    Default YAY! My video is ready!

    UPDATE: Since we're just a week out, here's my latest montage video:




    https://vimeo.com/75872503








    I did the Coachella/Vegas/Coachella thing and made a little celebratory video about it - I think it captures a lot of the spirit of the festival!



    ENJOY!

    I think it needs more coachella and less friends drinking in the campground. but that's just me.

    cool idea though.

    That's my friend Abby and Iris at 3:32 trying to save what was left of our canopies. We were at main and 110th street weekend 1. Nice work on the video by the way.

    I love the video. Your Coachella experience was SO different than mine - that's what makes Coachella what it is. There are so many options - so many experiences - so many opportunities for fun. I like Coachella more for the music rather than camping, but that's just me & Tom. Thanks for sharing.

    This is exactly what I was thinking while watching your video!

    Great video...looks like you had a fantastic time!

    Thanks everyone!

    Yeah - I'm definitely there for the music more than anything, but the camping and interacting with new people is really important to me as well. For me it kinda breaks down like this:
    50% Music
    25% Camping
    25% Coachella Vibe - the art, the support staff, the staging, the technical details of the audio - and of course the many opportunities for great images

    I happened to fall in with a fun little group on weekend one and decided to highlight that part of it because it was all so joyous. The cool part is that even though none of us knew each other prior to the fest, I think we will now all be friends for a long long time. That's the beauty of Coachella.

    Awesome video man! Makes me want to be there right now! What did you use to shoot it? I want to get a small video camera to document shows, festivals, trips, etc., that isn't super expensive.

    I used a Sony HX9V and really like it.

    Great zoom, great stabilizer and it shoots 1080p video and high rez stills.

    It's a little sluggish on start up, and the buttons are not well thought out - but it shoots awesome video.

    And it was only $300.

    You're welcome. And if you decide to go with this camera, here's a nice little tutorial/review on the video capabilities: http://vimeo.com/27479517

    Right on, thanks for the link. How is the audio quality when you're filming near a stage at a show? Can you still clearly hear the music or is it all muffled?

    We were your neighbors a few tents down for week 2. You made me a grilled cheese that was srsly the best tasting thing I ate that whole weekend. Good times. Hopefully I'll see you around next year.

    The audio is not good close to the stage. I was about five rows back for Kasabian and it was completely unusable.

    From about 25 rows back it was fine.

    So yeah - there's another drawback.

    HAH! I remember you guys! Wish I could have partied with you more but by then I was spent. The Chella/Vegas/Chella idea was one of the dumbest things I've ever tried to do.

    Glad you liked the "Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sammie"! Hey didn't you guys eat some of my pasta at like 3am on Monday morning as well?

    Overall, awesome video.

    I bought the Sony HX9V a month or 2 ago after reading someone post about it in a different thread and I love the camera. Might have been you that recommended it in the other thread. If so, thanks!
