4th of July Time-lapse

Monday, July 5th, 2010

Here’s my first attempt at a time-lapse video.  It’s of the fireworks display at the 2010 Foster City, CA 4th of July celebrations. Shot on a Flip Mino HD from the 8th floor of the Parkside Towers building. There’s 20 minutes of footage speed up to 4x normal speed to create a 5 minute video. The video was edited using the open source video editor OpenShot. The song is titled The Storm Begins by Jennifer Haines and adds a nice effect to the video. Overall I’m quite happy with how it turned out, I hope you enjoy.

Olympic Torch Ceremony Halifax

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

The Olympic torch in Halifax on November 18, 2009. A couple of my friends and I were there for the passing of the torch in front of Dalhousie University Sexton Campus Gym. Nova Scotia native NHL star Sydney Crosby carried the torch & passed it on to Sarah Conrad; Halifax Olympian snowboarder who ran it into downtown Halifax and lit a cauldron in front of Halifax City Hall.

Someone stopped me for a pic while I carried the torch through the Vancouver mountains (jk)

Over 20,000 people gathered into downtown Halifax for the ceremonies. The ceremonies was put on (and heavily sponsored by) RBC and Coke. Performances included a local artist spin painting, musical performance and dance, DJ Skratch Bastid, break dancers, local snowboarders on a man made hill beside the main stage.

Just picking up our torch Crosby dropped it off to us.

After the torch ceremony Classified performed the hip-hop version of Canada’s national anthem “O Canada” (check out the official music video here). My friends Mike and Liz got a change try out an olympic bobsled at the end, lol. Check out my video of clips from the event below.
