To answer Jarmor's question involving a full POV. I made two, well actually three, Everest videos. One was a full POV of the ride which can be found here:

The original music video can be found here:

The one I entered into the contest is a different edit of the music video, which I think is a better version.

15. Phil Hart’s Carowinds. Extra super duper bonus points for the concept! Did you have the old video first before you got the park footage, or did you have the park footage and make it fit so well to what the announcer was saying. Great job of remixing and editing the soundtrack to the techno beat and stretching it out the whole video long. Besides all that, it’s also a fun video. Definitely top 5.


MrMorgan: (and everyone else)

Thanks!
To answer the many questions about this video... Yes, I had the old video first. I found it on a downloading spree from archive.org's video vault. I did not download it for any particular purpose, I just downloaded a bunch of old stuff to watch, hey it's free! You can find the video here. http://www.archive.org/details/your_movie_camera
The video is very long, and is a real instructional video of how to use your movie camera. Made in 1948, you can imagine the technology back then. The original video is just over 10 minutes long covering all sorts of topics, many more than what you see in my resulting video. The video is funny in and of itself, I recommend anyone to watch it just for a laugh.

Then, many months later, ACE's C3 event at Carowinds occured. I could not go for financial reasons, so the other members of the whootah.com clan went. Alan filmed a tapes worth of footage, handed it to me and said go at it. I looked at the tape over and over and tried to pick out some good scenes to put into a video. However, as I watched the tape, I realized there really wasnt that many good scenes to make even 30 seconds of a video. I was at a standstill.

Then I thought of this old video I had downloaded a long time ago. I didnt tell anyone of my plans, espeically Alan. I was afraid he would be mad or embarrased, but I didnt care!! Whootah love. On I went and threw it up there and told him to check it out and he (and a lot of others) got a big kick out of it. (I know, I know.. some people dont like it. I respect that and admit this video isnt for everyone.)

Secret confesion - the video on TPR entered into the contest is the uncensored version. That is by mistake! I rendered 2 copies, one straight render actually forgetting to put the beeps in there, and then one render again with the certian words bleeped out. Well I ended up never rendering an AVI for the censored version, I only rendered the smaller wmv to go on the website. So the AVI I had was still the uncensored one, and that's what I sent to Robb. I realized this a week after the video was posted into the finals, and by then I decided it was too late to change, everyone who was going to download it had already downloaded it, and I didnt want to have 2 different versions floating around in cyberspace. If you want the censored version, get it from http://whootah.com/archives/86

Anyway, hope that answered everyone's questions. It was a stab at Alan to be better camera man, and a stab to the rest of this video world that all your videos dont have to feature silly little coasters , points of view, and pretending like your on that jackass show.

Thanks for your support, and good luck to all the video entries!
