My first attempt at film...
This is just an experiment, my first attempt to shoot and edit film. It was taken on what was meant to be a two day trip down the River Tweed (in the Scottish Borders) 30th and 31st December. The more interesting stretches of river are below this section. The section on this film is very flat. I camped on an island on the river at the end of day one. There were lots of partially eaten dead fish strewn around (Otters are good hunters but wasteful eaters). Overnight it rained and rained, and the river rose and rose. The wind was so strong on the second day that I soon quit the river and just went home. The battery on my camera had run out, anyway.
As far as shooting & editing film goes, I clearly have a lot to learn.
Playing this back, I don't think it was worth 4 minutes and 28 seconds of screen time - there's not nearly enough variety. That's one lesson learned.
I'll be looking to improve on my next effort, so comments and suggestions are welcomed.
Happy New Year.
