Re: I just made a video on sailing in the British Virgin Islands HD

Patrick, welcome to Sailnet. Nice work. I too have a D800 (e), since May,but I have not had a chance to play with video yet. May be I should expand my horizon.

We got our sails up several times in the video, although with a crew of just 2 in low season we probably didn't raise sails as often as others might. But to me, sailing is more about just moving or raising sails, it's that whole experience of wind and seas. It's perhaps a lot of different things to a lot of people
Fair enough. Could you please elaborate and explain all the aspects of Blue Eden? I'm not normally so suspicious of a new poster.

Re: I just made a video on sailing in the British Virgin Islands HD

Well, I'm stuck in Europe with cold weather outside and a sniffling cough from a cold and miss my boat in the BVI. I don't have sound on this PC but watched the video twice in a row and could pretty much identify every scene - including the underwater ones!

Wonderful job and now I'm homesick...

Congrats that's a very nice movie. As others have said it is not a sailing movie. It is not only your boat it is also the other boats that are always on anchor.

Don't take me wrong I really liked the movie and I hope in your next one there will be plenty of sailboats sailing. That's what guys like here. I am waiting for that one

Regards

Paulo

Re: I just made a video on sailing in the British Virgin Islands HD

Very well done. A lot of moving camera shots. What did you use to control camera shake? What editing software did you use? Some have said the video does not show enough sailing and I would have liked to have seen a little more but to me the video shows aspects of what I envisage cruising life to be. A life I endeavour to live in the future.

He said it better than I did. I would really like to see that equipment and your skills really depict the essence of sailing. You hear it often here; "sailing is not about the destination, it is the getting there." So take us along.

Re: I just made a video on sailing in the British Virgin Islands HD

What's that they say, about the percentage of time cruising boats spend at anchor or moored? Maybe it's a cruising video, then.

Have any of you actually watched a Moorings ad video? Doesn't look anything like this.

As somebody who sails and dreams of cruising, this video captures the essence of whatever the hell it is I'm looking forward to.
