Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

Or videotaping yourself cleaning the bilge! Especially after you've had too many Sundowners and the whole world is jaggy at the fringes because your eyeballs have to revert to 30i.

But Drake's...

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

Come now UP. That's the easy way out. The attitude that is the father of mediocre.

Make them good (as Drake does). Then people will watch.

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

No worries. Again, it's not a knock at all on your videos. The storytelling is what makes them so consistently good. This was just a little technical nit-pick.

But, at the same time, you seem to...

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

You see the interlacing mostly in areas of high contrast and motion. So it's not bad by any means. I'm just a tech geek (like you I think) whose been around video a long time and notice little issues...

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

Drake - just catching up. Just watched "The Beach at Mount Sinai". Very well done dude. Just awesome story and music.

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

Some things on this video:

1) Totally get the "one small step for man" audio. It's amazing that we've been to the moon, absolutely amazing and something never to be forgotten. (And for all...

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

My favorite part is where you shut off the engine and sigh.

Isn't that quiet the absolute best part of being on a sailboat? It's "work done". It's relaxation. It's magic. Whether you're at anchor...

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

Another great, informative, entertaining, and realistic episode. I especially love how you show it as it is, how it was on the boat, and the decisions and difficulties along the way.

Cold beers...

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

Glad I could provide a little local background to your already excellent observations! No reason to offer me any official credit but I appreciate the thought. Thanks to you and Monique.

Very entertaining as usual. The homes including the one with the seaplane is part of an exclusive community calledu Malba, used to be the home to many organized crime figures. Not sure about now....

I encourage people to donate to Drake through the paypal button on his youtube site. These videos are worth the money.

Hard to believe these were shot a year ago. Thanks for taking us along.

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Great videos! Perhaps spend a bit of the editing time running the sound thru a filter or EQ to lessen the engine noise? A wind sock and directional mic couldn't hurt, either.
