Forgotten Animals

Nalts latest post on 'Will Video for Food'
is not the self promotion he has been up to lately. Not that I think there's a problem with self promoting. If you can't promote yourself on the Internet, you're likely to be talking to yourself mostly. Anyway, he's highlighting a cause that I feel is very worthwhile. Take a look at this video:Thumb_default
In my experience dogs are generous and loving beings and I applaud video's being made to promote this work and any other problems we have in our world that a bit of attention, awareness and cash could address.

300 Clips on Revver

I have just uploaded my 300th clip on Revver. It is a video I took of Ella, our wonderful whippet who died earlier this year. I still miss her. The great thing about this clip for me personally is the memory of her and one of the funny little things she used to do. She would walk into the water and just stand there. We would laugh. She had an amazing personality and would do random and spontaneous things that always allowed us to know she had preferences and made her own choices about her behaviour.

Most of my clips on revver are just little glimpses of things I liked to look at as I move through my life. They are not rehearsed or staged, but just random little shots of the everyday that I find enchanting. I take them for myself. I am happy that others enjoy them too. I have made over $800 US dollars on Revver. I opened my account in March this year after reading about Revver on Robin Goods site as I have previously mentioned. It has been a fun little interest and I feel satisfied with this collection I have shared.
I aspire to creating stories and making real videos. I am a full time school teacher and I don't have time to play as much as I would like. I love teaching too. I intend to make videos to entertain and to educate or ideally inspire, but it will have to wait. For now I am just learning about all the little bits I need to do that. I am enjoying the journey though.

Robin Good

I would like to acknowledge that Robin Good's blog Master New Media was the place where I first heard about Revver. I read an article there about it and thought I would give it a try.
I have just read an article there:
Internet Video - How To Monetize Your Independent Video Content
His site is worth reading at least once a week if you want to participate in any form of Internet publishing. I like his design as well, making it easy to read and interesting to look at.
Thanks Robin Good, you are good.

This is a neat time lapse composition. Enjoy!

Revver, Fame and I!!

When I read this post this morning, "Fame TV live this week" on the Revver Blog, I had no clue it would apply to any of the little clips I've submitted! But alas, this afternoon I have received an email to say that possibly, On The Beach Thumb_default and learner driver No.6 Thumb_default
"have been selected for possible inclusion in our first broadcast TV initiative! "

So I am pretty stoked about that! Fame TV hey! Well it all remains to be seen.

Loch Sport Beach

A beach about 10kms out of Loch Sport, unspoiled, isolated and with no one around. Plenty of shells and sponges. A perfect beach.
