Thai Cave rescue - a mashup tribute
Everone in my country is on about "football coming home", but I've been more concerned about a dozen teenage footballers coming home. I dived a fair bit, so I found myself very caught up in the rescue operation to save the kids trapped in Tham Luang caves in Thailand. I'm overwhelmed by the bravery and resilience of everyone involved. Great to see the entire world come together to save these kids. Please pray they ALL make it. I don't have rights for ANY of the material which is just any news footage I could grab and the song by Vance Joy, I don't have any permissions, but I am not monetizing it, I just wanted to share this as a tribute and perhaps encourage more people to pray that the rains will hold off and the rescuers will manage to get them all out (so far 8 are free) An amazing effort by all concerned, against all odds.

Chief Seattle
Please watch the video first, then read this as an explanation. (click "more") I wanted to put some of my photos together as an Audio Visual presentation for my Camera Club, and initially used some nice relaxing music, but was searching through my collection of MP3's and wondered if this sound track of Chief Seattle might kind of work. The first thing that occurred to me was the obvious opportunity to try to match the images to the words which meant the pace of showing the images was rather fast in some instances. I would have preferred to linger on some shots to let the eye take it in, but obviously it was driven by the pace of the narrative. To some extent I feel it also means that getting away from an instrumental music track might cause the viewer to have their attention slightly diverted from just enjoying the photography, so then it had a different kind of impact because of the 'message' of the speech. However, I do love nature so I rather sympathise with the message and decided to go with it. There are several versions of this supposed monologue by Chief Seattle as you will find with minimal research. I took this one as the basis for an Audio Visual presentation for Kinross Camera Club. All photos are my own from around my home in Scotland. I do not have rights over the soundtrack. I had first seen this as a video where the same soundtrack (or similar) was accompanied by stills and video depicting scenes of pollution (of Rivers, etc.) and road kills (of animals) and it was a jarring reminder of man's abuse of the environment. I don't take many negative photographic subjects, preferring to keep my vision deliberately "blinkered" to focus on the beautiful things I see around me, but recently I visited what should have been a nice beauty spot and found an excessive amount of litter in an old flooded quarry used by people for swimming. Sadly they left an awful lot of trash, so I put in just a few images towards the end deliberately meant to have impact. I believe there is a spiritual message in the words too and Scotland is very dear to my heart, so I did want to kind of express that in the video - perhaps all the more poignant in the light of our impending referendum.

Peter Max Studio Presentation.
I was invited to participate in the Techsmith Camtasia Software Development Trials. This was one of the exercises they gave us to test out the Screen Recording Software. The programme is now concluded and we are now released from the non-disclosure agreement and can publish the work we did. This is just one example I enjoyed making.

Biker Deathwish
Black Comedy, Mashup of Biker Fails & Death Wish clips. I can't believe the irresponsibility of these bike owners on public highways and in residential areas, however, it isn't right to go round shooting people either, but this is intended as a satirical social comment which, I suppose is what the DW movie was intended to do.

moodle customising pt 1 Themes
A rough overview of how I managed to change some aspects of the basic "more" theme in Moodle. This took me about 30 minutes to work out beforehand and 10 minutes to demonstrate. There are obviously better more specific tutorials by other people who are more expert, but if you want a quick overview - it was simply to prove it could be done, even with my basic skills.

Quick & rough edit of some old footage I have been meaning to compile to commemorate our old faithful dog. She unfortunately had a stroke recently, so is not so agile. Music Neil Young "Long may you run" not a new idea, but I did think of it all by myself.

Empyrion Crash course by Mr Eon
Okay, after a bit more playtime and some research, I've finally got round to making a tutorial I genuinely hope will help people to get into the game faster & easier - so they can have more fun. Big thanks to all in the Steam Community who encouraged me to give the game another chance when I didn't take to it initially. I have had a lot of fun with it, once I learned more about building and picked up some tricks and techniques of my own. This tutorial is based on trying to cram about 150 hours of game time into one hour. It really needs to be followed up with another complimentary one focusing on building... but.... .who's got the time?

Hedgehogs at night
I couldn't fathom out what the strange noises were outside my bedroom window, so I eventually had to go and look. I managed to get some film with my smartphone and the light from that, but a torch seemed to disturb them. I assume it was an attempt at mating with a reluctant lady hedgehog. I was trying to be quiet, so I don't know what the odd bangs are, possibly me bumping the phone with the torch.

Japanese Gardens, Cowden estate, near Dollar, Clacks
The Japanese Gardens have some history, and my family had connections to the estate, so my Mother and I went to visit today. I took some hasty shots and created a rough slideshow to try and give a sense of antiquity to the whole thing... I would love to go back a few times in different light and weather and do this properly , but it was a fun thing to do to try and get an oriental feel to the shots and tweak the colours here and there.

Montcrieffe Hill.wmv
Photo-Story montage of a walk I took up Montcrieffe Hill to Tarsappie hill just below Perth. Sadly I left it a little late in the day, and it was not so bright. Anyway, I hope you enjoy, I thought the scenery was superb as you can see right across the Earn Valley to the South, and North along the Tay Valley and as far away as Gleneagles to the West and Falkland hill to the south, with Dundee in the East and the Grampians to the North, beyond Perth City itself.

Animations Concept Reel with voiceover
Demo of how we could improve the basic animation of a Google Earth recording of altitude chart & route maps. I did this purely to satisfy my own curiousity as to what could be done within reasonable limits of time and technicalities. Once the initial spadework of creating & editing the animated icons is done, the animations are fairly quick and easy to do.
