I decided to try something new. Limit my cuts to 5 seconds in length. Throw in some mushy music and voila! A time capsule of life that will make my kids cry when they watch it in 20 years.

I’ve gotten a lot of great responses to my Light painting with the kids video. The reaction on Youtube is overwhelming. Over 30,000 hits and counting. A lot of people on there were asking how it’s done. I put together this quick tutorial on how to setup the Canon SD900. This feature is not limited only to this model but is available on most Canon Elph series point and shoot cameras.
The more videos I do for VloMo08, the more I realize that I love the concept of tapeless recording. The biggest benefit is that it’s much faster to transfer video to the the computer. That makes it less of a burden to get stuff out. Unfortunately I don’t have a great camera like that. Some day.
For now, here’s a quick video of one of our rituals. My wife combing my daughters hair.
Running out of ideas for videos already and it’s only day 5 of Vlomo08. So I looked at my desk and saw a gyroscope toy I purchased recently from the Exploratorium store in San Francisco.
As a 9-10 year old kid living in Toronto, I loved going downtown to the Eatons and Simpsons stores. They always had the best toy displays and the coolest stuff. At Simpsons I was mesmerized by a demonstration of this cool gyroscope toy that could do, what appeared to me, some amazing tricks that defied the laws of physics.
I wanted that toy so bad that year. I never got it. I ran into it 30 years later and now, $6.50 later, it’s sitting on my desk. After palying with it however, I realized that it not so cool after all.
