A nice video detailing the release of a fantastic collaborative album between Dr. John and some musical greats.
Nice B-Roll footage of him walking ’round Crescent City, as well as interviews with the other musicians and showing some studio time.
Bon temps roulez, y’all.

I found many interesting video stories in discovery.com. Sometimes, you don’t need to watch a full video to know a whole story. The scenes of the ocean waves in a hurricane of the deleted clips are very impressive! I think they did have at least two camera to record these: one on the ship and another on another ship nearby. But, I think that they also shoot the repetitive fishing actions from the same camera to make matched actions in this clip. Bellowed the video, there are a playlist contains more clips. I wish you also enjoy them!

I tried this earlier but I don’t think it worked – good multimedia documentary about the Galapagos Islands.

This video explains why we should be impressed even when hitters do something as “basic” as get a base hit. The leadoff hitter is a testament to the importance of good hitting (not just good home run hitting). The lead off hitter is generally a player who has a high batting average, high on base percentage, faster runner, hits to get on base–not so much for power or to hit home runs.

After considering that, then the respect for the home run hitter sets in because so many factors need to occur for a home run to occur.

To me, it adds  context to the significant accomplishments of the baseball’s hitting legends  and why they comprise a small yet distinguished and celebrated group in the sport.

Since it is the holidays, I’m sure everyone had lots of turkey. I found a good video clip (with good shots/b-roll) on how to make a crispy golden roast turkey. Enjoy and make sure to watch the transitions in the video!

Hi Class,

Here are two videos that I thought were good.  One is a critique of Fox news [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVr-isZIEXU] and the other is about the death penalty [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNNGCn-MeF8].

The link above is for an audio slide show by NYT sports writer Jay Schreiber from early 2008. At that time, Roger Clemens was a public relations disaster having been named in the Mitchell Report, in which former Yankees trainer Brian McNamee claimed he injected Clemens with  steroids. Schreiber sets the scene because both will testify before Congress. He begins by reminding the viewer about the 2005 Congressional hearings on steroids (Mark McGuire and his not being there to talk about the past and Rafael Palmeiro’s finger wagging) and then moves on to argue/predict that the 2008 hearings will be of greater consequence than the 2005 hearings.

cnet is a site interested in all things technology-related. This link is an audio slide show where cnet covers the the photo shoot of Major League Baseball 2k9, a video game. San Francisco pitcher Tim Lincecum is the cover person for the game and the show is about the process that goes into the photo shoot and how the player movements for the game are captured.

 

Professor Johnson,

I was wondering if you could post the class notes with the information on the camera modes and operations.

Thanks

I found this audio slideshow which I think is put together very well. The images help to enhance the narration. The slideshow is about Iran’s role in the world since 1979.
