The Animoto treatment on some of my pictures from France.
UPDATE: The ad is gone now – and I remixed it with much better results. Each time you remix you get a different version and I find it’s often worth trying it a few times for the best result.

2008 was a difficult, contentious, exciting, and ultimately momentous year, but while the affairs of men boil away, life and nature serenely continue on. This beautiful time lapse movie from Erik Sondheim really captures the eternal heartbeat of life.
It’s worth the trip to Erik’s site to see how he did it and watch the full two minute HD version. Good news: he just got a 5D Mark II so next year’s video should be even more mind boggling.
Here’s to a happy, peaceful, and prosperous 2009 for all of us all over the world.

I’m back from vacation – I had a wonderful time – and back to work. Thanks to Alex Lindsay, Sarah Lane, Martin Sargent, Tony Wang, and Dane Golden for holding down the fort while I was gone. I hope you caught This Week in Fun with Sarah and Marty (and I hope they’ll keep sneaking into the studio to do it!). We’ll be producing shows on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day so tune in on TWiT Live and TWiT.am. And happy 2009!

I’m back from France and a wonderful visit with Abby. She’s studying there until May, so it was a real treat to spend some time with her. She’s acclimated wonderfully, and her French is excellent.
Henry and I came home yesterday. We left Jennifer behind because she lost her passport on Friday and couldn’t get a new one until today. She’ll fly back tomorrow, but I have a feeling she’s probably glad of some extra time in Paris with Abby. I know I would be.
I took well over 1000 pictures with the 5D Mark II. I’ll be sorting and posting over the next few days. I didn’t spend as much time taking pictures as I thought, though. I was having too much fun visiting Abby and la belle pays, France.
Meanwhile here’s something to tide you over. A little video Myra Joyce made for us… Happy Holidays!
