Dreams " (Rated "G") Summer 04
Desert Dreams" (Summer 2004) With footage shot in
the summer of 2000 in Arizona, MikeVideo captures the majesty of the
southwest, with a tour of the painted desert edited to an original tune,
"Latin-esk" by Jim Zabel and performed by Zed57. The footage
sat unused till 2004, however I did create a small internet video in
2000 showcasing some of the shots, and at that time I figured I didn't
really have enough good footage. You will notice a lot of transitions
in this film, because a lot of the shots are just the camera pointed
out the window of a moving truck, so not much that was taken was usable.
During editing, I noticed I only touched half of the trip with this
video. The other half, including The Petrified Forest and The Grand
Canyon, will be showcased in the sequel, "Painted Desert Dreams
II: The Grand Canyon" which hopefully I'll create sometime in the
"Beach Dreams "

Dreams (March 2004) A day at the beach with MikeVideo.
Shot during a particularly sunny weekend in early spring at Huntington
, Seal, and Cabrillo Beaches in the South Bay, the images are edited
to the beat of "Mr. Moto" an old surf tune performed by Zed57."Beach
Dreams" is the first video shot with my Sony digital videocamera,
purchased new the month I made this video. Actually, this is "Beach
Dreams 2" There was another, shorter "Beach Dreams" shot
on an overcast day at Cabrillo Beach. I scrapped all of that footage,
went back when the sun was brighter, and shot the Cabrillo footage which
is in the present video.This and "Painted Desert Dreams" were
originally streamed from this website, and then the files had to be
deleted because of bandwidth limitations. I put them back online on
my YouTube Channel in 2006.
