Yesterday made had a post reminding people about the Gowalla.com/Freelance Whales video contest.  The rules > here.   I was saying that my entry was all most done.  Well it is done now.  Finished it off when I got home from work today.  Didn’t take long as I thought to finish.  Added some After Effects to a few clips.  Thought that was going to take me awhile to do.  The tutorial I used was really helpful.  Upload the video to YouTube and Vimeo.  So that is why there are two copies below.

This is a reminder of the video contest Gowalla.com is putting on with Freelance Whales.  Using their song Location.  The contest is all most over.  I do believe it ends June 12, 2011.  You can read the rules > here.

Need to kick myself, to finish up my entry.  I have the bulk of it edited.  The opening and end are done to were I am happy.  The middle was a bit more tricky.  How ever that is all most done.  Just want to do something different to the footage to spice it up a bit.   The weekend is all most here will have to spend some time and finish it.  Check back because I will be posting it on my blog as well.

Have decide to enter the video contest I talked about yesterday.  In short it is a contest put on Gowalla.com to make a video for the song Location by Freelance Whales.  You can read more about that > here.  Any who.  Was trying to come up with some ideas.  Have a few, then I thought some time laps would be cool to add it.  Never made a time laps video before so gave it a go today.  Used my new GoPro HD Hero 960 since it lets you take pictures very so many seconds.  Got some really nice pictures of the sun with the clouds moving by.  I How it has been done before but I have never tried.  It took me a lot longer than I thought it would to edit.  It did turn out really good thou.  Not going to post it since it is part of the video I am making for the contest.

I have come across a lot of video contest.  Most of them the rules didn’t allow me to enter, the time frame was not good or there was know way I can pull off a good video.  Checking FaceBook updates today there was one from Freelance Whales.  Have posted about this band in the past.  Really like their songs.  Well they and the website Gowalla.com are putting on a video contest.  The rules are pretty simple.  They want to make a video about exploring, discovering and sharing with friends and family.  Using Freelance Whales song Location.   The way I understand it is the contest will run the duration of their North American tour.  April 10 to June 12, 2011.  Once you are done your video you can upload it to YouTube or Vimeo.  Send the link to Gowalla.com or post the link in the comment section of the contest post.  Which is > here.  Check it out.  Plan to make one now.  Just need to think up some ideas.
