Experiments with Iphone, GoPro and the new IMovie at Aspen-Snowmass by an amateur

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

This is a 9 minute video of our trip to Aspen-Snowmass made by me with clips recorded on an Iphone 5 and a GoPro Hero 2. The locations are Aspen-Highlands, Ajax(very few) and Snowmass. The clips were compiled and enjoined and then effects added with the latest incarnation of IMovie which is standard on any Mac or IMac (note our IMac is about 5 years old if not 6! but it is running the latest OSX).

 

What is interesting is - the new IMovie allows one to add all kinds of new effects (split pictures, picture in pictures, partial slo-mo etc) which professional VideoGraphers knew how to do using heavy-duty software, but now us parents who are a pain on blogs are able to as are kids and they can let their creative minds go bananas! While our compilation is not slick but it provides a window to any aspiring parent, buddy, friend, who wishes to make home movies, the latest IMovie is really quite good (though a memory hog and needs processing power, my IMac creaks and groans when I am embedded in my Spielberg-ian fantasy world - but it is a lot of fun!)

 

 

Note in the TR section, there is an excellent clip made by Bob Barnes we posted, now notwithstanding his superb instruction, guiding and company, man is a professional film-maker!

Isn't it amazing what you can do with an iPhone? 

 

Thanks for sharing the edit.

We have more power in our technological power in our packet now that we had on our desktop a few short years ago. It looks like you have a skier on your hands there, start upping your game..every day he is getting better and better while you are staying the same or going back...work on moving that target.

Phil, you are spot on, regressing or terminal while his skiing is achieving escape velocity on progress scale

It's apparent, pretty soon your trips will be based on who has the best park!

Cool to watch the progression the last few years in your videos.

Highland Bowl: Google Earth Rendition of Track - having learnt how to do this recently, it's fun checking out terrain one has skied, then 11 yo skied on April 12, 2014, snow was bulletproof rock-hard up top, Video above made by Dad and especially video Bob Barnes made shows it real well (it's on our TR from then http://www.epicski.com/t/127610/aspen-snowmass-8-days-of-non-stop-skiing-april-11-april-20-w-11-year-old ); since snow had been absent for a few days, and spring freeze-thaw was in full swing. We were with Bob Barnes. The terrain is steep, we knew it on it, but Google Earth has a nice way of focusing the mind! CLICK IT for a LARGER Image.

 

You will see remnants of the large avalanche Bob witnessed this season, and put up here; the Google Earth satellite image is from 04/03/15 so the avalanche slide debris field is quite visible!
