2017-08-17 Eclipse Trip Video   August 29th, 2017

Road trip vacation with friends from San Diego to Oregon and back again, to see the 2017 solar eclipse. Lots of driving and random silliness and shenanigans.

So back in college and a couple of years after, when I had more time to be silly and creative, I had a group of friends I made really goofy movies with. What started as a project for a film course, turned into a series of spoofs of action/horror movies, all involving killer dustbunnies, which basically amounted to throwing cotton balls at people while they pretended to die horribly.

Our last film was inspired by the genetic engineering in Jurassic Park and a parody of another well-known and reviled dinosaur in the popular media at the time.

We never actually got to finish this magnum opus due to technological problems and diminishing motivation. Editing a feature-length video manually on VCRs is a lot of work!

However, my friend Matt made this excellent trailer which is likely much better than the film actually could’ve been.

The wonderful T1 Second Everyday app added a feature to create freestyle montages that weren’t restricted to 1 clip a day. That made a good tool to capture all the fun clips of friends, family and pets this past year.

This was also very precious as we lost Dad to Alzheimer’s last fall, and this montage has some videos of our last times with him.
