It’s about time! In fact it’s been over a year and a half since we have posted one of our travel videos. We have not lost our passion for creating a video documentary of our trip. We simply lost decent internet connectivity for a long time, and got WAY behind on our video editing.
To put some numbers behind the video process, it takes 20-40 hours of work for each 10-15min video we produce. 50% of the time involves the visual graphics and audio scripting. That’s a lot of time. Can we shorten the process? Yes, but, I have an inherent fault…I tend to be a perfectionist and want the videos to be done to the best of my ability. I’m not a professional, but like to find ways to continually improve the quality and content of each video we produce. We’re documenting this for our family, and happen to have a large audience of followers enjoying this along with us.
So what can you expect for 2016? LOTS more videos. We are in process of sorting through our footage – over 20 hours in the past 18 months, and sequentially following our journey to New Zealand.
The segments for the video series to be published this year are:
- Panama – Guna Yala (current video release)
- Panama Canal (finished and we’ll release soon)
- Galapagos Part 1
- Galapagos Part 2
- South Pacific Crossing Refresh
- French Polynesia Part 1
- French Polynesia Part 2
- French Polynesia Part 3
- Fiji Part 1
- New Zealand
- Fiji Part 2
This translates to about 1 video per month. We actually plan on pushing all of these through the production process in the next three months while in New Zealand. The footage has been shot, so we are simply in a post production phase for all of these videos. That means time, lots of time to edit and publish.
I hope you enjoy this latest installment of the Field Trip Video blog!
