19 March 2022

Today I've tidied this page up a little and moved stuff to the archive pages (links further below on page) as this page had become way too long. Well, that's it, it's a nice day today so it's time for beer (or beers)  :)

 


17 March 2022

On 12th March I posted the third video of Cala Bona, Majorca based on our latest trip there in 2021. It's called Cala Bona: A Day in October and I filmed it in 4K Ultra-HD resolution (3840 x 2160) as a test to what was possible. I particularly wanted to see how my laptop coped with high-resolution footage and was pleased with the results. I doubt I can produce 2-hour videos in this format at this time though as the rendering times are horrendous. It took 7 hours to render/compile the edited video which runs for 12 minutes and 6 seconds. A 2-hour video would therefore take 72 hours approx. of laptop time to compile. No chance. I am thinking of producing a 30-minute video in 4K next time though :)

I'm also thinking of filming the next full-length Cala Bona video in FHD 60fps (1920 x 1080); the previous full-length video, Happy Days in Cala Bona, was filmed in FHD 30fps (1920 x 1080). I have to complete some tests first to see how that would go but it should produce a smoother, more realistic picture. I've looked into 8K 24 fps (7680 x 4320) but the file sizes are very big and I imagine the rendering times would be massive so I think it's going to be a while before I film extensively using that.

The only other  question I've been debating with myself is whether to get another camera or stick with the ones I've got. Research, research, research.

It's a nice day today so it's time for beer :)

 


05 March 2022

Following on from last week's posted video (see previous entry below) I've today posted a Cala Bona (Majorca) video titled A Perfect Day in Cala Bona to YouTube, a few clips set to a song I really like, Perfect Day, perfectly sung by Miriam Stockley.

Next Saturday, 12th March, I'll be posting another video titled Cala Bona: A Day in October which I filmed in UHD as a test. That's all, time for tea :)

 


26 February 2022

Today I have posted our latest Cala Bona, Majorca video to YouTube, titled Happy Days in Cala Bona. It's a very long video running for 2 hours, 17 minutes and 41 seconds so I wonder how many people will actually sit through the entire thing :)

Hope anyone who watches it enjoys it, I'm sure the next one will be shorter :)

 


16 February 2022

Well that was 2021, did pretty much what I said in my last entry below but did manage to get to Cala Bona, Majorca for a holiday. It was quieter there than usual but we enjoyed it just as much in truth. I started editing the footage from that holiday on 18th October and the final edit, titled Happy Days in Cala Bona, will go live on YouTube on 26th February 2022. After that I will be editing a shorter, secondary Cala Bona video filmed in 4K/UHD.

Well that was Christmas, welcome to the New Year.

What excitement awaits us all this year, it looks like it will be another interesting year one way or another.

At the moment there isn't a lot of videos for me to edit, only old unfinished projects, so I will carry on watching more TV and reading books. Simple often works best. I prefer a quiet life nowadays anyway, watching TV is no hardship for me :)

Prize-winning author of the Doctor Who Magazine Star Letter Issue 514

2nd July 2017:

Bucket list completed*.

I am now the prize-winning author of the Doctor Who Magazine Star Letter for Issue 514, which went on sale as of 29th June 2017. No seriously, stop laughing, it's a big thing, and it tickled my sense of humour. As if there wasn't enough good reason to buy the magazine in the first place!

I received an email from Peter Ware from the magazine the day the magazine went on sale letting me know my communication was Star Letter and had won a Dr Who book as a prize (as above).

*Never had a bucket list, never going to. But if I had this would have been on it.

Pictures: cover to the must-have magazine

of all-time and the resulting prize.

Doctor Who - Twelfth Nigh

Doctor Who - Twelfth Night

Adventures in Time and Space with Peter Capaldi

Order from:     Amazon.co.uk     Amazon.com

Peter Capaldi's Doctor Who - unpredictable, embattled, mercurial - has raised many fresh issues for followers of the Timelord. In this book, international experts on the show have been brought together to explore the era of Capaldi and Steven Moffat. They evaluate the effect of Capaldi's older age on the series' pace and themes; his Scottish-ness and representations of Scotland in Doctor Who's history, and the roles of the Doctor's female companions. The politics of war are addressed, as is the development of UNIT in the show, as well as controversial portrayals of the afterlife and of immortality. There's discussion of promotional discourses in the public sphere worldwide, of imagining the Twelfth Doctor in fan fiction and fan art, fan responses to the re-gendering of the Master as female, and Christmas television and the uncanny. For fans, scholars, and viewers, this book is a fitting tribute to and assessment of Peter Capaldi's Doctor Who.

Edited with an Introduction by Andrew O’Day
