moving pictures



Hope you guys had a great long weekend (or even just a regular one!) I had Tuesday off as well so mine was extra looong. However--I put my time to good use, namely by finally finishing up editing all the Super8 footage I took during my trip with the Pains to Japan, Australia and New Zealand back in February (see photos posts here, here and here.) It was really hard cramming all the highlights into 2:40 (guess that's what I get for choosing the shortest song off their album?) but I think I got most of the best bits in there!

Anyways, I hope you like it! I encourage you to click through and watch it a bit bigger/better quality if you have the time. Also, and I can't say this enough: thank you a million times over to everyone in the band and to everyone who helped make our trip possible. Here's to the memoriessss!!

P.S.
I put together a post talking a bit about Super8 last year, but if you guys have any other questions please feel free to ask away! I was fortunate this time to shoot on a borrowed Canon 518, which is a camera I'd really like to own myself and a great, basic, easy to use model.
