This has been a weekend spent at the computer, as I learned how to edit and upload my video entry in the "My Piece of Maine" contest on YouTube. As I have been working on video editing my various clips of light and water movements referenced in the previous posts, I thought I would kick it up a notch and enter this contest. The prizes are great! $20,000 for the 1st prize, $5,000 for the 2nd prize and 8 $1,000 prizes and there are still only 52 entries as of this writing which means the odds are pretty good. The contest deadline is tonight. The videos can be seen on YouTube. I think mine has some understated class, but who knows what the judges are looking for. Certainly this piece gives you a sense of my home and neighborhood and yet doesn't include all the cute baby pictures and home movie shtick. Enjoy, leave a comment and rate the videos if you are a YouTube fan. And above all wish me luck! This could make a hefty dent in my grad school debt or at least pay for that Mac I have been lusting after so I can make more videos.
