Preview of the next video: House Tour

Tony (a.k.a “Booger”) shows our house to the world after Daddy spent the day deep cleaning. (Mommy’s eyes popped out of her head and rolled around on the floor when she came home to a “house” instead of a “habitat.”) I got about as much cooperation as I can expect from an 8 year old who was pulled away from the PlayStation for 20 minutes. Preteen kids can either help you learn patience and compassion, or they can deepen your understanding as to why some animals eat their young. It all depends on your attitude.

This is a sneak preview of the real video to come as soon as I finish editing. The final version will look a WHOLE lot better in hi-res widescreen. The cheapo ultra wide-angle lens I picked up on Friday for US $50 is wonderful. When the video is encoded at half the resolution of DVD, you can barely notice the chromatic aberration around the edges.

I took a couple more videos over the weekend. They’ll be out this week. Along with the podcast from the Apple Store in Shibuya that goes along with the video I posted a few weeks back.

    1. Wow, what did you do, watch the movie frame by frame?

      It’s a small space for storage. My guess is traditionally that’s where you put the containers of pickled veggies while they’re fermenting. Every kitchen has one of those trap doors.
