16 Down, 84 To Go

It looks like I accidently completed another item on The List.

#23. Visit Canada.

With my visit to Klas in Australia I’ve also shaved off another continent on item number 50. I’ll probably make it to Africa one day, Antarctica will be more of a challenge.

In Canada we used a camcorder I brought with me from work and we shot about 90 minutes of raw video. I’m hoping to edit down to maybe 5 to 10 minutes of at least semi-interesting material and Hans Olav has provided me with a copy of a rather advanced video editing tool. The software manual is a whopping two thousand pages and I’m not planning to read through it all, but from what I gather “logging” the clips is a good idea.

The DV camera has marked each clip on the tape, so in theory it should not be much work to log the clips, but so far I’ve been unable get the editing software to actually use the marks for anything useful.

What would life be without the daily challenge?
