Google Earth Movie (848 x 480) dissolves to volunteer workers

Click on the image to the left to view the movie. The original was produced in HDV 720P . This movie has been reduced in Window size to 848 x 480. It is an experimental movie to create a dissolve transistion between a Google Earth movie and a HDV sequence taken on the ground at the same spot where the fly in ends. The video was taken on September 30, 2006. You can also see this video at my space.

It starts with a view high above idaho and flys down toward the Little Salmon River, near New Meadows Idaho. A group of "River Mender" volunteers have been engaged for several years in rehabilitating the vegetation along the river bank. An audio track is provided to explain some details of the project.

An interactive web site is "under construction" for the River Menders project.

Thank you Jerry,

I used the Sony HDV FX1 to shoot the field video.

In another post to my vlog, on December 9, 2006, I added music to this clip and uploaded it in a 720P (1280x720) size.
