I realize that it has been more than a week ago and perhaps this may not be news fresh off of the press, but better late than never. This is a video which proves beyond a reasonable doubt that yes I did in fact complete the ten kilometer Bloemendaalseloop in just three seconds longer than forty-nine minutes. This is a pretty large video (2.5 MBytes) so it might take awhile before it is downloaded and you can play it. Please be patient.

Just click on the play-button, please.

This film was created using my Sony DCR-TRV19E Camcorder together with Pinnacle Studio DV (Studio 8 with 1394/FireWire capture card). For a larger view of the same video, please click here.

Here's a non-stop action video clip I made of Marlies playing field hockey for the GMHC (Goudse Mixed Hockey Club) girls team. As you can see, she is getting pretty darn good.

Here's a short video clip of Lennart playing baseball for the Braves. He gets a hit and easily makes it to first base for a respectable single.

Click to watch the video...In this up-close-and-personal video, Marlies introduces herself by welcoming the viewer to her own personal web page and then panning her room to give one a better idea of who she is and where she lives.

We did it after only several retakes, the most difficult aspects being the (back-)lighting which was either too dark or too light, and speaking her lines of text without (too many) errors.

The end result is pretty good I believe, not bad after an hour's struggle and the fact that Marlies is by nature a perfectionist.

Check out the video called Marlies in her room for yourself.

So I finally decided to get around to experimenting more with my Sony DCR-TRV19E camcorder and the Pinnacle Studio 8 Firewire DV system, which I have been putting off doing now for ages. There are too many other important things to do in life, but everyone is entitled to have some fun once in a while -- even good old me.

Not that I am fooling myself into believing that I am on my way to becoming an artistic director of some amazing video productions, but at least this is a good enough start as any other.

Depending on the Internet browser you are using, you hopefully should be able to view my video directly using the embedded Windows Media Player control below:

Just click on the start-button, please.

If not then I am sorry about that, but it works on my browser just great.

Otherwise you can check out the new video links I have provided for my blog at the top of the right margin here on this page. Under the heading with the title "video." See it? Depending on your system and what you have installed, you can choose between the Windows Media Player or the Real Player and a high-speed (hi) or a low-speed (lo) Internet connect.

This is only the beginning, and I plan to keep these videos coming, getting better and better by the day. Again and again something new and exciting I have to learn about and try to prove to myself that even an aging old fart like I can still figure these complicated technical things out. How much longer will it last?

I have to start (again) somewhere.
