Cliff and I are back from the ice, and have started editing our field footage and putting our lectures together. Thanks to a fabulous video camera (Canon XF100) and some incredible locations (and hopefully some interesting commentary from us) it’s all looking really great. One of the only problems I’ve noticed so far, is that in some of the Friis Hills footage, the sound is so perfect (there was no ambient sound at all, not a breath of wind and … well, there’s nothing else there to make a noise) and the background so incredible and the light so perfect that it looks totally fake, like Cliff’s about to swing his arm around and go through the green screen. But it was real. I need to keep reminding myself that.
We’re planning to have the online course ready to go by middle of this year. We’ll keep you posted on details.
Here are some pictures from the second week on the ice:
