How Do You Shoot Video In Cuenca?

4 years ago I shot the video below with my Canon HD Vixia Camcorder. Now the camcorder gathers dust in my closet since I shoot all my videos with my Nexus 6 smartphone with 4K resolution. Never miss a photo or a video because my smartphone is always in my pocket.

Please take 10 seconds and take the poll. Enjoy the video

The Dangerous Streets Of Cuenca (Sarcasm)

We are having a challenge convincing some important people in our lives to come visit us in Cuenca so Sharon and I created this video of our  barrio (neighborhood).  The video is a little longer than most of the videos I create but I think it’s worth a view because of Sharon’s sense of humor and insight.

ScreenFlow – Part One

If you’re not a Mac Geek then Screenflow will be of no interest to you. It is basically the best screencasting, video editing combocasting program around.  What will be of interest to everyone who reads this blog is how I recorded the video and then added original music( which I created using Garageband), voice over, text and annotation. I’m in the learning mode so get ready for some better productions in the future.

The 2:30 video below is about my walk to the barber shop and what I encountered on the way. Basically I treked through 4 Cuenca Barrios without walking through El Centro.
