The Projectionist's raw footage is loaded


The view from within Apple's iMovie®. Wait for the Kino view, though.

Yes, your Projectionist has finally done it. To the strains of a 1972 live recording of Giacomo Puccini's opera Turandot (on the budget Gala label — the most the Projectionist can afford these days), he loaded some 21 minutes of raw video shot in and around New York City's (in–)famous Times Square (it gave up the skin trade for this?!).

Some of the footage is a little unsteady at normal speed and will be slowed down a little. Other shots will likely get superimposed, one on top of another as soon as we get a chance to sort things out.

We're saving the raw footage for Kino practice on our Linux (Kubuntu = Ubuntu + KDE) boxes, by the way. For fun and profit who knows?

(One small postscript: I was saddened to see that my favorite Japanese restaurant, the cash–only Sapporo Restaurant, is no more. So I found myself over at Teriyaki Boy just north of Times Square. Not as much variety, but at least I can eat good there.)
