Part 1: Working with Melamine

12-09-2009 02:16 AM by Brian Havens | 15 comments »

This is a re-edit of the video that got me started doing videos. Unfortunately I knew very little about shooting and editing video at the time. In fact, I shot the video with a web cam, so the video quality is poor in parts. The re-edit gives it a nice face lift, but perhaps in the future, when I run low on topics, I can re-shoot the video.

I am happy to release my next Straightedge video. I am also exited that the topic this time has to do with turning. When I finally got the footage to make the funny bit at the beginning of the video, I was overjoyed to finally proceed with making a video that addresses the issue of using logs from trees cut down in urban areas. This was supposed to be an easy video to make, but it turned out to be my most difficult yet. The original title of this video was “Turning Green Wood”...
