Promo Video

For the past week, I've been working to put together a promo video for them video sharing thingies. Here's the video:

Director's notes:
  1. I've never worked with video editing before, so I fired up my copy of iMovie (free with my powerbook), and now, a few days later I have a fairly decent looking video! All software should be this easy to use, Apple made me feel like Scorcese.
  2. The music is a clip from "The Devil is Crossing Me," by the Columbines. The track is licensed as Creative Commons, and is a great example of gritty road music.
  3. Of course I call this a "video," but really, there are zero moving images - it's more of a powerpoint presentation than a movie .


  1. names for the car:


    Gethsemane - the Greek form of an Aramaic place name meaning "oil vat"

    my favorite:

    Demeter - the greek godess of agriculture

  2. I think we have a winner!

    Mary and I both love Gethsemane. It rolls of the tongue really well.

  3. Hmm, on second thought, we'll have to reconsider - apparently Gethsemane is the garden in which Jesus was betrayed by Judas. Not an association I want people to make with my car...

    Maybe Demeter? Cool association, but I don't like the actual name.

    I wonder what her Roman counterpart's name is?
