John, a suggestion for your project:

I think you have a great opportunity here for a great story and could be a great learning experience of how to use aerial video.

Tell me the stroy behind the Southern Plains Research Center Construction. Who is the builder? What is the Southern Plains Research Center going to be?

I think if you treated your project just like a TV reporter would it would tell a story and the aerial video would be the "B roll" footage behind the story. You could have the construction project people do the talking and tell the story behind the project and their company.

Jay just posted a great video of his tv spot. The aerial shots just blend into the story.

This is going to be a great thread to watch your progress over time.

Well had a short meeting with the general contractor this evening,, and he said that the guy's in Washington D.C. really liked the video... I wish that I woudl have redone the video,, I didn't know that people in D.C. was going to see it,, And to top that off we now have 5 jobs waiting to be done now.. All for differant people,, I told them all it was $250.00 for 2 hours on site,, So far no worries..
I'm hopeing that this project with this company will really pan out.. You never know.. They do things all over the world,, Sure would be nice to have them send us from job to job.. That would be cool..
I have a new video that we shot today. As soon as I get it uploaded to Jody and he sends me a address, I'll post it,, Much better video.. Best that I have done so far,, Things are starting to come together,, I hope.. XGM formally known as John Crotts

John,
Sounds like things are working in your favor! Congrats!

Now if I could just view the video. For some reason, I can view everyone else's videos but anything streamed from Jody's site just gives me a series of stills. I'm running the newest version of Media Player with all updates. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Sounds, and looks, like you're off to a really good start. Can't wait to see the next video.

Tony,

If you are getting a slide show effect then your setup is correct. Check your internet connection speed. You might be on the outskirts of a DSL line.

Jody,
I have Wild Blue satellite internet. Can't get DSL or wireless where we live so it's either dial-up or satellite. The other guys' (Jeff, Tanner, DJ, etc.) videos play fine for me. Any suggestions as to how I can make the ones from your server play?

Thanks!

I had the same problem with DSL. Few moments ago updated my MediaPlayer to version 10 and works!! The only thing i changed in options is 'autodetect my proxy settings'...

Keep it safe and keep it low profile

A friend of mine had a nice photo biz going with a Freya 90 with camera, mobile pc and printer doing real estate and marina brochure photos. Doing nicely, a grand a weekend sometimes. Joined an R/C vidio/photo users group and Homeland Security showed up and shut him down. Ran him to the FAA and wanted him to put aircraft transponder in the heli, and file flight plans. Sold the heli and equipment and bought a Harley Davidson and doesn't fly helis anymore. He was ex-Army helo pilot, no threat. Get the business going but stay off the user groups. Got miles of lakes, rivers and border with Canada here in Michigan, you would think DHS could find something better to do.

John,
Yes. I made a few changes in my Media Player settings (funny how those get changed "automagically" by Microsoft when you upgrade! ).

There were still a few pauses during the video stream, but when it played, it looked good! Nice job! Video is challenging but it's fun IMO! I've been working on some footage we shot a week ago. Hopefully I'll have something ready to put on our website this weekend. Kind of an interesting subject.
