YouTube Episode 2

I’ve been spending a lot of time learning what makes good video and what makes bad video. Since launching my YouTube channel a couple of weeks ago, I think I’ve made some progress in that area. My second episode of Mike’s Dam Photo Journal on YouTube is out. I almost went back and re-recorded it because I found myself a little preoccupied with making sure the recording was working ok, which made me forget to mention a few things I would have otherwise pointed out. But the things I missed on a few of the pictures will get covered later as those same pictures will no doubt get reused along the way. In the meantime, here’s episode 2 of Mike’s Dam Photo Journal.

My YouTube Channel is Live!

Hey friends, I have launched my YouTube channel! Recording, editing, and posting videos is a new experience for me and one that I’m enjoying. I have quite a bit of experience recording, editing, and producing audio but video is a different world altogether.

I posted the movie trailer I made for my YouTube channel in my last post here. Today I want to share my first YouTube episode with you as I take a look back at Page Arizona in the early 1960s. Check it out. Subscribe. Share it.

Short Video Trailer: Introducing Mike’s Dam Photo Journal

I have too much time on my hands. I made this short video trailer using some of my pics. It came out pretty dramatic and I found myself suddenly craving popcorn. I posted it on Facebook a few minutes ago and I tried to post it on Instagram (Mike’s Dam Photo Journal) but it’s just over 3 minutes. I guess they have rules over there. Anyway, check it out…

Video: Glen Canyon Dam Construction

I came across this video showing some good footage of the Glen Canyon Dam construction as well as some great shots of early Page Arizona. Some of the narration gets a little cheesy but the footage is amazing. You may even recognize some of the faces. I was surprised to see Chet Huntley narrating it. After the first minute and half to two minutes in, it picks up and gets good. The total length is only 27 minutes.

Enjoy!

Videos: Glen Canyon Dam Construction

These are five videos by Gary Ladd on the construction of Glen Canyon Dam. There are some really good shots and info in these. When you watch them on YouTube, one video goes right into the next. I’m not sure if that will happen here too, so I’m putting all five parts in this single post. These are also on my Videos page in the link in the sidebar.

Part One:

Operation Glen Canyon

This is a pretty cool  28 minute video documentary on the first four years of construction of Glen Canyon Bridge and Dam. Thank you Donna for posting this link on our Facebook page!
