RZ Video Podcast #11 – More Adventures in Stanley Park Damage

The park is cleaning up from the mess that was caused from the December 2006 storm. We made a trek to see how things are going, especially since a lot more of the park has been cleared of obstacles on the trails. The best part was the tree that we encountered in the last video podcast. This time it was cut in a half and we were surprised to find that someone actually took the time to calculate the rings to determine its age. And yes, once again, another cellphone capture.

RZ Video Podcast #10 – Forbidden Stanley Park Trek

We’ve walked around the Park several times since it was closed several weeks ago [audihertz] after a storm with hurricane-force winds blasted its way through. Understandably shut off to public due to the branches, debris and fallen trees that litter the landscape to such a degree that upon beholding the devastation, a lump forms in your throat. Mother Nature sure did a number on the place. Yesterday local news was reporting that the Park had been re-opened [cbc], mostly because of the loss in tourist revenue. Stanley Park Drive, the perimeter road, was opened up although several trails were still closed off to the public. We decided to walk around one of the barriers blocking our favourite, and most frequently traveled trail. The video documents our finds. This is another video attempt with the Nokia 6682 camera phone, so if you have any comments on the quality (and even the content) please let us know in the comment section. Run time 20:07

RZ Video Podcast #9 – Coal Harbour with the camera phone

On a whim, we found ourselves downtown yesterday and couldn’t resist taking a walk down by the water before heading home. With the Nokia in my pocket, we made this video to put it into a podcast. It was a gorgeous day as the sun was setting on Vancouver.

Be sure to leave feedback on these vids we’ve been making with our cellphones. I know that the quality might be slightly lacking, but it’s so easy to make them. Turn around is quick and not very painful. We’ll probably keep doing little vids like this from time to time, so I hope you don’t mind seeing our faces once and a while.

RZ Video Podcast #8 – Cruising in the car with the camera phone

This is a major experiment with cellphone technology to do a video podcast. Not the best quality in the world, but in a pinch, this Nokia can do some nice stuff. Leave comments and do your worst. I told you we’d do something before Christmas, and this is coming in right under the wire.

We were driving around, checking out the festive lights in the area, so I had the idea to make this vid while we made our way back home from Christmas Eve gatherings. A year in review, hopes for the new year, and other various things that I can’t remember. Watch it to find out. We have Christmas things to enjoy right now.

Best wishes this holiday! 🙂

RZ Video Podcast #7 – Downtown Vancouver; Granville Street; Lighting of the Inukshuk

A collection of vids that I’ve made with my digital camera, here is another video podcast for your enjoyment.  I even make a little appearance in this episode to further explain what’s going on.

RZ Video Podcast #6 – Riding the SkyTrain

This video podcast is a collection of clips that I have taken over a period of various rides on the SkyTrain. The motion might be a little too much for the encoding to handle, and my camera does not take the highest resolution of movies. More so, I can’t afford a compact flash card with greater capacity to shoot a lot of high resolution movies. I might experiment with that in the future, but doing so fills up the two, 128Mb cards that I currently own very quickly.

I hope you enjoy seeing what it’s like riding on the SkyTrain. I know that I enjoy every ride I get to take.

RZ Video Podcast #5 – Walking Around Stanley Park

This video podcast takes you along with me as I walk through Stanley Park. These vids were shot with my digital camera during the recording of episode #74 of the regular podcast. It’s short, but I do my best to give you some of the sites in the park and surrounding areas on a gorgeous morning back in February.

RZ Video Podcast #4 – All Around the Lower Mainland

Another experiment into video, this podcast is a collection of videos that I have made over the past few months with my digital camera. The quality of the video isn’t the most superb, but I am attempting to use what I have to create as much original content that I can. I’m also doing my best to show you more of Vancouver, BC through my Iowan eyes.

This video takes you through downtown Vancouver, shows what a snowy day in New Westminster and Surrey is like, driving through downtown, over the Pattullo Bridge, the Trans-Canadian Highway at night, over the Lions Gate Bridge in the dark, and ends in Coal Harbor during sunset.

Music used in this video podcast:

  • Vate – stravinsky (The RadioZoom Podcast theme music)
  • Vate – marimba
  • Grigor Iliev – winter story
  • Vate – patria / extranjero

RZ Video Podcast #3 – First Canucks Game

My adventures of living in Vancouver continue with this short movie I made from my first Vancouver Canucks game at GM Place. It was an amazing experience that I will more than likely never forget. My hope is to just share some of these experiences with my subscribers as I go through discovering all the neat and wonderful things that this city has to offer.

RZ Video Podcast #2 – Downtown to Stanley Park

This is a lengthier project into the realms of video podcasting. For those from Vancouver, you might not find this to be too interesting. I took a walk downtown and then into Stanley Park with my digital camera with the intent of coming up with some video to edit together for this podcast. I’m still learning how to make this all work in nearly all aspects, but I think I’m getting the hang of things.

By all means, tips and rips on what I am doing and not doing are very much appreciated!
