In that dream state that seems to befall the best of us when referring to the passing of time, here I am ten years later. On a summer vacation in August 2000 I was off to southern Ontario with my family to explore Toronto, Ottawa, and Niagara Falls for the first time. It was marked by the purchase of my brand new D8 camcorder (digital!) just a few weeks before that gave me that opportunity to shoot in a way I never had before.
My reverence for this trip comes largely from the edits I managed to create on the fly - something that is far more complicated than it sounds. At 16 I had no computer of my own, no video editing software, and I managed to pull off three separate edits synced to music (while touring!) entirely in-camera.
The project was unnecessarily complicated in retrospect, but 10 years later I'm still impressed by the exercise I put myself through.
