Road trip through Gorzyca

Production date: May 2006
Playout date: 15/6/2006
Camera: Fuji Finepix
Post Production: Windows Movie Maker
Location: Gorzyca, Poland, near Kostrzyn.

One viewer, from the 1800 plus which this has had in the first four years, instructed me to “get life” (sic) for taking this film, but when you have to drive the car anyway, and that is part of your life, then recording it and sharing it is hardly the same as needing to get out a bit more! This is the first ever “driving while filming” style, but the first of many. I’ll have a section in here for road trips as well as the Scenes from Poland and see how many km of road my viewers and I have travelled down together.

I didn’t know when I did this how much of it I would start doing, but I see that roads do have a certain beauty and driving down them does fill a certain need in our psyches, not just for me. The average rating was 3,57 which in YT’s brand new “digg” style system translates to 5 likes and 2 dislikes. Not sure what the equation for that is.

Almost all my filming-while-driving footage has been in my current car, which is a Chrysler Grand Voyager. I had taken stills photos from my previous car, but not filmed in it. The car by the way was less than two months old when I did this, so my filming while driving technique really started almost concurrently with getting this car.
