"Whitney Newsreel"

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

"Whitney Newsreel"

Postby Rosabella » Thu Jan 28, 2010 10:42 am

Last summer we celebrated the 50th anniversary of our 1st Whitney summit, and last weekend we had a "Family Film Festival", where we were all able to watch the various videos we created for this special event.

My nephew, Wesley, posted his on YouTube - it's only two minutes and very much in the style of the old "newsreels" we used to see in the theater before the feature movie. He did a great job with his "voice over" in the style of Lowell Thomas and the black and white effects look really authentic.

It's probably one of the most clever Whitney videos I've seen, here's the link:

Hi, Rosabella,
I've enjoyed your posts and thoughts so often, I just naturally clicked on "Whitney Newsreel" as soon as I saw it. Wow! A true original. It seems your nephew has a bright future ahead in cinema, if not parody! :D

Maybe its time for us HST'ers to start thinking again about our annual photography/motion picture award ceremony tradition, complete with gold statuette. Hmmmmm, what should we call it?

How about "the Marmot", eh? Er, what's that, Eric? OK, well, just a thought.

Anyway, nice job, and keep Wesley hiking; we'll all enjoy seeing more of you and him on the trail! :nod:
Let 'er Buck! Back in Oregon again!

Thanks Timberline.... I'll pass on your compliment to Wes. Four of us made videos, but Wes was the only one who didn't use "copyrighted music"; the rest of us did.... great for soundtracks, but unfortunately also eliminates the possibility of posting on YouTube.

It's OK.... we had a great time!
