Editing Tricks for Amateur Vacation Video #42

Africa 2002:  Zambezi River Cruise

Yawning hippos, threatening crocodiles.  Do I really want to be on this pontoon boat?  The sunset is pretty and we see a couple of the travelers.

This is a kind-of "filler" clip.  The original media was a multi-chapter DVD, this fills a gap in the chronological sequence.  It may be of interest to those who were on the trip, but not compelling for a general audience such as "YouTube"

Lessons Learned:
Consider the audience.  This very short clip worked well in the original DVD, and jogs a memory of what we did on that afternoon.  Another person watching the DVD sees it in context and that also works well.  So USE it for that purpose, but don't expect it to go viral on the Internet.
