Dash Cam: Compilation 5



South Florida Driving 101.  Dash cam compilation 5.  Trying to stay on top of all the footage from the two vehicles.   It’s amazing how fast it is piling up.  Picking up my speed as I learn new things.  Editing this kind of footage is time-consuming at the least.  Fun as can be.  Was able to figure out how to add a watermark across the footage to prevent piracy.  Can’t believe I’ve done it but it must be so.  It is a lot of work creating just one video.

This footage is good with chaos and maybe an aircraft engine or wing on fire landing at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood airport.  Of course all the no indicator signals you need.  Footage is from dK2 filmed in Fort Lauderdale and Miami on March 28, 2017.  Enjoy. -13

Dash Cam: Compilation 4

South Florida Driving 101 time again.  The next video is live on YouTube.  Driving lesson 4 from Fort Lauderdale to Homestead and back again footage courtesy of dK2.  This is just one day of driving experience in South Florida.  Too many titles to mention.  There seems to be a theme in this one of no turn signals.  The people turning in the construction zone reached a new level of dumb.  Look close, they’re working below grade in a manhole.  Not sure why the police officer parked in front of that work crew wasn’t issuing tickets or at least warnings for crap like that.

“Merging Lane Hog” was a particularly interesting piece of lane hoarding.  Not sure what that person was trying to do.  Driving didn’t seem to be one of them.  “Confused ?” reminds me of one thing, the night my friend and I caught a guy robbing a store.  Something about the way the car stops, jumps forward, then moves again.  Exactly the way it began in the highway median that night.

More editing fun with the cloud thought bubbles in “Signal? It’s just an afterthought”.  That was really fun and challenging to make.  And, totally low-budget in every way.  Just the way I like it.  During editing I’ve been noticing a few things in the back ground that went unnoticed at first and unfortunately I’ve deleted them already, videos documenting interesting art, architecture, major highway construction, city skyline kind of things.  Things that are part of a changing history.

It has inspired me to make sure to keep that material and make future videos for everyone to see what things looked like at that particular time.  There is a new title “Building Art”, it features slowed down footage of art visible on buildings or structures.  As always this video is family friendly. -13

Dash Cam: Compilation 2

South Florida Driving 101 Compilation 2.  Here is video two of your south Florida driving education.  This lesson features “waste not, want not, a stich in time”, “trading places”, “no time for signaling”, “ambulance cut-off”, “special technique parking”, and “yellow-line drifter”.

This video like all the others offered an opportunity to learn something new when editing in iMovie.  I’ve wondered how to highlight a particular moving object or item.  After watching a couple of YouTube videos I was able to add an arrow to follow and highlight two moving cars.  I’m not very good at it, it’s totally amateur and low-budget.  Perfect for this project.  Watch my edits and you’ll see.  I like to use all the editing tools but still keep that 70’s B movie low budget feeling.

Ride along for more south Florida now you know why the insurance rates are so high driving.  Please remember, buckle up and watch for motorcycles, ’cause we’re not driving bumper-cars at the county fair.  -13
