About the DSLR

So, I was finally able to get some time, and as planned, worked with the wife’s DSLR camera, in an attempt to improve the video quality of the various projects.  Dedicated power cord so that the battery doesn’t die – check.  Large enough memory card to hold many hours of …

The pencil box, revisited

As part of my ongoing efforts with videos, I recorded my recent wood working project to craft an art pencil box for the wife.  Following the project, I had several hours of footage, which I finally managed to start to tackle last night.  Audio is non-existent – the video camera …

Video quality

In my continuing effort to produce better quality in my videos, I have focused previously on the audio, and very successfully (from my perspective) resolved much of the concerns with an upgrade to a dedicated audio recorder (the Zoom H1 audio recorder to be exact).  This device works very well, …

Rise of the Runelords, Chapter 3.3 (video)

Finished the initial edit of the latest game, with the full game video.  Tried a different technique, due to the angle of the camera.  Given its position (and lack of a zoom), there was a lot of surrounding view of the group and activity.  Although its not really an issue, …

Rise of the Runelords, Chapter 3.3

Another successful gaming session with our large group, with the start of the assault on Fort Rannick.  In the last session, the group had arrived to find that the fort had been overrun by a large clan of Ogres.  Working with the last survivor of the Black Arrows ranger troop, …

Pre-publishing is better

So, if you have been a long time follower of my website efforts (which would surprise me if there is anyone), you may have noticed that my ability to routinely and regularly post a daily update has improved with this most recent iteration.  Previously, I would post something every day, …

Pathfinder, meet the characters

Its been a while since I posted a copy of the current characters for our existing Pathfinder Rise of the Runelords campaign, so I wanted to provide an update.  In truth, my previous post may not have survived the original website outage back in January/February, so this may end up …

Expanded Armada Fleets

I continue to slowly expand my Star Wars Armada collection, adding a single set of each of the various ships at a slow but steady pace.  Since I need to outfit both Rebels and Empire, I try to keep both sides roughly equal by adding equivalent ships each time. This …

Video opportunities

Since I have been attempting to film various activities over the last few weeks, I have started to notice that the interest level and opportunities for filming are actually becoming more common.  It is almost as if having used the process, I am more in tune with it, and are …

Its a…. box!

Successful woodworking project over the weekend, crafting version 2 of the art pencil box for the wife.  This time, the construction was 100% Purpleheart, a far more exotic wood than the basic plywood and chipboard of the original.  In particular, I was challenged by a lack of jointer and planer, …
