While ramping up the filming last year for our YouTube channel a ton of video clips were produced. These included coral closeups, neat fish, incredible reef tanks, and plenty of underwater footage of natural reefs that I’ve just started wading through.
Not all of these fit into a nice neat narrative of a story that could be told in a standalone video, and many of them are some of the highlights from a year’s worth of training in video capture and editing. But they all deserve a first or second look so instead of crafting some overarching story to these clips, I decided to simply compile them into a nice montage of reef life eye candy.
Making basic videos is easy – making the best videos I know how is a real challenge with steep learning curves at every turn and lots of time spent staring at monitors sorting, editing and compiling it all together. After ten years of blogging with pictures and words, a decade of producing ReefStock, and keeping my own reefs through it all, making videos for our new and old readers alike has been a very rewarding experience and I can’t wait to see what this coming year will bring.
