Two new videos up, one tied to a news event

READING CENTER, Reading Township, New York, USA - In the last few days *subject2change Media has put up two videos and also published a story in the local Watkins Glen Review, Express & Observer.

Here is a link to the story:

Reading Planners shut down public comment

And below are the two videos.

In the next day or two, there will be a longer video, featuring the Cardboard Boat Races, scheduled to begin in about two hours.

And yes, I will be shooting with the big camera.

Always bring the big camera, always bring the big camera, always...

HECTOR, New York, USA - Monday night, out relaxing at the Rasta Ranch Winery, I heard Brett Beardslee (known locally as Uncle Bumpy) and Delta Mike Shaw, (known locally as Delta Mike Shaw) playing the blues and other tunes for a very appreciative crowd.

The big Panasonic video cam was home safe, still chock full of Zumba footage of Brenda Fitch (to be edited soon, I hope) and so I had to rely on the use of my handy Flip video.

It did a very credible job in a pinch. The results are below..

But the big cam is going to be traveling more.

Video and story about U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand posted

WATKINS GLEN, New York, USA - A second video (produced by *subject2change Media) has been posted by the Watkins Glen Review & Express and The Observer newspapers.

This time it was a fish-in-a-barrel shoot of a Democratic U.S. Senator visiting a local elementary school to see how well $170,000 in federal money is being spent to teach middle school kids about how to use new technologies, like the internet and wireless devices.

Most of the kids are way ahead of the adults in this case. But some aren't. And that's what the grant was all about.

But it was a pleasant event, with 25 or so local dignitaries on site, all wanting to shake the senator's hand.

And the senator? She seems genuinely more pleasant than most national-level politicians and very low key.

She arrived in the car to the right. Yes, it's a Volkswagen.

And unlike her California senatorial counterparts, (whom I am more used to writing about), Sen. Gillibrand travels with a handful of staff - and no giant security apes with earphones and packing automatic pistols.

Here's a link to the story and video:
