Home-spun videos.


These short videos are for amusement only.
They where all produced from clips taken on either a simple trail camera
or one or more of several Canon compact cameras I have owned.

At least they are are a little more fun than
the numerous commercial projects I used to produce,
almost invariably involving noisy machinery
and the technical descriptions of each product's sales advantages.

All videos are HD and can be played full screen.


Two Dams
A brief look at two of the Elan Valley dams – Autumn 2017:
Pen-y-Garreg overflowing and Caban Coch under pipework repair.

The Local Fantastic Beasts
A roughly compiled selection of garden visitors during winter 2017.

This was the first video from a trail camera mounted in the back garden.

This was a test to show that even imperfect footage can be made into something watchable.

Whistlers and Water Lovers
Produced from some brief holiday clips of a walk alongside the Afon Nyfer estuary in Newport, Pembrokeshire.

An early attempt, produced from trail-cam footage over several days, with the camera moved to different viewpoints.

Who's out there tonight?
Watch who prowls the garden while we sleep.

More trail-cam footage from multi positions around the garden through Spring and Summer 2014.

Nature Note: Herons - The Movie
A combined edit of three original videos shot on a Canon compact camera at Malvern Pool, Solihull.
