|Around May or June 1986, for high school AP English class, I created a music video by shooting scenes of Downtown Chicago on VHS. 23 years later, I've digitized the video. This re-cut video includes some of the original graphics created for the video on an Apple IIe and much of the original footage. The footage been reordered to present a video tour of downtown. With some of the tools in iMovie '09, a good deal of the "shake" in the original video has been stabilized, and the color of the faded VHS improved a bit -- though iMovie '09 isn't powerful enough to make it much better and, as I recall, the technique used for creating the original video involved something then called "Video Dubbing" which resulted in a second or even third generation copy.|
|Amazingly enough, YouTube's AudioSwap had Mozart's Symphony No. 25 in G minor which accompanied parts of this video in it's original form, so I've selected it for your listening pleasure.|
