Video - Low level filming technique amongst the Dandelions as though you were a mouse.

This is just a test of some low level filming footage on my lawn, and yes it does need mowing !
Its too warm for mowing :) All those Dandelions really need cutting before they go to seed.

How did I film this?
I mounted my camcorder on a mono-pod and let it hang upside down as I did a flyby over the lawn. The last section of the video I did using fixed manual focus of 10cm which produced a strange effect. (played slow).

When importing upside down footage into Sony Vegas Pro 10 you right-click on the video clip and select Properties, then the Media tab and where it says Rotation set this to "180 (inverted)". This will make your footage the right way around.

Sony seemed to have drastically reduced the prices of all of their Vegas editing video packages :
