Ilyse and I rode the train together from Chicago to San Francisco in December 2013. About 50 hours, 2400 miles - Amtrak's California Zephyr is America's longest railroad ride. Here's our coverage:
I ended up taking a week off from my one-video-per-week commitment, to celebrate my birthday. Fortunately, I was covered by the lovely surprising effort by Taylor Skillin who remixed my videos to date for this: "Justaposition"
Thanks to Ilyse for the stop-motion and time-lapse GoPro photography!
Thanks to the person who put the California Zephyr route on Google Maps.
Thanks be to Final Cut Pro X, or something because I wore a shirt with small red checks and when I was editing it looked like crazy moiré. Once I rendered, however? It looked as bad as my normal videos! Hallelujah!
I promised to do one video per week for the last few months of 2013. Almost done! Then I'm gonna work on a single longer video about this here web site in January 2014. That's my plan! Plans are hilarious, but still helpful. Nothing happens as we can predict since possibilities are vast. I am happy to have a conception of my-time-well-spent for another few weeks at least! We shall see how my vision coincides with our shared universe in time.
