Flipping for Video

As some of you may know, I have become a Flip camera, digital moviemaking fiend.

My colleagues still laugh at an early blog post featuring a glass of water that I found captivating.  Since that time my knowledge and interest in digital video has grown and I am working with the faculties of several middle and high schools with the ways this technology can be used by students in a variety of content classrooms. The possibilities are endless.

Recently, my computer was running rather sluggishly, and our tech troubleshooter discovered that I had 700 video clips on my desktop (as I said I ‘m still learning). These clips run the gamut;  some are of teachers and students working together;  clips of things I found visually arresting; interviews with people; and how to videos. In future blogs I will share some of this work and the work of students.

I find inspiration for movies in many different places and today I would like to share two of my favorites, by Cristobal Vila of Eterae studios, www.etereaestudios.com

These videos trigger a constellation of connections for me and are delightful to sit back and experience. They remind me of the power of art, architecture, video…. And dare I say? Mathematics.

    what do you use? Thanks
