FILM: Crib Goch Diaries

I had wanted to have a go at some documentary-style film making, so when I began my year long mission to see if hypnotherapy could cure my life-long fear of exposed heights for the paper, I decided to keep a video diary and film my attempt. The film is in two parts below, you can also read the original article here to find out more.

It was quite a steep learning curve. Learning to use new editing software as you go along is tricky enough, but it turns out recording voice over parts is much harder than I thought. It's a little more amateurish than I would have liked, but it was great fun and I would definitely recommend having a go at making one yourself - you'll never watch TV reports in quite the same way ever again.

I must make a big mention of youtube users a7dro and Andrew David (andrewdavid68) whose incredible footage I used in the diaries. I've seen no other footage anywhere that conveys the feeling of Crib Goch like their amazing images - Check out their youtube channels for more great footage!
