Scooting for Peace – the Minimentuary

Mon, Mar 9, 2009


Scooting for Peace from Alix Bryan on Vimeo.
I will call this a minimentary. Too short to be a documentary, too long for most people to watch.

The video covers most everything about the 22,000 mile trip; the concept, interviews, scenery, scooter community, elements of nature, mishaps and the godawful process of packing/unpacking everyday.

I sorted through 15 hours of footage and worked on it for 3 days.

It is my first endeavor at sitting down to make a good video. I learned a lot this round and hope that I can integrate that knowledge into some future projects. I used iMovie and had to shuffle clips between computer and external hard drive. Before compression it was 28 Gigs.

*My apologies that the sound and audio DON’T line up in the beginning. Extracting audio and moving it up didn’t help either. Hmm.

Ok, Cheers to all.
I’m still blown away by your achievement Alix! Thanks for letting us be a part of it.

    An absolutely amazing accomplishment well done and documented. You need not make excuses for the quality of the video as the message is loud and clear.
    Your Scooting For Peace ride has never been attempted before and therefor justifiably it is and should be a part of American History.

    Thanks Steve!
    I’m glad you came out to ride!

    @Danny, thank ya for the compliments on the minimentuary! I don’t know if it will ever be attempted again, either. Maybe when I’m 50, I’ll get a gaggle of peeps to ride the route again. Maybe that time we will allow a support vehicle so we don’t have to pack the damn scooter!
