Much to my surprise, the first collection day was actually schedule for today, not tomorrow. We grabbed the first three cameras and, as the title indicates, SUCCESS! I’ll cut together an actual video showing the entire process of a climb at some point, but for now, here is what I captured of the first collection. Also, be warned that the camera work might make you a bit queasy. Even though I have a Go-Pro that I should be able to strap to my helmet, I have yet to install it. So, all the climbing shots are from my regular camera, which I held in my mouth.
Here are a few of the photos. I was SO excited to see that we actually got some animals. Also, all three are species I’ve never managed to get on my cameras before! It’s just the first of many, but I’m so glad that I’ve got at least something to show for all our effort so far. The sloth isn't super easy to find, but see if you can spot it!
Crap I Found in the Forest!
I checked around and no, the seeds from the giant pod are not toxic. I'll let you know if I die, though.
Though all my on-camera experience to date (see below) has indicated a complete lack of charisma on screen, I have decided to post weekly video logs. Here’s the first one, hope you enjoy it.
Kevin’s IMDb Profile:
TV: In a riveting 1996 interview regarding the national excitement surrounding the Atlanta Olympic Games with KARE11 News, I revealed: “I…umm…umm…like gymnastics!” and “I…umm…uhh…don’t remember when I started!” in the squeaky, manically enthusiastic voice that simply refused to change until almost college. Reviews: Mind-blowing - unless you can find a copy of it, in which case please erase it from the universe.
Fake TV: Mock interview about my own project (i.e. something I should know) at Stony Brook University. Reviews: How do you insert a “vomit” emoticon here?
