Kotzebue, AK – Montage – 20Sep11

This is the 2nd video made for the Nome Rotary Club meeting, Sept. 21st at Noon. I was surprised how much longer it was than Point Hope's. But certain clips were just too precious to cut. Would love feedback on the use of music, and whether it was effective. Also on the still shots. Thanks & enjoy!

Paddle To Swinomish: Arriving Canoes – July 25th, 2011

Amidst the pouring rain, canoe after canoe arrived on the Swinomish shore in the channel next to the reservation. Families hustled in to get their canoe's off the sand & safely set aside. After the rain, chiefs and others came back after supper to empty out water & dry their canoes. It was quite a muddy mob scene that day. Severely unedited- thanks for your patience!
