Dear Friends & Visitors/Readers/Viewers,

(Please click onred linksbelow)

Due to the limitation (less than 20 minutes) YouTube has placed on sunisthefuture channel at the moment, I had to split the “Special Moments of American Solar Challenge 2012” into two parts: part 1 is posted for August 14, 2012, and part 2 is posted for August 15, 2012, at http://sunisthefuture.net .  Hope you have/will enjoy viewing these two parts of first movie production (w/music) here at sunisthefuture.net , sharing the trials, tribulations,  joy, and exuberant energy of participants of American Solar Challenge 2012.   One thing is for certain: it is the cooperative spirit and perpetual optimism of solar energy enthusiasts/industry (also seen among ASC2012 participants) that had brought down the cost of solar energy this past decade.

It is with both pleasure and excitement that I’d like to unveil the video of today, “Special Moments of American Solar Challenge 2012  (2 of 2)”, for this is the first time for me  to use movie/video editing software.  I’ve learned that one needs to be relentless in cutting footage and meticulous in tapering the music at the beginning and ending of each segment.  I’ve even explored many sites online  for royalty free music (available at Pond5) and discovered that  background music makes tremendous difference in the final product. There is definitely still much more to be learned.  After spending much time editing  various footage, synchronizing and fading in or fading out of the music, and overcoming  frustration in having to deal with instability with certain movie making software, I’ve moved on to Adobe Premier Pro (much more reliable and time-saving).  But for the moment, take a look at this clip below and compare it to the twenty-six videos already uploaded at sunisthefuture Youtube Channel (footages prior to yours truly’s attempt at compositing and adding  of music) and either leave a comment below or email me at sunisthefuture@gmail.com to let me know of your preference or suggestions.  Without further ado, let’s share these very special moments, below:

In the “Special Moments of American Solar Challenge 2012″, I selected only the most memorable moments (such as University of Michigan’s hydroplaning experience, Oregon State University’s picking up a cat and named it Tesla (in 1 of 2), Illinois State University’s encountering Ohio state police and receiving donuts in exchange for wearing hats, Principia College’s breaking their own record on speed of repair work, etc.) that occurred during this solar car race;those of you who were interviewed may still be able to find the uncut and uncomposited versions at sunisthefuture Youtube Channel.  Please be very forgiving of my first time working with Adobe Premier Pro.  Nevertheless, I am  pleased with the fact that I can actually refer to myself as a producer, for the first time, in sharing these special moments of energized solar enthusiasts…driven by the magical dust of  sunshine.
