Well 4 months after finishing Te Araroa and a lot of video editing later, I now have a documentary that is in reasonable form that I’m happy to share with everyone still following this blog. This is my amateurish attempt at a documentary of the trail. I captured footage along the way mainly as a lasting memory for myself but wanted to get it into some form of movie that I could share with others. Here it is. Most of the footage was captured on my GoPro, held in my hand or supported on my walking pole so it’s a little shaking in spots. Ideally I would have loved to have done more with my cameras but I wasn’t prepared to bring along my Canon 7D SLR -weighing in a over 2 kgs. I also had big ideas of doing lots more pre-placing of the GoPro up the trail but I found constantly having to walk back to retrieve it difficult with so many big and long walking days. I would have loved to have captured more of the people I walk with as well to share to social aspects of the Te Araroa tramping community, but unfortunately didn’t. The final product isn’t too bad IMAO. It’s also my first attempt at using a Mac and Final Cur Pro. Hope you enjoy it.
