Simon Woodside is my hero this week.
He's been very patiently educating my stupid ass all week long about how to make my video's smaller, look better, and play well in all browsers.
Now, in all fairness Kevin Marks has been trying to help me do this for weeks (months?), but for some reason the instructions just weren't clicking in my brain. Sorry Kevin!
The first result of Simon's tutoring to come to fruition this week is a revamped version of the old Daily Show clip of Henry Kissinger heading up the "Independent" 911 investigation committee. (Yes he was subsequently taken off that committee.)
Update: lots of folks wanted a direct link to the movie file -- so there it is!
The Daily Show rendition of the event is priceless. (I re-edited it a bit.)
This all came up recently when Henry Kissinger appeared on the Daily Show this last Monday night (October 20, 2003).
So please let me know - firstname.lastname@example.org -- how these new movies play in your browser and if you like them better. This one's just a file generated from the quicktime I generated earlier, so the quality issues can't be addressed. But, once I figure out what Simon is trying to teach me, I believe I will be delivering all of my movies in this manner. (Unless you write me to tell me it sucks and to stick with the imovie-defaulted "email" movies I've been using.)
Thanks again Simon!!!
