Interactive video lesson plan for: Vikings! Sock!

Activity overview:

This is the first all-high-definition video I have made. It took me all day to edit, and I lost count of the number of times the software crashed or froze. I uploaded it as an experiment, since the video plays on my new computer in a very jerky fashion. This new computer of mine is the single most expensive thing I have ever bought, so this is a bit of a disappointment, as it is supposedly the latest model. Anyway, the video seems to play on YouTube moderately well, but I can't claim to be impressed with the definition. It seems to be just discernibly better than my last camera. When I view the raw footage, the quality is much better. So, despite my massive upgrading that has taken months to achieve, nothing much seems to have changed. The opening shots seem to have suffered the most and seem very low-res. If anyone has an explanation for this, I'm keen to read it.

Lindisfarne is very windy.
