Good stuff. Nice equalized belay anchor. Gotta love those garage sale cams :~)

Stupid do you get your movie to end at the same time as the track ends?

Yes, the garage sale cams - best $20 I ever spent!

How do I get the movie to end at the same time as the track? I just trim down the movie to fit the music. Sometime this works better than others - I wasn't really able to make it happen for my 3rd Flatiron movie. Anywho, here is my strategy for making these little movies:

  1. I download all the clips from my camera into the computer and then I load them up into my movie making software without looking at them (this is usually between 15 and 20 minutes).
  2. I watch the footage all the way through.
  3. I delete all the crappy clips.
  4. I then go through the clips that have some good stuff and I trim out the bad/slow parts. I find that for the climbing movies that I can cut out a lot of each clip because the climber spent a lot of time just standing there, or looking for holds, or generally not moving around much. These make for boring footage so I can trim out the segments where not much is happening.
  5. After I have all the crap trimmed away I make title screens and credit screens.
  6. Next I pick out music. I generally have tunes in mind, but from the eligible candidates I choose tracks whose time pretty closely matches the length of my movie - usually slightly shorter than my movie. Then I trim away the remaining bits and pieces until the footage length is the same as the soundtrack length. If I can't get my footage time to match my soundtrack time then I go in and cut segments out of the soundtrack.
  7. Then I'm done.
