[Please note; I cleared this e-mail with Julian before posting!!]
During my last 6 month long trip to Morocco I made a documentary on
the pistes of southern Morocco - aimed at people that would like to
go and explore the area in their vehicle so that they have some idea
of what to expect. Some of you may have seen it advertised in various places.
As I'm off on a long trip again shortly, I'd like to sell a few more
of the DVD's (75 minutes, PAL) before leaving, so for one week only
I'm reducing the price for ECLO members from =A316.99 to =A39.99
including worldwide postage. To find out more, please visit this page for ELCO members:

**//** You must order from the above link to get the special
price!!! **//**
Here's a review from Chris Scott, author of Sahara Overland:
"The result of six months travel in southern Morocco, this dvd is
actually more a very watchable personal travelogue and overview of
the country than a detailed route guide. That sort of material is
better presented in a book and indeed is supported on the roamingyak
website associated with the vid.
Instead, you get a good impression for off-highway travel in rural
southern Morocco in a way that a regular guidebook can't manage.
There's only so much you can do filming yourself and a vehicle, and a lot of effort was made to getting a variety of shots, but you do miss out on some long and wide shots of the green Landrover trundling
through the landscape. The custom-written soundtrack adds greatly to
the film's ambience, and with the cover and snazzy presentation, it's a great package."
Cheers,
Darrin

Hi Darrin,
I tried to download the sample preview of your DVD, but Adobe won't let me
register without them sharing all the details they wanted themselves with
anybody else they deem fit, I'm afraid I can't agree to that, so sorry no
sale.

Hi Chas,
You mean you need Quicktime from Apple to play the video file?
http://www.apple.com/uk/quicktime/download/
Just click on the 'Free Download' button, ignore the request for
details such as email and they let you download it anyway...
They are just bluffing ;-)
Cheers, Darrin

Chas,
I hate the Quicktime player and keep meaning to try something different, you
post reminded me of an alternative I found and never got around to trying.
I have searched again and think it was this one but it appears you only get
a 30 day trial now - I though it was free I also can't work out if it needs
the where it gets the quicktime codec from, might be worth a try.

or try VLC - it's Open Source (Free) and plays virtually everything:

But having quicktime installed is a good idea - you'd have to live in
Staffordshire not to like Quicktime player ;-)

Hi Darrin,
Thanks for that, I have viewed the samples and bought the DVD (Paypal) I see
you have a strange attraction for goats, were the toilet facilities a bit
basic? or do you always have that attraction.

Not taking up the offer of the video I'm afraid - as a documentary filmmaker
I have views as to what constitutes a documentary - but more interested in
the fact that you are selling your HJ60...? Keeping the LR?

Well it's a comedy to some.
"Pre-1900: The French used the term documentary to refer to any non-
fiction film medium, including travelogues and instructional videos."
Yes, the HJ60 is for sale and I'm keeping the landy. I sorted out the
noise levels in the LR and it's just too much effort starting on
another vehicle, especially as I'm leaving in October. Shame, as it's
quite nice in many ways...

Not that it really matters but there wasn't much filmmaking pre 1900. Some
key moments in the development, see below...
A filmed boxing match of eight minutes duration, Young Griffo vs. Battling
Charles Barnett (filmed on the roof of Madison Square Garden, May 4, 1895)
was the first motion picture in the world to be screened before a paying
audience, at 153 Broadway in New York City. It premiered on May 20, 1895,
more than seven months before the Lumi=E8re brothers showed their film in
Paris.
Whilst in France there is a general feeling that they invented everything -
flying, photography, cinema, the automobile etc, the first documentary film

Whilst in France there is a general feeling that they invented everything -
flying, photography, cinema, the automobile etc, the first documentary film
could be attributed to the Lumiere brothers in France in 1895, but as the
piece above shows, maybe they were beaten to it. But truly significant work
came out of many countries including Russia, the USA, the UK, Poland etc etc
and more.
Yes Julian off topic and NOTHING to do with our cars but I don't believe the
statement below is correct. There is a big difference in my view between
non-fiction and documentary. Both are valid and desirable.

Well, one silly comment deserved another - and Wikipedia is full of
silly information. If my film isn't a travel documentary I don't know
what else to call it.
Now, be nice or I'll start throwing things onto your roof - I can see
your street from my place.

Got my Pistes DVD yesterday, now just have to wait for my wife to leave the
house for an hour or so (she likes 4x4's and travel but more the doing than
watching)
Re the documentary or not issue, I do worry when people try to put specific
boundaries on things, it can become very constricting... I like innovation
and originality, appreciate amateur or semi pro work might be different to a
BBC production, on the other hand it might have a fresher approaches,
cheaper, often tailored to a smaller audience and doesn't need to be made in
a way that meets the approval of an audience on thousands.
Anyway something film makers, documentary makers etc will have to get used
to, I wonder if when the common masses began writing books and so on monks
or whoever complained that=92s not writing?
