Little Aticama River - Sights & Sounds
Years ago I saw the John Travolta movie, "Blow Out". Travolta plays a sound man who encounters the challenge of his lifetime which breaks him. That movie introduced me to the world of sound recording.

For a long time I have wanted to record sounds myself, and I did not know how to do it. Recently however, I learned how Little Mavicito's recorded sounds could be transfered to my computer. I began to be a sound man myself!

This morning I captured the sounds of Little Aticama River and decided to make a video using this audio clip.

Little Aticama River Video!

Well, YouTube has been kind of a puzzlement today! The latest thing was a rejection of the River video because of "Duplicate Upload." Somehow the video got into YouTube's system, but was not actually published. Hmmmmm?

So, I went back into Microsoft Movie Maker, reloaded the finished video, and trimmed some sound off the end of the file. This should make YouTube believe that this is a new video. If I'm correct, this new video should be published soon above.

Background on this video.
This morning I woke up before dawn. The window alongside my bed had been open all nite because it has been unusually warm. Listening to the sounds outside was wonderful. Especially the sound of the water. As you may know, I love rivers, the sound of them, the look of them.

That's when I began wanting to share these sounds with you. And that is the story behind this video!
